2018 Infiniti Q70L Oil Change

How Often to Change 2018 Infiniti Q70L Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Infiniti Q70L? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 Q70L’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q70L in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your Q70L 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2018 Infiniti Q70L?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2018 Infiniti Q70L motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2018 Infiniti Q70L vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Q70L's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Q70L by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Infiniti Q70L

  • Should I check my Infiniti Q70L motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Infiniti Q70L engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Infiniti Q70L oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti Q70L exhaust smoke grayish 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
