2001 Lexus GS430 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus GS430? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Lexus GS430 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 GS430 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 GS430 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
