How Often to Get 2018 Infiniti Q70 Oil Changes

Need more info about 2018 Infiniti Q70 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Infiniti recommends changing your 2018 Q70’s oil at regular 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 car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti Q70. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2018 Infiniti Q70 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti Q70? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti Q70 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti Q70 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 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 Q70 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
