How Often to Get 2001 Lexus GS300 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Lexus GS300? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lexus recommends changing your 2001 GS300’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your GS300 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lexus recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

2001 Lexus GS300 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Lexus GS300 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your GS300’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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
