The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lexus, your vehicle manufacturer.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lexus LS400

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Lexus LS400 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your LS400. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1996 Lexus LS400 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your LS400 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lexus LS400 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Lexus LS400 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Lexus LS400 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 LS400. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Lexus LS400.

  • When should I have Lexus LS400 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage.

  • When does my Lexus LS400 need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Lexus LS400? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Lexus dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Lexus LS400 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
