2007 Lexus ES 350 engine oil capacity

The 2007 Lexus ES 350’s 3.5-liter
V6 engine
has an oil capacity of 6.4 quarts or about 6 liters
When you’re looking over your 2007 Lexus ES 350’s engine specs, the “3.5 liters” might seem like your oil capacity at first glance, but this measurement is actually referring to your engine displacement, which is the total volume all your engine’s cylinders take up.

What kind of oil does a 2007 Lexus ES 350 need?

Knowing your ES 350’s oil capacity is one thing—but knowing what kind of engine oil it needs is another—and it’s important to get it right, because using an incompatible engine oil in your vehicle can cause some serious and expensive damage.
The 2007 Lexus ES 350 uses 5W-30 engine oil. The numbers here give you information about your oil’s viscosity or thickness—the “5” refers to its viscosity at colder temperatures before engine startup, and the “30” refers to its viscosity at normal engine operating temperatures. Choosing the correct engine oil viscosity helps ensure the oil is able to circulate through its system the way it needs to.
Synthetic oil is okay to use, too, and it tends to perform better for longer intervals than conventional oil—as long as you choose the right viscosity grade.
Lastly, whatever engine oil you choose, be sure to verify it has an API certification seal, which confirms it met the necessary quality standards.

How often to change oil on a 2007 Lexus ES 350

How often you’ll need to
change the motor oil
on your 2007 Lexus ES 350 will depend on a few different factors, including:
  • Your oil type
  • Your engine’s current condition
  • Road and environmental conditions
  • Your driving habits
Generally speaking, when using conventional oil, it’s recommended you change it every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. However, if you’re using synthetic oil, you may be able to drive as far as 7,500 to 10,000 miles before needing an oil change.
But these ranges can still vary. If you were driving under more taxing driving conditions, such as in dusty environments or in frequent stop-and-go traffic, you might need to change your engine oil sooner than you’d otherwise have to.
That’s why it’s important to check the condition of your engine oil regularly. If it’s past time for an oil change, here are some signs you might notice:
  • Black or brown engine oil (as opposed to a translucent light brown)
  • Engine oil has a
    grainy texture
    , signifying excess debris buildup—which can cause wear and tear on your engine
  • Burning or oil scents coming from the engine
  • Oil level is too low
  • Check engine, low oil pressure, or other related indicator lights have turned on
  • Rough-running engine
  • Worsened performance
  • Declining fuel economy

How to change your oil and oil filter

When you decide it’s time to switch out your ES 350’s engine oil, the first thing you’ll need to do is gather all your necessary supplies. Those will likely include:
  • Socket wrench
  • Oil filter wrench
  • New oil filter
  • Fresh engine oil
  • New washer for your drain bolt
  • Oil drain pan
  • Funnel
  • Gloves
  • Towel(s) for cleanup
  • Proper container to recycle your used oil
Once you have everything you need, you can get started by letting your engine run a few minutes, which will heat up the oil and make it easier to drain. After shutting the engine off, these are the general steps that follow in an oil change:
  • Lift the hood on your ES 350 and unscrew the oil filler cap
  • Underneath your vehicle, remove the oil drain bolt and washer, allowing the used engine oil to empty into the drain pan
  • Remove the old oil filter and replace it with the new one
  • After the oil has finished draining, replace the oil drain bolt using a new washer
  • Back at the hood of your car, add fresh engine oil to the proper fill level
  • Replace the oil filler cap
Give yourself a pat on the back once you’ve made it this far—you’re almost done! Next, it’s time for a quality assurance check:
  • Let your engine run for a few minutes again to allow the engine oil to circulate
  • In the meantime, check the status of any indicator lights that were on and look around for any leaks
  • After a few minutes, turn the engine off again and allow it to cool
  • Check your oil level one last time with your dipstick, topping it off if necessary
Finally, remember that used engine oil is a hazardous material—so be sure to recycle it in a sealed container at the proper facility.
