What to Know About 1998 Infiniti Q45 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Infiniti Q45 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Q45 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Q45, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1998 Infiniti Q45 maintenance schedule!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Q45's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1998 Infiniti Q45 problems.

Overview of Essential Infiniti Q45 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Infiniti Q45 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Q45’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1998 Infiniti Q45? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Q45 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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. 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 Q45 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1998 Infiniti Q45's engine run smoother. See Infiniti's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1998 Q45 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1998 Infiniti Q45.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Infiniti Q45 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. Components within your Infiniti Q45's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Infiniti Q45 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Infiniti Q45 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Infiniti Q45 radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 Infiniti Q45 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.
