Lexus recommends changing your 1999 GS400’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your GS400 in the above table. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your GS400 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Lexus GS400

  • Should I check my Lexus GS400 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Lexus GS400 engine failure. 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 GS400 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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.
