How Often to Get 2009 Lexus LS460 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Lexus LS460’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lexus recommends changing your 2009 LS460’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your LS460 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lexus if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lexus LS460. 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.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your LS460’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your LS460 by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Lexus LS460

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus LS460? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lexus LS460 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus LS460 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus LS460 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
