Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser

  • What can low oil do to my Toyota FJ Cruiser engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Toyota FJ Cruiser engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Toyota FJ Cruiser 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota FJ Cruiser exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
