How Often to Get 1999 Lexus RX300 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Lexus RX300’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lexus recommends having your 1999 Lexus RX300’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RX300 in the above table. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your RX300 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of 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 long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lexus RX300. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Lexus RX300

  • What can low oil do to my Lexus RX300 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lexus RX300 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lexus RX300 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
