Your 2016 RC350’s oil should be changed according to Lexus’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RC350 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your RC350 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances.

2016 Lexus RC350 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus RC350? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lexus RC350 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lexus RC350 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 RC350 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
