How Often to Change 2000 Lexus ES300 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2000 Lexus ES300? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lexus recommends changing your 2000 ES300’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your ES300 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lexus recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus ES300. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Lexus ES300 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2000 Lexus ES300 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lexus has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2000 ES300. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your ES300’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your ES300 by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2000 Lexus ES300

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus ES300? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your ES300’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus ES300 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus ES300 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
