Infiniti recommends changing your 2002 QX4’s oil 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2002 Infiniti QX4 Oil Change Q&A

  • 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, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your QX4’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
