2017 Infiniti QX50 Oil Change

How Often to Change 2017 Infiniti QX50 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Infiniti QX50’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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.

Your 2017 QX50’s oil should be changed according to Infiniti’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your QX50 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Infiniti QX50. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Infiniti QX50?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Infiniti QX50 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Infiniti has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2017 Infiniti QX50 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, an auto technician will change your QX50’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other 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 preferences, and mileage.

2017 Infiniti QX50 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti QX50? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Infiniti QX50 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti QX50 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
