How Often to Get 2017 Lexus RC350 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Lexus RC350’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Lexus recommends having your 2017 Lexus RC350’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your RC350 may need an oil change 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus RC350. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2017 Lexus RC350 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Lexus RC350 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 RC350 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
