How Often to Change 2012 Infiniti FX50 Oil

Need more info about 2012 Infiniti FX50 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2012 FX50’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your FX50 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti FX50. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Infiniti FX50 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2012 Infiniti FX50 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Infiniti has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2012 FX50. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your FX50’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your FX50 by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2012 Infiniti FX50

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti FX50 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your FX50’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 FX50 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
