Your 2012 LFA’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your LFA may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus LFA. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2012 Lexus LFA Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus LFA? Engine oil lubricates 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 LFA engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus LFA 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus LFA spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
