Not sure how or where to get your Infiniti M56’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2011 M56’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your M56 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti M56. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2011 Infiniti M56 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti M56 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Infiniti M56 engine failure. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
