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.”

Your 2016 Q70L’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Q70L may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti Q70L. 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.

2016 Infiniti Q70L Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti Q70L engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Infiniti Q70L engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
