Need more info about 2012 Lexus IS250 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2012 IS250’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your IS250 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus IS250. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2012 Lexus IS250 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus IS250? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Lexus IS250 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus IS250 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 IS250 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
