When to Change 2021 Lexus RX350 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Lexus RX350? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 changing your 2021 RX350’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Lexus-recommended oil change intervals, your RX350 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lexus RX350. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Lexus RX350 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2021 Lexus RX350 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lexus has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2021 RX350. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your RX350’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential 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 preferences, weather and road conditions,

2021 Lexus RX350 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lexus RX350? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Lexus RX350 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? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lexus RX350 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
