2018 Lexus LS500 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus LS500? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lexus LS500 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus LS500 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
