How Often to Get 2008 Lexus GS460 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Lexus GS460? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2008 GS460’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your GS460 in the above table. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your GS460 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lexus GS460. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Lexus GS460

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus GS460? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Lexus GS460 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lexus oil on my own? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus GS460 exhaust smoke grayish 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
