2016 Lexus IS300 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lexus IS300 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lexus IS300 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 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus IS300 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
