Changing the oil in your vehicle is imperative to extend your car’s lifespan and ensure it runs in tip-top shape. The service center of Lexus of Jacksonville has answers for everything you need to know about your Lexus oil change.

How Often Should I Change My Vehicle’s Oil?

Oil changes are routine maintenance that should be performed at regular intervals either by date or mileage, whichever comes first. Reminder stickers are placed on the inside windshield to let you know that you should change your oil by the recommended interval, depending on your vehicle and the oil type. Lexus vehicles using synthetic oil can expect to change their oil every 7,500-10,000 miles or every 12 months.

Vehicles using conventional oil may need to be serviced at the 5,000-mile mark or once every 6 months. These figures can change if the vehicle is being used in special operating conditions such as freezing temperatures, off-roading, towing, or long periods of idling.

What Are Some Signs My Vehicle Needs an Oil Change?

Your vehicle may need an oil change if:

  • You notice a check engine or maintenance light
  • Your vehicle has experienced excessive mileage
  • Your vehicle’s oil is dark
  • There are more engine noises than usual
  • Sluggish performance
