2014 Infiniti QX50 Oil Change Service

When to Change 2014 Infiniti QX50 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2014 Infiniti QX50 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Infiniti recommends changing your 2014 QX50’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your QX50 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Infiniti QX50. 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 2014 Infiniti QX50?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Infiniti QX50 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your QX50’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your QX50 by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

2014 Infiniti QX50 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti QX50? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Infiniti QX50 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 oil on my own? 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 QX50 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
