Your Guide to 1996 Lexus GS300 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Lexus GS300 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your GS300. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine GS300 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 Lexus GS300!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lexus, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your GS300's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1996 Lexus GS300 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lexus GS300 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Lexus GS300 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Lexus GS300. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your GS300 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 GS300 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your GS300 stranded. Your Lexus GS300 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1996 Lexus GS300 engine. See Lexus's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 GS300 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1996 Lexus GS300.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lexus GS300 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Lexus GS300's steering and suspension system.

  • When should I have Lexus GS300 alignment checked? You know your Lexus GS300 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Lexus GS300 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Lexus GS300 engines.
  •  Why are my Lexus dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Lexus GS300 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
