After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Infiniti recommends changing your 2002 Q45’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q45 in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your Q45 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti Q45. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 Infiniti Q45

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti Q45 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti Q45 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 worn cylinder walls.
