Drain that oil! then flash the engine using the flashing oil! if the problem still persist then that engine must be mixing oil and water through the cylinder head gasket!

I have a lot of white smoke from my 2000 RX 300 when I start it up. More when it's been sitting for a long time, like over night and in the morning, or after work. Is this engine sludge problems??


This is usually caused by worn valve guides. Do you have a lot of mileage? More than 150K? This condition is not a problem for the engine (though it might be embarrasing) as long as the oil doesn't foul the plugs. If you plan to make this car last a lot longer, it may be a good time to rebuild the engine or at least the heads.

I have a AWD 200 Lexus RX 300 and wanted to know


You don't need to change diff oils very often after first initial stage (usually about 25000km) After that about 80000km capacity should be in manual Probably about a quart each but just fill them up till oil starts running out cause the hole where you put the oil in is the level

HOW MANY LITERS OIL NEEDS LEXUS RX300 2001?


You need 5 quarts in the Lexus RX300. Beware, the RX300 has a history of engine sludge problems (just search the internet for Toyota engine sludge). I would recommend Mobil 1 (this is FULL synthetic) and for viscosity I would recommend 5w-30 in the winter and 10w-30 in the summer. Your manual will verify the viscosity that I have mentioned. You must use good engine oil with this vehicle or else you will have an engine sludge problem and this could cost you a new engine. The RX300 is a wonderful vehicle and very reliable, but it requires some care that you must give it or else it will cost you a lot of money and maybe leave you stranded. For instance, change the oil regularly (no more than 4000 mile intervals) and also change the transmission fluid (no more than 60000 mile intervals). Search online for transmission failures in the RX300 - you'll find that the people who did not get a transmission flush were very sorry!!
