When to Change 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Toyota recommends having your 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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 vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Toyota recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Toyota Land Cruiser?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Toyota Land Cruiser? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Land Cruiser’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Toyota Land 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
