I thought the tranny was sealed. I change the tranny fluid on my car more often than the maintenance schedule suggests. It isn't necessary according to the maintenance schedule. It should say if new oil hold reset. That's led to an inordinate number of transmission failures sometimes multiple instances for the same vehicle and ultimately helped kill off that model.
Use from the Lexus Oil Change Monitor will typically double or perhaps triple the oil change interval for a typical Lexus when compared to the 3,000 mile oil change. Synthetic motor oil is a lot more costly than normal petroleum oil in the outset. Illuminate solidly for 1 second iv.

Do a little research into automotive fluids and then decide if you really want to leave transmission fluid in your transmission for 100,000 miles. Get on the back seat and face the third brake light.
Various Lexus dealers recommend that spark plugs be inspected after 15,000 miles and changed or tuned up after your Lexus rakes in 60,000 miles. I noticed that after 5K, the oil seems to degrade a lot faster, accumulates a lot more dirt and retains less of its viscosity. Works in gas or diesel engines. When that happens people like to blame the car or transmission rather than themselves for failing to change it. What it does lose however is the corrosion inhibitors that can cause huge problems in older vehicles. Actually you can pretty much tell by the dipstick if it is still pinkish then leave it alone, once it starts getting a dark look to it then do it. A penny test also helps a Lexus owner to know when tires need changing after treads wear out.
After researching this topic, we are hopeful Lexus will share in the expense of this repair since it has been documented that similar failures have occurred. I know the prices are a rip off, just want to know if the service is actually required? His vehicle makes the exact same noise upon starting the engine. Lexus recommends 5k oil changes so it's moot. Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds. Overall, it's a fantastic vehicle and a much better value than anything that comes from Germany in this specific class of vehicle. I really feel sorry for the poor guy who has done everything he knew should be done, but no one told him to change it or someone told him that changing it would cause the problem.
Select on the multi-information display. I was on a highway driving approximately 60 mph when this occurred without warning. It could be the difference between your Lexus raking in extra miles with little repair costs, or fetching you a better resale value. Superior protection again oxidation, neutralizing acids, inhibiting corrosion, reducing wear and protects against deposits. Turn ignition back off and wait a few seconds.

If this happens, the oil will indeed contain significantly large particles that could accelerate engine wear. Seeking a high mileage oil? Left me stranded on the roadside. After about five seconds the low tire warning will turn off. The vehicle was not repaired. Thats only for 2009+ vehicles with the 0W20 Synthetic from the factory.
Last July I purchased a used 2005 Toyota Avalon with 65K miles. One is the volume control for the alarm, just to the left are two additional buttons. The navigation system is not good. I hope they did not cross thread the male and female threads on the pan or the drain plug bolt. The fuel filter sieves off contaminants from fuel and controls the flow of fuel to the engine. With you hand, push the brake light assembly to the left, as far as it will slide.
I still maintain that it is the oil filter that should determine whether your synthetic oil can last 10,000 miles. I see no reason to change it so soon - I would probably opt for the 60K miles severe even if I did not go off road. Correct me if I'm wrong but most oil filters, if overloaded with contaminants, will allow oil to bypass filtration to avoid overpressure conditions. Appears some dealerships know more about the vehicle then the people that make it. I will have same question soon. That word is courtesy of the marketing department. I have noticed recently that there are now more than a couple of filter manufacturers out there who clearly claim their filters can hold up to 10,000 miles of dirt.
