2005 Infiniti QX56 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Infiniti QX56 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Infiniti QX56 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti oil on my own? 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. 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 QX56 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
