How Often to Change 1998 Lexus GS300 Oil

Need more info about 1998 Lexus GS300 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1998 GS300’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your GS300 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lexus GS300. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Lexus GS300

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus GS300? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Lexus GS300 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lexus oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus GS300 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
