Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Motor oil is imperative in the proper operation of your Toyota’s engine, if the levels are low or the oil becomes old, the engine no longer gets proper lubrication. Old motor oil will eventually become contaminated with carbon, particles of metal, water vapor, and other components from the combustion process. The oil filter traps those contaminants, but it needs to be replaced regularly to ensure debris won’t build up within the engine. Regular oil changes will keep the necessary parts of an engine lubricated when friction between moving parts in the engine produces heat.

Synthetic or Conventional?

It is recommended that you use Genuine Toyota Synthetic Motor Oil or Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil in your Toyota. Synthetic oil outperforms conventional in many ways, including:

  • Protection against oil breakdown, providing a cleaner running engine and increased engine life.
  • Synthetic oil is cleaner and has fewer impurities, increasing protection against varnishing and deposits.
  • Synthetic oil provides superior lubrication, which reduces engine wear across the operating temperature range while optimizing fuel economy.
  • The uniform molecules in synthetic oil reduce friction, oil loss due to evaporation, and burn-off.
  • Synthetic oil can have optional additives which would boost protection and can clean your engine.
  • Synthetic oil does not thicken in the cold or thin in the heat.
