How Often to Get 2006 Infiniti QX56 Oil Changes

Need more info about 2006 Infiniti QX56 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Infiniti recommends having your 2006 Infiniti QX56’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your QX56 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti QX56. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2006 Infiniti QX56 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Infiniti QX56 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Infiniti QX56 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 QX56 oil at home? 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
