Your 2012 IS350’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

2012 Lexus IS350 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lexus IS350 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lexus IS350 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus IS350 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 IS350 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
