2011 Infiniti FX50 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti FX50 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti FX50 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti FX50 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti FX50 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
