Your 1999 LS400’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your LS400 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

1999 Lexus LS400 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Lexus LS400 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your LS400’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lexus LS400 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
