When to Change 1997 Infiniti QX4 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Infiniti QX4’s oil changed? Turn to 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.”

Your 1997 QX4’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your QX4 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti QX4. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1997 Infiniti QX4 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti QX4 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti QX4 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Infiniti QX4 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
