It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Toyota recommends having your 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Land Cruiser may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Toyota recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Toyota Land Cruiser? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, 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. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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 worn cylinder walls.
