When to Change 2003 Infiniti QX4 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Infiniti QX4? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.

Infiniti recommends having your 2003 Infiniti QX4’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your QX4 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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.

2003 Infiniti QX4 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Infiniti QX4 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your QX4’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti QX4 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 QX4 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
