Oil Changes for 2018 Infiniti Q50

How Often to Change 2018 Infiniti Q50 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Infiniti Q50’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 2018 Infiniti Q50’s motor oil changed at regular 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti Q50. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Q50 by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Infiniti Q50

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti Q50 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti Q50 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti Q50 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
