Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lexus LS400
Bring your 2000 Lexus LS400 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services
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.

Could your 2000 Lexus LS400 be ready for a new battery?
If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years).
Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your LS400 may need a replacement battery sooner.
Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lexus LS400 battery.
It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak.
Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your LS400 stranded.
Your Lexus LS400 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can
support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2000 Lexus LS400 running newer, longer.
See Lexus's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2000 LS400 in the chart at the top of this page.
Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate.

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. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
When should I switch my Lexus LS400 to high mileage oil?
If your Lexus LS400 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
Can Lexus dashboard warning lights wait?
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. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Lexus LS400, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
