How Often to Change 2006 Lexus IS350 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Lexus IS350? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 2006 IS350’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your IS350 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lexus IS350. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2006 Lexus IS350 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus IS350? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lexus IS350 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lexus IS350 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus IS350 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
