As stated above, it means you need to book an appointment for service within the next 1000 miles.

Hi, this is just a service reminder letting you know that your car needs a service soon, about this time make arrangements to book your car in for its service. I am not sure how to turn this service reminder off, better let the mechanics do it while they carry out the service, after all, thats what it is there for. I hope this helps, cheers.

How often do you change the oil

Depends on many factors. Around 3500 to 5000 miles. If driven in dusty conditions and hard service, more frequently like 3500 miles.

Often depends on temperatures where you drive and style of oil you use. They make better filters for longer distance between changes.

Some people like 2 changes a year regardless of low miles. I would say you are pretty much okay by not going over 5000 miles distance and at least twice a year. Even if you drive 1000 miles a year the detergents and moisture can wear out within a year.

Remember, the people who set the change intervals sell either oil or engines. No engine has ever been hurt by clean oil, but plenty have been ruined by dirty oil. Pull the dipstick out of the engine and check it after 2000 miles. Rub a drop of oil between your thumb and forefinger and if it feels gritty plan on a change in the next 1000 miles.

Service lights

Well, let me just say that if you have gone 10,000 miles without servicing your brand-new Lexus, you are a LOT braver than I would ever be. I certainly do not have the gold available to pay for the possible consequeces of pulling that one off. When was the last time you even checked your engine oil level? I have seen MANY vehicles run completely out of oil between 3000 mile services and completely DESTROY the engines! 10,000 miles is REALLY taking HUGE chances!

You may have 2 separate problems...One for the oil needing service and one for a problem with your AWD system. However, Toyota and Lexus are known for disabling things like AWD, ABS, Traction Control, etc. when the engine computer detects things like low oil pressure or low oil levels. This can cause several warning lamps to all come on at the same time.

GET YOUR VEHICLE SERVICED!!! Hopefully, you will be one of the lucky ones and have not done any serious damage by not getting it serviced when you should have.

Your oil should be changed every 3000 miles (Or every 5000 miles if you are using full-synthetic oil). You should also check the oil level between services AT LEAST every 1000 miles (or more often, if you are having to add oil at 1000 miles). For a properly maintained vehicle, checking the oil level between oil changes SHOULD seem a total waste of time. However, it is the single, MOST IMPORTANT thing you can spend your time on when it comes to getting a lot of miles from your investment. If your engine starts using (burning) oil or if it starts leaking oil, you will not know about it in time to save your engine if you are not in the habit of checking it on a regular basis.

Excessive oil use

the time it takes to use one quart is not the figure I need, how many miles does three weeks represent? 1000 miles per quart is ok, less and you will need new rings in most cases, which of course means an engine overhaul.
