Here’s Why 1997 Lexus ES300 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Lexus ES300, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your ES300 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your ES300, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1997 Lexus ES300 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lexus themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your ES300 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1997 Lexus ES300 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lexus ES300

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1997 Lexus ES300 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your ES300’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1997 Lexus ES300 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your ES300 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Lexus ES300 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Lexus ES300 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1997 Lexus ES300's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lexus recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 ES300, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1997 Lexus ES300.
