How Often to Change 2004 Infiniti M45 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2004 Infiniti M45? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too.

Infiniti recommends having your 2004 Infiniti M45’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your M45 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your M45 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti M45. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2004 Infiniti M45?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Infiniti M45. Infiniti has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2004 M45. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your M45's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your M45 by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Infiniti M45

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti M45? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Infiniti M45 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti M45 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti M45 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
