How Often to Change 2011 Lexus IS F Oil

Need more info about 2011 Lexus IS F oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lexus recommends having your 2011 Lexus IS F’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your IS F may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus IS F. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2011 Lexus IS F Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lexus IS F motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lexus IS F engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lexus IS F 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
