Infiniti recommends changing your 1999 Q45’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Q45 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

1999 Infiniti Q45 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti Q45 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Infiniti Q45 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti Q45 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
