How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

oil change on a car


Your Toyota’s engine is meant to last far into the future, but does require some basic maintenance to ensure that it operates smoothly for years to come. A crucial part of this maintenance is getting oil changes. Oil keeps the reciprocating parts of your engine moving smoothly, and the oil that does this job breaks down slowly over periods of time, even when the car is not being driven. Below we’ll provide some answers to common questions, like how often should you change the oil in your Toyota, and give Toyota oil change frequency recommendations. Always check your owner’s manual for details, or contact the service pros here at Morgan City Toyota!

Which Type of Oil Should Be Used for My Toyota?

You should use Genuine Toyota synthetic motor oils on compact and mid-size Toyota vehicles, and Genuine Toyota and mobil 1 synthetic motor oils on full size and sports vehicles. Consult your owner’s manual for the exact type of oil you need. Remember that we can provide you with rotating oil change specials, and that we’re the Home of Oil Changes for Life for our customers.

Recommended Toyota Oil Change Frequency 

The general rule of thumb is to get an oil change for your vehicle every 7,500-10,000 miles. That mileage will shorten if your vehicle is used for any of the following purposes, however:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

While oil changes are a once or twice a year circumstance with most modern vehicles, it’s good practice to check the oil level of your vehicle every month. This will give you many insights on your engine’s health, and should provide you with advanced warning of any issues including leaks.
