2017 Infiniti Q60 Oil Change

How Often to Change 2017 Infiniti Q60 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Infiniti Q60’s oil changed? Look no further than 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.

Infiniti recommends having your 2017 Infiniti Q60’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Q60 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Infiniti recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti Q60. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Infiniti Q60 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Infiniti Q60 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2017 Infiniti Q60 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Q60’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Infiniti Q60

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti Q60 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Q60’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti Q60 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
