When to Change 1998 Infiniti QX4 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Infiniti QX4? 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.”

Infiniti recommends having your 1998 Infiniti QX4’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your QX4 may need its oil changed ASAP 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti QX4. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Infiniti QX4 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1998 Infiniti QX4 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1998 Infiniti QX4 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your QX4’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your QX4 by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

1998 Infiniti QX4 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti QX4 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Infiniti QX4 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti QX4 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
