Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Lexus GX470? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Your 2003 GX470’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your GX470 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lexus GX470. 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.

2003 Lexus GX470 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lexus GX470 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Lexus GX470 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lexus GX470 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 exhaust smoke gray 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
