How Often to Change 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Land Cruiser may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Toyota recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Toyota Land Cruiser. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Toyota has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2000 Land Cruiser. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Land Cruiser’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Land Cruiser by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2000 Toyota Land Cruiser Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Toyota Land Cruiser motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Land Cruiser’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Toyota Land Cruiser oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
