What oil is the most appropriate for Toyota?

Toyota automobiles, released after 2010, usually employ synthetic oil while older versions use conventional oil. In order to be sure that you utilize the proper oil, have a look at the manufacturer’s guidelines or turn to a Toyota service center.

For example, Toyota advises to go with the viscosity index of 0W-20 and an oil grade of ILSAC GF-5 multigrade motor oil for its 2017 Corolla. Also, if possible, it’s recommended to apply Toyota Genuine Motor Oil.

How often should oil be changed in new Toyota automobiles?

Usually, new Toyota cars demand oil change after each 10,000 miles are run or once in 12 months. However, always check that information in the owner’s manual as each model may have its peculiarities.

However, even if oil is changed once a year, it’s important to inspect the fluid level, buy new wiper blades plus check tire rotations once in 6 months or after every 5,000 miles.

  1. What???

    What engine oil is recommended for Toyota?

    1. Dan Hoffman says:

      To ensure that your Corolla is running smoothly, we recommend that you use Toyota Genuine Motor Oil with a grade of ILSAC GF-5.

  2. Can I put 10w40 instead of 5w30?

  3. What if I put the wrong oil in my car?

    1. Dan Hoffman says:

      You have to use only the oil with a viscosity specified by your manufacturer. Using the viscosity that is different may be harmful to your engine because the lubricating properties are not suitable.
