Your Guide to 2003 Infiniti M45 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Infiniti M45 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your M45 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine M45 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2003 Infiniti M45!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Infiniti, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your M45 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2003 Infiniti M45 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Infiniti M45 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2003 Infiniti M45 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your M45’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2003 Infiniti M45? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your M45 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Infiniti M45 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Infiniti M45 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2003 Infiniti M45's engine run smoother. To learn how often Infiniti recommends you have the oil changed in your 2003 M45, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2003 Infiniti M45.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Infiniti M45 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Infiniti M45 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Infiniti M45's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Infiniti M45 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Infiniti M45 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Infiniti M45? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2003 Infiniti M45 maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

2003 Infiniti M45 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2003 Infiniti M45. Get answers to common Infiniti M45 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Infiniti M45 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Infiniti M45 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Infiniti M45 engines.
  • Can Infiniti dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Infiniti M45 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
