    Dear Thomas.
    I own a Toyota Hilux 1999, 2.4L, 4cyl, all original.
    According information here in this page, the Oil type for this pickup is 5W30 (for this motor) .
    What happen if I go to live in Phoenix, where the climate have higher temperatures?. Should I change to 5W50?

    1. Dan Hoffman says:

      Hello, Leonardo.
      No, 5W50 would be a mistake.
      Your option is 5W-30 and it is perfectly fine for any temperature in case of your engine.
