How Often to Change 2018 Lexus GX460 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Lexus GX460? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.

Lexus recommends changing your 2018 GX460’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your GX460 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 notice excess 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus GX460. 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.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2018 Lexus GX460 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lexus has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2018 GX460.

In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your GX460’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your GX460 by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2018 Lexus GX460 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lexus GX460 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lexus GX460 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
