Question

blowing a lot of smoke when I start the car, Infiniti claims that since I never had the oil changed that the whole engine needs to be replaced. The car runs great except for the smoke coming out the back when started.

    I have a 2008 and I am having the same problem and of course because it would have been warranty work they told me that the vehicle hasn't been maintained and when I first told them about it it only had 43k miles on it and that they wouldn't honor the warranty. Its also a qx56

    may be a sludged motor . some times can replace the valve cover assemblise and clean out the sludge around the cams and headbolts with lots of carburetor cleaner. also will need to clean out lower oil pan and oil pickup
