How Often to Get 2003 Lexus LX470 Oil Changes

Need more info about 2003 Lexus LX470 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2003 LX470’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your LX470 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lexus LX470. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Lexus LX470?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lexus LX470. Lexus has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2003 LX470. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your LX470’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important 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 LX470 by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2003 Lexus LX470

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus LX470? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your LX470’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lexus oil on my own? 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 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
