Maintenance Guidelines for a Long-Lasting Infinity

Modern Maintenance

Gone are the days when you could tune up your car in your driveway. However, even with the complexity of today’s Infinity vehicles, there are many maintenance tasks that you can perform yourself—or at least be knowledgeable about—to extend your vehicle’s lifespan and ensure peak performance.

Here’s a breakdown of key components to keep an eye on:

Essential Ignition Components

  • Spark Plugs: Essential to your engine’s health, these should be inspected every 30,000 miles. Substandard plugs can lead to inefficient fuel consumption and lower power output.
  • Ignition Coils: Worn-out coils can cause a range of problems, from poor fuel efficiency to engine misfires. Regular inspection can prevent these issues.
  • Spark Plug Cables: Although they’re less prone to failure due to modern materials, it’s a good idea to examine them for signs of wear, and replace as necessary.

Important Filters

  • Oil Filter: Replacing the oil filter during every oil change (usually every 3,000-5,000 miles) will help keep your engine running smoothly by filtering out contaminants.
  • Air Filter: Crucial for good fuel economy and performance, the air filter should be replaced roughly every 20,000 miles or as conditions demand.
  • Cabin Air Filter: For improved air quality inside your vehicle, replace this filter annually or as recommended by Infinity.
  • Fuel Filter: Overlooking this can lead to engine performance problems, such as hesitation and reduced power. Typically, this should be replaced every 30,000 miles.

Additional Infinity Maintenance Components

  • Transmission Filters: If you own an Infinity with an automatic transmission, you should replace the transmission fluid and filter about every 30,000 miles to extend its life.
  • O2 Sensors: Critical to engine efficiency and emission control, these should be replaced based on Infinity’s recommended intervals.
  • Coolant Levels: Keep an eye on this to prevent your engine from overheating and to ensure optimal performance.
  • Serpentine Belt: A quick visual inspection for cracks or wear can save you from a broken belt and an inconvenient breakdown. Replace approximately every 60,000 miles.

Handy Tips for Owners

  1. Cleanliness Is Key: Regular engine cleaning helps to prevent premature failure of mechanical parts.
  2. Manufacturer’s Advice: Always follow Infinity’s maintenance guidelines and schedules for optimal longevity and performance.
  3. Understand Before You Act: Make sure to understand the function of each part before attempting any DIY repairs.
  4. Adaptation Time: After installing new parts, your car’s computer may need a short period to adjust to them.

Great family owned business, run a cool father and son duo. I’ve been taking my cars here for over a decade.

I’ve come across 2 types of mechanics over the years: 1) fixes what needs fixing, checks everthing else out, tells the customer what to keep an eye on/expect in the future. 2) fixes what needs fixing and EVERYTHING else that it touches.

PB Foreign and Domestic is type 1) – straightforward, steady, and honest – which is why I keep coming back and I suspect it’s why the same guys have been working there for forever too.

For regular oil changes and maintanance, George is awesome and everyone he employs, this place is great no complaints! Always will look at something if you have a concern like I did. Minor and didn’t Rip me off like most places would have.

I truly feel like I’m getting the service that’s required and not being upsold on things I don’t need. The price is always better than anywhere else I’ve looked and repairs done timely. They always call if the estimate given to me ends up being different, sometimes it’s lower and if it’s higher they clearly explain why and if it’s absolutely necessary or a recommendation. I trust them.

If you want a local independent family owned car mechanic that is honest, trustworthy, reasonably priced, and not trying to nickel & dime you these are your guys! Aaron is especially a pleasure to deal with. He went above and beyond at my last oil change to help me on a few things that would have taken tons of time to figure out on my own, you can tell he enjoys helping people (when they aren’t too busy) and is just a personable good natured guy which is so great to have in a car mechanic. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

We really love PB Foreign and Domestic! They have served us well for years on 3 vehicles and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend over dealership or other local facilities. They don’t try to upsell you on things you do not need. Super friendly and can usually get you in within a day or two. It is best to call ahead and make an appointment.

Porsche Cayman – my car was overheating so I had my car towed to PB Foreign and Domestic Car Repair. The team was able to repair my car ( I needed a new radiator and water pump) and they gave me very fair pricing. I will definitely come back for my preventitive maintenance.
