How Often to Change 2018 Lexus GS350 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Lexus GS350? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 having your 2018 Lexus GS350’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your GS350 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lexus if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus GS350. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Lexus GS350

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus GS350? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Lexus GS350 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
