Engine oil: What oil for my Toyota?

find right oil for toyota

The right grade of oil is vital to keep your Toyota’s engine working at its best. Your vehicle handbook will confirm the right grade for your car and your region. Alternatively, use this official online tool to identify which oil you should use.

Engine oil isn’t something you want to compromise on. Using the right lubricant keeps your engine running smoothly and preserves the life of its components. In fact, using the wrong grade of oil could be a costly mistake.

That’s especially true for diesels, which are very sensitive to the wrong grade. If you or whoever services your car replaces your diesel engine’s oil with the wrong type of lubricant it can cause the Diesel Particulate Filter to fail. You could be looking at a four-figure bill to put it right.

Engine oil: what the digits mean

There are a lot of numbers, letters and jargon surrounding engine oil, which can make finding the right grade confusing.

Essentially, you need to use oil that is the recommended viscosity. This is the ‘thickness’ of the oil and is usually displayed prominently on the packaging. A high viscosity oil will be more treacle-like in consistency, whereas a low viscosity oil is thinner and more free-flowing. Modern Toyota engines generally use low viscosity oils. They reduce friction within the engine, cut down on wear and tear and contribute to better fuel economy.

The following table displays the recommended oil specification for all current Toyota models and engine types.

TOYOTA MODEL / ENGINE RECOMMENDED ENGINE OIL GRADE
Aygo 0W-16
Yaris 1.0 0W-16
Yaris 1.5 0W-20
Yaris Hybrid 0W-20
Corolla 1.2T 0W-20
Corolla 1.8 Hybrid 0W-16
Corolla 2.0 Hybrid 0W-16
Camry 0W-16
C-HR 1.2T 0W-20
C-HR 1.8 Hybrid 0W-20
RAV4 0W-16
GT86 0W-20
GR Supra 0W-20
Prius 0W-16
Prius Plug-in 0W-16

Engine oil: how a specialist can help

If in doubt, seek help from your local Toyota centre. Our trained technicians and service advisors know Toyota cars inside out, and will be able to advise on the correct oil for your vehicle and maintenance schedule (Proace and Proace Verso). Toyota Genuine Motor Oil has been specifically formulated for use with our engines. You can’t buy better oil for your Toyota.

Whether you replace the oil yourself or ask a Toyota centre to do it for you, a regular oil change at the specified mileage or time is important. Even long-life oils become less effective over time, as the repeated cycles of heating and cooling steadily degrades the oil’s properties.

Your local Toyota centre isn’t the only place where you can buy Toyota Genuine Motor Oil. Head over to our eBay store and you can order oil to be delivered to your home or office. Wherever you buy your Toyota Genuine Motor Oil from, using the right grade is vital to preserve the performance, economy and reliability of your car.

  23. Hi there ..

    Toyota yaris 1.4 d4d with vin number: VNKKC3D300A114765

    66.000km and it has increased oil consumption ( ~500ml/5000km) with normal urban driving. I am very disappointed..

    Which is the possible caution?

    Also which oil do you recommend, please?

    Thank you in advance

      1. Thank you very much for your fast response.

        By your experience, would 0w40 acea c2 help the situation?

        Thank you in advance

        1. Hi Bill,

          Thanks for getting back in touch. Without being able to assess the car ourselves, we can’t make any recommendations to amend this.

          We would however, recommend contacting Toyota in your region who are best placed to help you further.

          Thanks.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We’ve looked into this with our technical team and the following information is listed for your car:

      Engine oil – MO104-GB5 – (5W30 FE)

      Manual transmission oil – Toyota LV 75W GL4

      Thanks.

  24. I’ve used either 0w-30 or 5w-30 in my 2012 Aygo since I got it. That’s what Toyota originally put in it but then in the manual it says to use 0w-20 (also saying 5w-30 is fine but to change to 0w-20 on the next oil change) then here it says 0w-16. Will it be ok to change to the thinner oil after using a thicker grade for 60,000 miles?

    1. 0/20 will be fine, like all cars check the oil level every few weeks ! The 0/16 is the new oil very hard to get at the moment

  25. Hello,
    Does the recommanded oil changes when in hot temperatures like Africa?
    Nb: I’m using a 2001 Yaris with over 300 000 mileage.
    Should I use 5w30?

      1. Hello, could you please recommend the right engine oil For Toyota auris 1.6 d4d 2015, and wanna know how much oil this engine take,?thank you.Fahad

  26. Hi i would like to ask you about the oil grade, spark plugs and oil filter for my toyota yaris hybrid 2012 1.5 L.

    Thank you

  27. Hi , can you explain why my local dealer used 5w30 in my current model hilux when you and the instruction book calls for 0w30
    Thanks

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Without more information we are unable to answer your question. However, our customer relations team will be able to investigate this further for you. As a result, we will email you directly to gain further information to open a case on your behalf.

      Thanks.

      1. Is it possible to make your answer (without disclosing personal details) public? They do the same for my car (Yaris, 1.33 petrol) – they use 5w30, while the site and the booklet says 0w20. I’m sure they know what they’re doing, as when I asked them, they said 0w20 is too thin, but then who is right?

        1. Hi there,

          Thanks for your message. We can’t discuss the details of someones customer relations case. However, if you could please provide us with your reg, we will be able to confirm the correct oil for your car with our team. If you prefer, we won’t make your message public so only we will see the reg.

          Thanks.

        2. Hi there,

          Thanks for sending us your reg. We have checked with our technical team and 0w20 is certainly the recommend oil. Without speaking to the Centre directly we can’t investigate why another oil is used. Would you like to put us in touch with our customer relations team in order to discuss this further?

          Thanks.

  28. May I know what grade of engine oil recommended for my TOYOTA Crown 2004 model with dual vvti engine, please
    Current mileage is about 138000.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Emma,

      Thanks for getting in touch. It is recommended that SAE 0w20 engine oil is the preferred grade to be used, you can find out more about this in the owners manual on page 348.

      Thanks.

      1. Hi. I found it useful to reply here because i have also a Augo 2008 1.0 petrol. I want the oil specifications for my Aygo and not the oil grade. For example: i will buy another oil, not Toyota, so i should know the oil specs so i can buy the right for me. Thanks

        1. Hi,

          0w20 is the oil specifications. This is an industry standard naming convention; it’s not specific to Toyota. You can buy oil from any provider and they will use the same naming convention – 0w20.

          Thanks

  37. Good Day Team,

    Please confirm that I can use a 0w20 engine oil in the following car.

    Yaris SR 1298cc Reg. TJL 600S Vin. VNKKL96390A301034

    Left the (Paris) factory on 28/04/2008. Registered 25/09/2008.

    Current mileage 33,695. Usually run on either 5w30 or more recently 0w40 Mobil 1 synthetic. I’ve been variously ‘advised’ that (1) 0w20 is ‘too thin’, (2) 0w20 ‘will wreck the engine above 2,500 rpm’!! (3) 0w20 is ‘absolutely fine’, and (4) is ‘the best choice possible’.

    A definitive answer would be much appreciated. Thank you.

  38. Hi, we have an auris (FD64 ZHH). Your website states that 0W 20 is the correct oil for our car but the garage have used 0W 30. Are the 2 oils both acceptable?

    1. Hi John,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

    please could you advise on the appropriate engine oil for my Toyota Auris hybrid HF15XHP?

    Also, am I right in thinking that I won’t be charged for engine oil as part of the cost of full service since I am providing mine?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We always recommend the use of approved Toyota Genuine Motor Oil, although another motor oil of matching quality can also be used. There is a selection of recommended grades:

      Oil grade:
      0W-20, 5W-20, 5W-30 and 10W-30:
      API grade SL “Energy-Conserving”, SM “Energy-Conserving” or SN
      “Resource-Conserving”; or ILSAC multigrade engine oil
      15W-40 and 20W-50:
      API grade SL, SM or SN multigrade engine oil

      It may be worth speaking to your local Toyota Centre to ask which grade they use.

      We hope this helps.

      Thanks.

  47. Hi I have got Toyota rav 4 d4d 2.0 diesel 2016
    Reg fn16kuu
    My question is what is the recommended oil and what is the capacity of the engine

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We would advise for you to always replace the oil filter when changing the oil-the capacity is 5.2 litres.

      The engine requires a specific oil to be used for optimum engine requirements and performance. Recommended oil:

      5W-30 1WW/2WW Premium Fuel Economy

      If you use engine oils other than “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil”, you need to confirm that the engine oil meets Longlife-04 specification and the viscosity grade is SAE 0W-40, 0W-30, 5W-40 or 5W-30. Viscosities other than these may damage the engine.

      We hope this helps.

        1. Thank you for this information, we will liaise with our Technical Team and be back to you as soon as possible.

          Thanks.

        2. Hi there,

          The correct recommended oil for this vehicle is MO42-GB5 engine oil (5w30 PFE C2).

          If it is only burning on start up, that could indicate valve guide wear, but it would need investigating by a qualified technician. We would advise for you to contact your local Toyota Centre regarding this.

          We hope this helps, thanks.

  54. Hello again.. 🙂 !I don’t know how to use oil this time… VIN-NMTEA16R90R130966 – BARDAHL 5w30 C2 , EDGE 5w30 C3, SHELL HELIX 5w30 C4?

    1. Hi Tony,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Would you like to know if these oils are correct for your vehicle?

      Thanks.

      1. We are currently liaising with our Technical Team regarding this and will be back to you as soon as we can.

        Thanks.

          1. Hi Tony,

            We would advise either G-DLD1 or API grade CF-4 grade oil, and the recommended velocity is 5W-30. You will need 5.9 litres to drain and refill with the oil filter change.

            We hope this helps.

      Thanks for getting in touch. The service/oil change intervals for this vehicle are either every 12 months or 10000 miles, which ever occurs first. Applicable engine oils are as follows:

      20W-50 AND 15W-40-
      API grade SJ or SL multigrade engine oil
      10W-30 and 5W-30-
      API grade SJ “Energy-Conserving”, SL “Energy-Conserving” or ILSAC multigrade engine oil

      Thanks for getting in touch. We would recommend the following oil:

      Oil grade = API SL ‘Energy-Conserving’, API SM ‘Energy-Conserving’ or API SN ‘Energy-Conserving’.

      Oil viscosity = 0w-20 (preferred), 5W-20, 5W-30 and 10W-30.

      Capacity with oil filter change = approximately 3 litres.

      We hope this helps.

        1. Hi Ezequiel,

          Thanks for getting in touch. We would recommend contacting your local Toyota Centre in your region who will be best placed to advise on this.

  57. Hello! I have a Toyota Yaris 1.4 D4D and I’ve noticed the oil needs a little top up.
    I’ve always used Mobil 1 ESP Formula but now I only have half a litre of Castrol Edge 5W-30 left in the garage from my other car.
    Can I use the Castrol? I’ve read it has ACEA C3 certification and I need the C2 for Toyota.
    Thank you.
    VIN number is VNKKC98360A162543

    1. Hi Flavius,

      Thanks for contacting us. Even though the viscosity is correct (5W-30) the recommended engine oil grade for this engine is C2. Therefore, we would not recommend for you to use engine oil grade C3.

      Hope this helps.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, as this vehicle is a Japanese import, we do not have access to the repair manuals.
      However, iff you could please provide the VIN or Chassis number, our Technical Team could attempt to obtain this information for you.

      Thanks.

  58. Hi Toyota UK,
    What is the correct engine oil for my Yaris (VIN VNKKH96380A221354) and what oil filter is needed?
    Also, how can I find an appropriate air/cabin filter’s part number?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Ahmand,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The correct oil is the following:

      Oil grade = API grade SM and energy-conserving
      Oil viscosity = 0W-20 (recommended)

      Capacity with oil filter change = 3.4 litres

      In regards to the part numbers:

      Oil filter = 04152-40060 or 04152-YZZA7 (service part number)

      Cabin filter = 87139-0D010 (original equipment part) or 87139-YZZ16 (service cabin filter) or 87139-YZZ30 (enhanced service cabin filter)

      However, we would also recommend for you to contact your local Toyota Centre for genuine parts.

      We hope this helps.

      Thanks.

        1. Thank you. We can confirm that the oil is fine to use. However, The Owner’s Manual does advise that the best engine oil choice for good fuel economy and starting in cold weather is 0W-20.

          We hope this helps.

  60. Hello Toyota GB!I have a Toyota Avensis 1.8 VVT-I 2000 , 129HP.Can u tell me what engine oil is right for my car? I dont have the manual,so I looked on the I-net and find that 5W30 is the right thing,but I want an advice from u.When I bought the car,in the service they changed the oil with FUCHS TiTANIUM 10W40 ( the car is 100 000km) but for 4000km the oil was almost gone and I have added 1l more.I heard that these engines have a problem with oil burning,but isnt it too much? Or its just because its not the right oil?

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The correct oil is 5W-30. 10W-40 will not damage the vehicle, but we would not recommend it. As your oil consumption sounds high, we would advise for you to contact your local Toyota Centre in regards to an inspection.

      We hope this helps.

  61. Hello Toyota, I have a Toyota Yaris 1.3 petrol. I’m having issues with the engine oil getting low very often. I’m wondering if my job as a driving instructor, is having impact on the car. I need to top up the oil every 3 days. Can you recommend me what type of engine oil I should use. My mileage is around 88k.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The correct oil is 5W-30 Semi synthetic. We would suggest for you to have the the oil consumption checked by your local Toyota Centre to find out how much is being added against the actual level. In regards to your job as a driving instructor, the job has no impact on the car, however the mileage will clock up quicker which therefore has an effect on wear.

      Hope this helps.

  63. Hi Toyota,

    what is the right engine oil for my car – Avensis 2006, VIN SB1DJ56L40E080844.

    The owners manual recommends SAE 5W-30 as the preferred oil, but the Toyota web site at the link below recommends 0W20.

    I recently took my Toyota in for servicing which includes an oil change and the Toyota dealer in Berkshire used 5W-30.

    What would be the advantage of replacing this with 0W20, if any.

    Should I insist that the oil be changed to OW20?

    Has Toyota’s recommendation for engine oil for this car changed, after the manual was written?

    Look forward to your response and clarification?

    1. Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      As you stated the Owner’s Manual clearly states 5W-30 as the preferred oil, much like the repair manual. There is no need to change the oil.
      Some other oil viscosities can be used, quick explanation of what this means below:
      Oil viscosity ( we have used the 5W-30 is explained here as an example):
      • The 5W in 5W-30 indicates the characteristic of the oil which
      allows cold startability. Oils with a lower value before the W allow
      for easier starting of the engine in cold weather.
      • The 30 in 5W-30 indicates the viscosity characteristic of the oil
      when the oil is at high temperature. An oil with a higher viscosity
      (one with a higher value) may be better suited if the vehicle is
      operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions.
      As for the website suggesting OW20, we are looking into this now as we recommend 5W-30.
      Sorry about any confusion caused.
      Thanks.

      1. The website still says 0W20 AFE (Advanced Fuel economy), for both my Yaris 2004 and Avensis 2005. Up till now, both have been using 5w30 A5. If the website is wrong, it needs to be updated to reflect the correct oil.

        1. Hi Michael,

          Thank you for pointing out this inconsistency and apologies for any confusion caused. We will look into this to ensure that all the information we are giving is accurate and up to date. Furthermore, we can confirm that 5W-30 is the correct oil.

          Thanks.

      2. Hi Toyota, I have a Toyota vitz NCP91, 1NZ-Fe I bought recently and using it in Ghana Africa. I have changed the oil once and I realized the service man used 20w50 instead of 5w30. Its been 2months and I want to change it to the recommended 5w30. Will that be a problem?

      Oil viscosity = 0W-20 (preferred), 5W-30, 5W-20, 10W-30, 15W-40 or 20W-50.

      Capacity with oil filter change = 4.2 litres.

      Hope this helps.

  69. Hello there,
    I recently bought Avensis 2009, 2.2L 180bhp d-cat, reg CV09YRR. The engineer on my first full service put some Quantum Synta-Z oil, 5w30, ACEA A1/B1, A5/B5, and actually showed me that oil as a recommendation from their software for my car. As I don’t have a handbook I didn’t even think about it. Later on I googled that oil and it says that it might not be good for my car’s DPF? Should I change the oil to something else, is it going to hurt my DPF, or is it OK?
    Thank you very much for your help.

    1. Hi Damir,

      Thanks for contacting us.

      We do recommend that you change your oil. W’d suggest you use grade ACEA C2 oil.

      Thanks.

        1. Hi Damir,
          A1 is has a higher PPM sulfur and ash content so will cause damage / block the EGR and DPF and other parts of the engine much faster. The lubrication level is ok, however it will cause running / emission related issues if left.
          So we would recommend that you change this oil as soon as possible.
          Thank.

    1. Hi Oneness,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      Please could you provide us with your reg number or VIN number and we will be able to look into this for you.
      Thanks.

  70. From my understanding oil grades SM are for cars older than 2010 and Grade SL for cars older than 2004.
    My Yaris is registered 2011 and both these are specified.. Should i not be using grade SN is for 2010 onwards?

    1. Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Please could you provide your reg or VIN number so we can look further in to this for you.
      Thanks.

        1. Hi,
          Thanks for getting in touch.
          SM grade should be used. SL is mentioned because that would apply in cold weather countries.
          We hope this helps.
          Thanks.

    1. Hi Santi,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Please could you provide your reg or VIN number so we can look further in to this for you.
      Thanks.

        1. Hi Santi,
          As your vehicle is not UK or European specification we cannot 100% guarantee the accuracy of our advice.
          The engine oil specifications for a General spec Corolla ZRE142 with the 2ZR-FE engine are as follows:
          Oil grade: API SL or SM
          Oil viscosity: 0W-20 or 5W-30 or 10W-30 or 15W-40 or 20W-50
          Taking into consideration the UK climate conditions, we would recommend the 0W-20 or 5W-30 viscosity.
          It might also be a good idea to try and get hold of the Owner’s Manual, as the most accurate information is included in there.
          We hope this helps.
          Thanks.

    Please can you tell me the engine oil grade and capacity
    Plus is it ok to use a suction pump to drain the engine oil through the dipstick. And does the car have a dpf if so what will it cost to have it cleaned.
    That’s all thanks in advance

    1. Hi Muasum,
      For your vehicle, we’d advise the following:
      Oil grade = ACEA C3
      The capacity with oil filter change = 5.2 litres
      We’d advise draining the oil via the oil pan drain plug and the repair manual states:
      Using engine oil other than “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil 5W-30 Premium Fuel Economy for 1WW/2WW engines” or any of the approved engine oils may
      damage the engine. If “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil 5W-30 Premium Fuel Economy for 1WW/2WW engines” or any of the approved engine oils are not available at the time, up to 1 L (1.1 qt., 0.9 Imp.qt.) of ACEA C3 can be used to refill. Only viscosity grades 0W-30, 5W-30, 0W-40, 5W-40 are permitted
      With regards to DPF, your vehicle will have one fitted – it will carry out regeneration periodically to clean any soot accumulate during specific driving conditions. There is no cleaning method that we use, although you can force regeneration using diagnostic.
      Hope this helps.

I am an owner of TOYOTA AURIS,1.6 124HP, i bought it in 2009 and i have run about 143.235km to date.My question is if i want to make a transition in oil change (SAE 5W30) i.e. every 15.000km, to SAE 10W40 and change the oil every 7.500 km is that permissible?By the way, due to the fact that the climate plays a key role,I live in Greece .Thank you for your time

    1. Hi Dimitrios,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      If you provide your VIN we will be able to check for compatible oils, although your Owner’s Manual will have details of these too.
      There will be nothing wrong with changing the oil at lower intervals, however Toyota in your region will provide advise for the servicing intervals that are set.
      Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Kativa,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      Please could you let us know which car you are referring too by sending us either your reg or VIN number.

  88. I should change my oil viscosity when my car mile more than 100,000 mile or not
    By onther way
    The viscosity of the oil depend on how much the mile i drive the car

    1. Hi Alaa,
      Thanks for getting in touch. There is no need to change the viscosity at higher mileages, however the ambient temperature can be a reason to change the viscosity of the oil. For example when using a higher viscosity engine oil in extremely low temperatures, the engine may become difficult to start.
      Your Owner’s Manual will list the various different oils applicable for your engine.
      Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Jo,
      Thanks for getting in touch. The oil information for your Aygo is listed below:
      Oil grade = API grade SL “Energy-Conserving”, API SM “Energy-Conserving” or API SN “Resource-Conserving”
      Oil viscosity = 0W-20 (preferred), 5W-20, 5W-30 and 10W-30:
      Oil capacity with oil filter change = 3.1 litres
      Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Dorothy,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Your vehicle has a DPF, therefore, the oil grade is ACEA C2 and the preferred oil viscosity is 0W-30 however, you can also use 5W-30. The oil capacity with oil filter change is 6.3 litres. Hope this helps.

        1. Hi Gary,

          1. Thanks for providing this Gary.

  90. Hi there,could you please advice what’s recommended oil specification for Celica 1.8 vvti, reg. Y497 RAR, 108k miles? You help will be much appreciated:) thx Piotr

    1. Hi Piotr,
      Thanks for getting in touch. The advised oil grade for this vehicle is API SJ and the advised oil viscosity is 5w-30. The oil capacity with oil filter change is 3.7 litres.
      Hope this helps.

      1. Hi, thank you very much for your response. Is it a minimum requirement and i could use an oil of a higher grade (e.g API SM, ACEA C3) or should i stick to API SJ only?

        1. You’re very welcome Piotr. Using an API AM oil should be fine, just ensure the viscosity is the same as what the Owner’s Manual recommends. Hope this helps.

  91. Hello! Can you tell me what petrol engine oil most suitable for Toyota Auris 1.6 Valvematic with
    VIN SB1ME3JE00E077165 , thanks!

    1. I forgot to ask you what you recommend for:
      – Gskt, Drain Plug
      – Oil Filter Kit
      – Screenwash

      If you could give the reference number for each part would be great,
      Thanks,

      1. Hi Carlos,
        Thanks for getting in touch. With regards to your first question, the engine oil grade for this vehicle is: API Grade SL, SM or SN, and the preferred oil viscosity is: 0W-20.
        The drain plug gasket is a non-reusable part. This means that if the engine oil is replaced, the drain plug gasket needs to be replaced as well.
        As far as the oil filter is concerned, it is a service requirement to change the oil filter every time the engine oil is being replaced.
        The same applies for the screen wash, i.e. it is recommended to top it up during service, or at any other time it is required.
        Unfortunately, we are not able to provide any part number information. For part number information, we’d advise going to your local Toyota Centre or Service Outlet.
        Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Pre,
      Thanks for getting in touch and sorry for the delayed response. The preferred oil viscosity for your vehicle is 5W-30 with the preferred oil grade to be API Grade SJ or SL. Hope this helps.

        1. Not a problem Pre.
          We’d advise using engine oil API Grade SJ or SL.
          However, it is possible for you to use a higher grade oil, e.g. SN or SM.
          Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Fred,

    Could you please tell me what engine oil should I use for my Toyota Yaris 1.33 VVTi, 2010 year.
    VIN VNKKH96360A151336
    Many thanks,

    1. Hi Paul,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We’d advise using API SM oil grade and 0W-20 viscosity. The oil capacity with oil filter change is 3.4 litres. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Lee,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We’d advise the oil grade to be API SJ or API SL and the preferred oil viscosity to be 5W-30, however 10W-30 or 15W-40 or 20W-50 can be used. The oil capacity with oil filter change is 4.2 litres. Hope this helps.

  95. Hi
    2010 Prius with 190,000. I am.using 0w20 genuine Toyota oil. But i seem to get through a Litre every 1200 – 1500 miles.
    Do you think moving to a 5w30 oil is a better option. Also what is the spec required for the 5w30 oil.

    1. Hi Atif,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Please could you provide a reg or VIN number so we can look further in to this for you. Thanks.

    1. Hi Mo,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We’d advise the oil grade to be ACEA B1, API CF-4 or CF and the preferred oil viscosity to be 5W-30 but 10W-30, 15W-40 or 20W-50 can also be used. The oil capacity with oil filter change is 4.3 litres. Hope this helps.

  96. I have enjoyed your informative piece on engine oils for Toyota engines. Thank you.In your view what should I use for Toyota Wish 2010 model?

    1. Thanks Geofree. We have never sold that vehicle in the UK, so do not hold information on it. Please check your owner’s manual for information on oil.

  97. Hi, I have a 2011 hilux hl3 2.5l D4D reg SM60WPF. Is this spec of oil suitable?
    5W/30
    ACEA A5/B5, API SL/CF
    Fully synthetic
    I ask because I’m told ACEA A5/B5 is superior to B1 spec. Also that the spec CF & CF-4 is now obsolete? Perhaps better specs/improvements. Also should one increase the spec, say from 5w to 10w or 30 to 40 as the engine mileage increases? If so what is your recommendations? Thanks Barry

    1. Hi Barry,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We’d advise that you use the engine oil grade and viscosity that is listed in the Owner’s Manual for your vehicle. The owners manual states that the oil grade should be ACEA B1 or API CF-4 or CF and the oil viscosity should be 5W-30. You should confirm what is in your Owner’s Manual and use the listed grade and viscosity. We cannot recommend changing the oil grade and viscosity to something else. Hope this helps.

  98. Can you please advice what engine oil I should use for my Toyota Auris D-4D 1.4 Diesel, Reg Plate: BL13 OUB and which brand is preferable? Thank you.

    1. Hi Bobby,
      Thanks for your comment. We’d advise the oil grade to be ACEA C2 and the oil viscosity to be 0W-30 or 5W-30. The capacity with oil filter change is 3.7 litres. Hope this helps.

      1. Thank you for the reply! In that case should I look for any specific engine oil for start/stop technology or stick to regular 0W-30/5-30 C2?

        1. Hi Bobby,
          We’d recommend that you use the Toyota Genuine Motor Oil product that is available. However, so long as the oil meets the specification, it shouldn’t really make much difference. Thanks.

    1. Also I think I’m not getting to much from the electric mode . If the batteries would need changing what would an estimate price be?

      1. Hi Andrei,
        Thanks for getting in touch. Our technical team are looking in to what oil you should use at the moment, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
        With regards to your battery query, the HV Battery is being self-charged as the vehicle is being driven. The HV battery State of Charge is being monitored and is being kept at an optimum level. Under normal operating conditions the HV Battery will never drop below the predetermined threshold value.
        E.g. if the HV Battery State of Charge is very low, the system will run the engine who will drive one of the electric motors and charge the HV Battery.
        You may not be getting long electric range because the state of charge may not be at its maximum level (at that particular moment in time), which could possibly be the result of driving conditions.
        Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Tjay,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Your vehicle is produced for the North America market and may have different service intervals and oil recommendations to models produced for the UK market. We’d advise that you contact Toyota North America or Toyota USA to confirm the correct oil and service intervals in that market. You can find their contact details here: https://www.toyota.com/support/contact-us. Many thanks.

    1. Hi Lewis,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We can confirm that so long as it meets the following API grade – SL “Energy-Conserving”, SM “Energy-Conserving”, SN “Resource-Conserving”, it meets the requirements.
      ACEA C3 is another European specification that is used, so it is likely that this oil will meet one of the API grades too, however they can use any oil so long as it meets API SL, SPI SM or API SN.
      Hope this helps.

      1. What’s right oil for Toyota Avensis wagon 2004 model CBA-AZT250W-AWPGH, engine 1AZ-FSE?

        And is it right to use 15w40 for this car?? In a region where it gets to 32 degrees Celsius??

        1. Hi George,
          Thanks for getting in touch. The 15W-40 oil would work, for a hot climate you’d want a higher viscosity oil. However 5W-30 oil is a good all rounder.

      We hope this helps.

  113. For a Toyota Avensis 2004 ( LD 04 CBF), with only 55.000 miles on click, which is the correct oil that I should use?

      1. Hi,

      Oil viscosity = 5W-30 (recommended) or 0W-30
      Hope this helps.

  114. What oil is recommended for Auris 1.33 dual vvti (1NR-FE)? My understanding is that it’s 0W20, however I was supplied 5W30 grade.

    which oil is good for my car plz help me

    1. Hi there,
      Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, as this is not a European model we cannot provide this information. We’d advise looking in the Owner’s Manual or contacting a Toyota Centre in the Middle East and asking for the recommended oil grade and viscosity for the engine in these climate conditions. You can contact them here: http://www.toyota.ae/site/enquiry/. Hope this helps.

  116. Hi! I have a Corolla Liftback 1,3 16V Petrol (4E-FE), Made in UK. Could you tell me the right oil for me? 5W40 or 5W30? The temperature (summer) in my country reaches 40 degrees Celsius. Thank you very much! The VIN number is SB164EEB10E019350

    1. Hi Ivanov,
      Thank you for your comment. We would recommend the oil grade to be API SG, SH or multigrade engine oil or ILSAC multigrade engine oil. Given the vehicle is used in hotter climates, the 5W-30 option is not recommended, so 10W-30, 15W-40 or 20W-50 could be used. Hope this helps.

  117. Hi,

    Which is the correct Engine Oil (Grade and Specification) for a 2005 Toyota Corolla Verso T3 2.0 litre D4D diesel (Engine Code beginning – 1CD FTV). I believe it is the 85kW version of the engine as this is the Mark 2 Toyota Corolla Verso the shape that started in 2005 I believe (basically the second model shape NOT the original model shape from 2002).

    Someone has told me 5w30 and someone else told me 10w40.

    Please clarify this and also what API grade should be used too.

    Thanks

    Mohammad

    1. Hi Mohammad,
      Thank you for your comment. Please could you provide us with your Reg number so we can give you further details. Many thanks.

        1. Hi Mohammad,
          We can confirm that the oil grade is ACEA B1 or API CF-4 or CF, and the recommended viscosity is 5W-30. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Sasho,
      Thank you for getting in touch. The preferred viscosity is 0W-30, however, 5W-30 can be used. It is important to note that the oil grade needs to be ACEA C2. Hope this helps.

      1. Could you please tell me which is the right engine oil for the following- yaris verso hn04 ubf
        & avensis nu02 xtm

        1. Hi John,
          Thank you for getting in touch with us. We can confirm that for the Yaris Verso, HN04UBF, the API grade SH Energy-conserving or SJ Energy-conserving, recommended viscosity is 5W-30.
          For the Avensis, NU02XTM, the API grade SH Energy-conserving or SJ Energy-conserving, recommended viscosity is SAE 5W-30.
          Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Bart,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us. These are the Oil Grades and Oil Viscosities (SAE) we’d recommend:
      API grade SL, SM or SN multigrade engine oil
      •15W-40
      API grade SL “Energy-Conserving”, SM “Energy-Conserving”, SN “Resource-Conserving” or ILSAC multigrade engine oil
      •0W-20
      •5W-20
      •5W-30
      •10W-30
      However, the preferred viscosity is SAE 0W-20.
      Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Sam,
      We’ve had a chat with our technical team and it seems your number plate is not recognised. Please could you provide us with your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)?
      You can read more about where to find your VIN here: fal.cn/tTwQ
      Many thanks in advance.

    1. Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We have spoken with our technical team and we will advise when we hear back. Many thanks.

      1. Hi there,
        After speaking with our technical team, we’d advise ACEA C2 oil grade and oil viscosity (SAE), 0W-30, 5W-30. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Anifort,
      Thank you for getting in touch. Please can you verify your VIN number and send us you engine detail code, number and the year of manufacture. Many thanks.

    1. Hi there,
      Thank you for getting in touch with us. The recommended grade is API SN and viscosity is 0W-20. If this is unavailable then 5W-30 can be used, however it is advised to replace the oil with 0W-20 at the next oil change. Hope this helps.

      1. Hi Andy,
        We’d advise using “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” or equivalent, to satisfy the following grade and viscosity. 5W-30 is the recommended viscosity and using ACEA B1, API CF-4 or API CF(You may also use API CE or CD) would be the most appropriate. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Tom,
      Thank you for getting in touch with us. Lots of oils are compatible with this engine: 10W-30, 5W-30, 5W-20, 0W-20. The preferred viscosity is the 0W-20 option however, as it provides optimal levels of fuel efficiency. Hope this helps.

      1. Hi,
        Thank you for your advise. Could you tell me about 0W-30 for the same car (PN59XZS)? Would this be ok and if yes, would it be better then 5w30? The reason I am asking is because it ìs on offer at the moment in my local shop and I am not sure if I should get it or not.
        Thanks again.
        Tom.
