1998 Lexus GS300 ProblemsExcess Engine Oil Consumption
Sludge can build up in the engine because Lexus did not recommend frequent enough oil changes. Lexus will sometimes offer a discount on cleaning the engine if necessary. Owners who changed their oil every 3,000 miles did not experience these problems. This sludge build up can lead to excessive oil consumption.
All wheel drive models may develop a creaking type noise from the front suspension when driving over uneven road surfaces. Our technicians tell us revised front sway bar bushings are available which may correct this concern.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an EVAP system fault. These faults are commonly EVAP canister or gas cap related. Our technicians recommend diagnosing the stored fault codes before replacing any components.
