How Often to Change 2004 Infiniti Q45 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2004 Infiniti Q45? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2004 Q45’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Q45 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2004 Infiniti Q45?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2004 Infiniti Q45 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2004 Infiniti Q45 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Q45’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Q45 by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Infiniti Q45

  • Should I check my Infiniti Q45 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Infiniti Q45 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti Q45 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
