How Often to Change 2009 Lexus RX350 Oil

Need more info about 2009 Lexus RX350 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 changing your 2009 RX350’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your RX350 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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 areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus RX350. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2009 Lexus RX350 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Lexus RX350 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Lexus RX350 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lexus RX350 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 RX350 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
