How Often to Get 2008 Lexus RX350 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Lexus RX350’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2008 Lexus RX350’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your RX350 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lexus if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lexus RX350. 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.

Lexus has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2008 RX350. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your RX350's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your RX350 by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

2008 Lexus RX350 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Lexus RX350 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your RX350’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lexus RX350 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
