WHY SHOULD I CHANGE MY OIL?

An oil change simply involves removing the old oil from your car engine and replacing this with new, fresh oil. This process is essential to extend the life of your engine elements, by preventing any heat caused by friction and eventual corrosion. It will also ensure that your oil filter continues to prevent large and damaging particles from entering the engine.

HOW DO I CHANGE MY OIL?

To ensure that your oil change is completed correctly and to prevent any damage to your Lexus, please contact your nearest Dealer to arrange for an oil change by our trained experts.

  • HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY ENGINE OIL?

    Lexus vehicles in which 0w-20 synthetic oil is required have been approved for extended oil change intervals of 10,000 km/12-months. However, you should continue to check the car engine oil levels regularly and top up if needed.

    Engines that recommend 5w-20 or 5w-30 mineral oil, but allow the optional use of 0w-20 synthetic oil will continue to require 5,000-km/6-month (whichever comes first) oil change intervals if the 0w-20 is used.

    If the vehicle operation meets the standard criteria for "Special Operating Conditions" such as: driving off-road, on dirt roads, towing a trailer, making repeated short trips under 32˚F, or extensive idling; the engine oil must be replaced at 5,000 km intervals, regardless of what type of oil is used.

  • WHICH ENGINE OIL IS RIGHT FOR MY CAR?

    The engine oil you need to use is varies depending on the engine in your vehicle. To ensure that the correct oil is used when completing an engine oil change we recommend you contact your local dealer and arrange an oil change with our trained experts.
