When to Change 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 2016 Land Cruiser’s oil should be changed according to Toyota’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Toyota if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

Toyota has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Land Cruiser’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Land Cruiser by considering your driving style, local climate,

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Toyota Land Cruiser engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Toyota Land Cruiser engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 Land Cruiser exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
