How Often to Change 1993 Lexus LS400 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lexus LS400’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 1993 Lexus LS400’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your LS400 in the above table. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your LS400 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lexus recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus LS400. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Lexus LS400 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lexus LS400. Lexus has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1993 LS400. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your LS400’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. 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.

1993 Lexus LS400 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus LS400? 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 cause your Lexus LS400 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 LS400 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 LS400 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
