When to Change 2018 Lexus GS300 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2018 Lexus GS300 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Lexus recommends having your 2018 Lexus GS300’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your GS300 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 excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lexus if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus GS300. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Lexus GS300 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lexus GS300. Lexus has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2018 GS300. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your GS300's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your GS300 by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Lexus GS300

  • Should I check my Lexus GS300 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lexus GS300 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
