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.”

Infiniti recommends changing your 2017 Q50’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q50 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Q50 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Infiniti Q50 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Infiniti Q50. Infiniti has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2017 Q50. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Q50's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle.

2017 Infiniti Q50 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti Q50 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Infiniti Q50 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti Q50 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti Q50 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
