How Often to Change 2009 Infiniti M45 Oil

Need more info about 2009 Infiniti M45 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Infiniti recommends changing your 2009 M45’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 2009 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 2009 M45. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto 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 preferences, and odometer.

2009 Infiniti M45 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Infiniti M45 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Infiniti M45 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti M45 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
