What to Know About 1996 Infiniti Q45 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Infiniti Q45 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Q45 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 Q45 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 Infiniti Q45!

Infiniti knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Q45's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Infiniti Q45 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Infiniti Q45 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Infiniti Q45 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Q45's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1996 Infiniti Q45 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Q45 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Q45 stranded. Your Infiniti Q45 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Infiniti Q45 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 Q45. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1996 Infiniti Q45.

Maintaining your Infiniti Q45 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Infiniti Q45 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 Q45's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Infiniti Q45 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Q45 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Infiniti Q45 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1996 Infiniti Q45 maintenance and repairs.

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

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Infiniti Q45. Get answers to common Infiniti Q45 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Infiniti Q45 alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1996 Q45 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Infiniti Q45? 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 Q45 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Infiniti? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Infiniti Q45, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
