Toyota recommends having your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Land Cruiser 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

2002 Toyota Land Cruiser Oil Change Q&A

  • 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 parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota Land Cruiser spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 old cylinder walls.
