Why Oil Changes are Important

Keeping up with oil changes is imperative to the health and longevity of your Lexus. Clean engine oil provides lubrication to the engine ensuring the components move properly, eliminates sludge or debris from going through the engine, improves fuel mileage, and maintains a proper temperature within the engine.

Accurately Check Oil Levels

Between scheduled oil changes, you can check your oil levels at home to ensure there aren’t any leaks or issues which may need attention. We recommend that you check your engine’s oil once a month, or before any long trips. Doing this will ensure the best performance of the vehicle, and help you avoid costly repairs and unnecessary issues. Follow the steps below to quickly and accurately check your oil levels at home: 

  • Ensure your Lexus is parked and on level ground
  • Make sure the oil is warm, too hot is dangerous & too cold is inaccurate
  • Review your Luxus’ Owner Manual for proper procedure & oil location
  • Once dipstick is found, remove & wipe down
  • Reinsert and remove to get an accurate reading

Oil change intervals 

Lexus is owned by Toyota, so the recommended oil for any newer Lexus is Toyota Genuine Motor Oil SAE 0W-20, which is synthetic motor oil. This synthetic motor oil was exclusively designed to increase fuel economy, help the engine readily start in colder temperatures, and last longer. When using Toyota Genuine Motor Oil, you should get your oil changed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If you opt for conventional oil, it is recommended that you have it changed every 3,500 miles. When your Lexus is scheduled to have an oil change, it is important that you do not postpone, this will aid in the performance and lifespan of your vehicle. 

Benefits of Synthetic Oil

Lexus recommends Synthetic Oil on all newer makes, this oil provides more evenly distributed oil and additives to better lubricate your Luxus’ engine. This oil is formulated with low viscosity, increasing fuel efficiency, reducing friction, and increasing power. It is recommended that synthetic oil be changed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles to ensure clean oil and optimal lubrication. Additional benefits of using synthetic oil in your Lexus include: 

  • Protection against oil breakdown for a cleaner running engine and long engine life.
  • Cleaner oil with fewer impurities, increasing protection against varnishing and deposits.
  • Superior lubrication to reduce engine wear across the operating temperature range and optimizes fuel economy.
