2017 Infiniti QX30 Oil Change

When to Change 2017 Infiniti QX30 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2017 Infiniti QX30 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 QX30’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your QX30 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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 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 QX30. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Infiniti QX30?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Infiniti QX30. Infiniti has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2017 QX30. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your QX30's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s 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 habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Infiniti QX30

  • Should I check my Infiniti QX30 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti QX30 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 QX30 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti QX30 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
