How Often to Get 1999 Infiniti QX4 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Infiniti QX4? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Infiniti recommends having your 1999 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, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1999 Infiniti QX4?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Infiniti QX4. Infiniti has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1999 QX4. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your QX4’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your QX4 by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1999 Infiniti QX4 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti QX4 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Infiniti QX4 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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 QX4 exhaust smoke grayish 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
