Infiniti recommends having your 2016 Infiniti QX50’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your QX50 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti QX50. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2016 Infiniti QX50 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti QX50? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these 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.
  • How hard is it to change Infiniti QX50 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti QX50 exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
