  3. 2011 CT 200h oil consumption problems

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I have a 2011 CT200h and it has been a great car until this year when I found out I am having internal oil consumption. I have had to add oil several times and have found out that this is a very costly issue from a certified technician and a Lexus Dealership. Has anyone else had oil consumption...

  7. How To: Spin-On Oil Filter Conversion (No More Cartridge)

    Lexus CT200h "How-To"/Do-It-Yourself
    New to the forum, but thought I'd share some information for anyone who may be interested. Probably not a modification that everyone is looking to do, but here's a quick write up on how I changed from the factory "cartridge" style oil filter to a "spin-on" type. The full write up can be read...
  8. If I have synthetic oil, can I go 20k without an oil change?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I noticed oil interval is 10k, makes sense for a hybrid. The recommendation is for regular oil I think. Since synthetic oil generally lasts twice as long, does that mean I can go to 15 or 20k interval?? Nal puresyn sae 0w20 synthetic oil GF-5/SN was used. Thanks
  9. Oil question.

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hi everyone. Recently I've purchased a CT200h with ~90000km on board. Right after I bought it, I've changed the engine oil, transmission oil and all the filters. When I bought the car, it had a tag that previously the engine used Toyota 5W30 oil. When I changed it, I went for the Idemitsu Eco...
  10. Is 5k service between oil changes really necessary?

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I have a 2016 sport and am at the 15k mark. Can you guys give me your opinions on the 5k service in between oil changes? It seems that all they do is a visual inspection and top off fluids. My driving is pretty routine with nothing I think puts too much strain on the car. Below is a quick...

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Good morning, I have a 2012 lexus Ct200h with 40,000 miles on it. I'm about to do the oil change myself for once. I was wondering if you would recommend a different type of oil than the one synthetic recommended by the dealer. Thank you, Pedro from Miami

  15. Oil grade how critical

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hello all, I picked up a used 2013 CT200h for a reasonable price from a Subaru dealership. It's got 21K on the odometer. Part of their sales pitch was that they put the car through a 124 pt inspection, detail it, do the needed services and lastly put all new tires on it. Well the tires suck -...

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    been searching for oil filter wrench for a 2014 ct200h, no retailers want to assure me it will fit a 2014. The filter element is the same for the 2011 through 2013. Is it safe to assume the wrench is the same? has anyone with a 2014 purchased a wrench that worked? Am looking at the Astro...
