When to Change 1993 Infiniti Q45 Engine Oil

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 1993 Q45’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q45 in the above table. Your Q45 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti Q45. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1993 Infiniti Q45 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Infiniti has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1993 Infiniti Q45 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Infiniti Q45

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti Q45? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Q45’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? 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 Q45 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
