How Often to Change 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Toyota Land Cruiser’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Toyota recommends having your 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Land Cruiser may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Toyota if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Toyota Land Cruiser. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser

  • Should I check my Toyota Land Cruiser motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Toyota Land Cruiser engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Toyota oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota Land Cruiser 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 worn cylinder walls.
