How Often to Change 2001 Infiniti QX4 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Infiniti QX4? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2001 QX4’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your QX4 in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your QX4 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. 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 2001 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 most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2001 Infiniti QX4 vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your QX4’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your QX4 by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Infiniti QX4

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti QX4 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti QX4 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
