When to Change 2016 Infiniti Q50 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Infiniti Q50? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Your 2016 Q50’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q50 in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your Q50 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti Q50. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2016 Infiniti Q50 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti Q50 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Q50’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Infiniti Q50 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti Q50 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
