How Often to Get 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Toyota recommends changing your 2018 Land Cruiser’s oil 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 knock knock knock 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, frequent dusty roads, 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 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Toyota Land Cruiser? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Toyota Land Cruiser engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Toyota Land Cruiser oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
