Toyota Camry Oil Change Guide

2021 Toyota Camry


If you’re just gotten a Toyota Camry, it’s essential to stay on top of your maintenance schedule. One service everyone in Morgan City knows about is an oil change, but what type of oil does a Toyota Camry take? You can consult a service center like Morgan City Toyota to get the job done or do it yourself with the help of this Toyota Camry oil type guide below!

What Type of Oil Does a Toyota Camry Take?

So, what type of oil does a Toyota Camry take? For the Toyota Camry oil type, you should go with SAE OW-20 Genuine Toyota Synthetic Motor Oil. You can find this around Thibodaux or Houma or with the help of any place that can help you with a Genuine Toyota Oil Change.

Toyota Camry Oil Type: How Often To Change Your Oil

So that’s the Toyota Camry oil type, but how often do you need to change your oil? The official recommendation for a Toyota Camry oil change is every six months or 5,000 miles – whichever comes first. But if you do use synthetic oil, just once a year or every 10,000 miles will probably do the trick. The most important thing is to continue to regularly check and change your oil as you’re using it around Lafayette roads.

How to Change Oil in a Toyota Camry

As we covered above, a Toyota Service department can be of great help when it comes to getting you the right Toyota Camry oil type and changing your oil. But it’s entirely possible to do this yourself! Here’s the process:

Supplies Needed:

  • Oil filter
  • Oil Collection Pan
  • Toyota Camry Oil type in the proper amount (check your owner’s manual)
  • Funnel
  • Rags


  • Drain the oil by placing the oil collection pan under the Camry, removing the plug, and letting it rip!
  • Remove the oil filter first and replace it with a new one.
  • Replace the oil drain plug and unscrew the engine oil cap
  • Add the oil using your funnel. As noted above, use the amount (in quarts) recommended by your owner’s manual. While you’re doing this, watch out for leaks!
  • Check the oil levels on your dipstick.

Once you’re done, you can go ahead and reset the maintenance lights.
