Lexus recommends having your 2000 Lexus GS400’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your GS400 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 long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus GS400. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2000 Lexus GS400 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lexus GS400 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, overheat, and cause your GS400’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 GS400 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus GS400 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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.
