  1. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I have a 2009 Matrix XRS (engine 2.4L L-4 DOHC 16v) that I have owned for 3 years. The mileage is about 122,000. It is going through a quart of oil every 1000 miles or so. I have had it checked and I was told that it is a common problem with this engine. One shop advised me to keep an eye...
  2. Sequoia Gens 1&2 (2001-2022)
    I bought this Sequoia used with 99,000 miles specifically for towing a 5000 lb camper. The Toyota manual specifically calls for 0w 20 synthetic oil--even going so far as saying that 5w 20 can be used if necessary but must be switched back to 0w 20 at the next oil change. At my most recent oil...
  3. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hello everyone! I had just changed oil in my 1ZZ from Motul to LiquiMoly MOLYGEN 5W-30 formulated for various non-German vehicles (green stuff). The engine is FAR smoother and quieter. Has no issues with valve clearance or timing though. Cold start ups are also quieter. Has anybody had...
  4. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    I'm working on a 2001 Avalon XLS. About 3vweeks ago I did a huge tune-up on it. My friend gave it to his brother when it had almost 220,000 miles on it. It now has 270,000 miles. This is his first car and he knows 0% about cars. Anyways he didn't keep up with maintenance or anything. His car was...
  5. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I didn't think this engine really burned oil, but apparently the one in my father-in-laws '98 is. He called me saying the oil light was on, and that he added some oil and it went out but is now back on again. I told him it only comes on if it's like 2 quarts or more low (might not be Toyota's...
  6. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Straight to the point. My camry failed excessive engine oil test and service guy sent me a list of service to be recommended. I wonder these should be better to be when engine is out. Dealership said Short Block Engine needs to be replaced and after talking to toyota, they finally got approved...
  7. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Omg, maybe all these oil consuming issue has to do with everybody putting in the wrong type of motor oil, 5w-30 because even in mild climate here in san francisco, 5w-30 burns away at a much lower temperature than 10w30 or 10w40. Car: 1999 corolla. My engine was making some noise which I...
  8. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hey Guys, I am about 7300 miles from my last oil change about a year ago. I was checking my dip stick the other day and while I was looking at it, I got a whiff of what definitely smelled like gasoline. I have a little over 47k miles on it, and barely drive it 10k a year, mostly city some...

  10. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Hi all, This is my first post here. I bought a 1998 corolla which was standing with some dealer for a few months. I changed the engine oil and put all the 5L of Shell Helix HX5 in it. Now searching the forum gave me the information that I need to drain extra oil. Here are my questions: (1)...
