When to Change 2011 Lexus LS460 Engine Oil

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. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2011 LS460’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your LS460 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lexus recommends if you 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, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Lexus LS460 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lexus LS460. Lexus has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2011 LS460. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your LS460’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your LS460 by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2011 Lexus LS460 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Lexus LS460 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your LS460’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Lexus LS460 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
