When to Change 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 1997 Land Cruiser’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Toyota-recommended oil change intervals, your Land Cruiser may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Toyota if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Toyota Land Cruiser. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser

  • Should I check my Toyota Land Cruiser motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. 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 Land Cruiser oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
