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!!

    Never do a flush! Just a drain and fill! Do it more frequent (30K) than regular automobiles. In fact, I would never do a flush. Keeping some of the old stuff keeps everything "intact" and happy. Cheaper anyways. Good luck. FYI, RX300 AWD is 5 quarts of oil exactly and about 3 quarts of transmission fluid but check to make sure. Youtube how to check trans fluid.

Please describe your WHAT TYPE OF OIL DOES LEXUS RX300 USE problem:


Your car calls for 5W-30W or 10W-30W, hot climate then use the 10W-30W, any major brand, synthetic is best but conventional oil is ok if u are cost conscious.
