How Often to Get 2008 Infiniti QX56 Oil Changes

Need more info about 2008 Infiniti QX56 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 having your 2008 Infiniti QX56’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your QX56 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti QX56. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2008 Infiniti QX56?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Infiniti QX56. Infiniti has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2008 QX56. This oil helps lubricate engine 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 QX56’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your QX56 by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

2008 Infiniti QX56 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Infiniti QX56 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your QX56’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti QX56 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
