How Often to Change 2001 Lexus IS300 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Lexus IS300? Turn to 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 2001 IS300’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your IS300 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lexus recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lexus IS300. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2001 Lexus IS300 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lexus IS300 engine? 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 excess heat, and eventually lead to Lexus IS300 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lexus IS300 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus IS300 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
