Could your 1997 Lexus LS400 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty LS400) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 1997 Lexus LS400 running newer, longer. See Lexus's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1997 LS400 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1997 Lexus LS400.

Routine upkeep for your Lexus LS400 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

If you fall behind on routine Lexus LS400 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally!

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Lexus LS400? You know your Lexus LS400 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Lexus LS400 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Lexus LS400 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Lexus? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
