When to Change 2021 Lexus RC350 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lexus RC350’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Lexus recommends changing your 2021 RC350’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus RC350. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your RC350’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your RC350 by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Lexus RC350

  • Should I check my Lexus RC350 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
