Online PDF Lexus 1991 ES250 Maintenance
Your Lexus vehicle has been designed to have fewer maintenance requirements with long service intervals to save both your time and money. However, each regular maintenance as well as day-to-day care is more important than ever before to ensure smooth, trouble-free, safe, and economical driving. It is the owner’s responsibility to make sure that the specified maintenance, including general maintenance services, is performed. Note that both the new vehicle and emission control system warranties specify that proper maintenance and care must be performed. See Owner’s Guide or Warranty Booklet for complete warranty information.
General maintenance items are those day-to-day care practices that are important to your vehicle for proper operation. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the general maintenance items are performed regularly. These checks or inspections can be done either by yourself or your Lexus dealer. The scheduled maintenance items listed in this part are those required in servicing at regular intervals.
However, under severe driving conditions, a separate maintenance schedule that requires more frequent maintenance service should be practiced. It is recommended that any replacement part used for maintenance or for the repair of the emission control system be Lexus supplied.
The owner may elect to use non-Lexus supplied parts for replacement purposes without invalidating the emission control system warranty. However, use of replacement parts which are not of equivalent quality may impair the effectiveness of the emission control system.
You may also elect to have maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control devices and system performed by any automotive repair establishment or individual without invalidating this warranty. See Owner’s Guide or Warranty Booklet for complete warranty information.
Where to go for service?
Lexus technicians are well-trained specialists and are kept up to date with the latest service information through technical bulletins, service tips, and in-dealership training programs. They are well informed about the operation of all the systems on your vehicle.
You can be confident that your Lexus dealer’s service department performs the best job to meet the maintenance requirements of your vehicle. Your copy of the repair order is proof that all required maintenance has been performed for warranty coverage. And if any problems should arise with your vehicle while under warranty, your Lexus dealer will promptly take care of it. Again, be sure to keep a copy of the repair order for any service performed on your Lexus.
What about do-it-yourself maintenance?
Many of the maintenance items are easy to do yourself, if you have a little mechanical ability and a few basic automotive tools. Simple instructions for how to perform them are presented in Section 6.
If you are a skilled do-it-yourself mechanic, the Lexus service manuals are recommended. Please be aware that do-it-yourself maintenance can affect your warranty coverage. See your Owner’s Guide or Warranty Booklet for the details.
