How Often to Change 2016 Infiniti Q70 Oil

Need more info about 2016 Infiniti Q70 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2016 Q70’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your Q70 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti Q70. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Infiniti Q70?

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Infiniti Q70

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti Q70 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti Q70 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti Q70 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
