I’ll check the engine cover...they must have done something when doing the work.
What oil did they use? I would NOT trust most shops to change the oil on the QX30... I wouldn't be surprised if they used 0W20 or 5W30 because "it's got an Infiniti badge". However, that would be a REALLY bad idea for these cars, which should use a *quality* 0W40 with MB 229.5 certification.
