  2. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Gonna start doing my own oil changes for my 2013 Toyota Highlander Plus. I do my oil changes every 5000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first. Has anyone had any issues using Penzoil Platinum 0W-20 from Walmart? Was going through some reviews and someone mentioned they had an issues with a...

  3. Sequoia Forum
    My trusty 07 SR5 with 145k recently started consuming a significant amount of oil. Ever since I got her (with 95k miles), she's burned a small amount of oil. I'd be down around a quart at oil change. This thing is a pavement princess but I've hauled a 4500lb camper with it for two summers...
  4. Tundra 2nd Generation (2007-2013)
    Hello, I have a leak on 2007 4.7L 8 cyl 2uz-fe Tundra. Can someone please tell me what this is and why it is leaking. Can I fix it myself or do I need a mechanic? Between the lower drain pan and the transmission oil pan/ housing is this leaky area. It has the letters UD and numbers 0221...
  5. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I located 2 spots where oil is leaking from my engine. The first was fixed by a simple oil pan gasket replacement. The second is where I'm having problems. There is some sort of sensor on the back side of the engine on what appears to be the middle of the block. It's leaking a good amount when...
  6. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I recently bought a 2000 corolla with 150k miles on it for $1,800. The owner never mentioned the oil consumption nor did I notice anything coming out of the tailpipe. A few weeks into owning it, i noticed it would only smoke after coasting downhill in gear. Once I would hit the gas at the bottom...
  7. Avalon 3rd Generation (2005-2012)
    So I just looked at the dipstick for the oil and it looks to be overfilled and has a weird consistency to it. I can't tell if I can smell gas or not but it's definitely odd. I'm very particular about how much I fill it so I'm certain it was at/below the full line and now it's above... So I'm...
  8. RAV4 5th Generation (2019+)
    I have a 2019 Rav4 Limited. That I use for a personal and work vehicle. Work I am a rural mail deliverer. Which involves lots of mileage a year. I am thinking i could easily do over 30000 km a year. Or even in miles 25000 miles possibly. Lots of it is stop and go at rural mail boxes, as well...
  9. General Automotive Discussion
    I've seen all kinds of articles and discussion threads where people discuss how often to have their oil changed, and get into all kinds of detail as to just what brand is best, what filter to use, etc. But if it's so important, why have I seen ZERO articles or discussion threads about the...

    Can somebody tell me what the black piece in the picture is, it seems to be leaking quite abit of oil
  11. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    I've searched common problem threads and have advanced search bout the same topic that's mentioned in the title. There are various reasons why this could be and it's all pretty vague. I'm wondering if any Highlander owners may have experienced this. I noticed that this message in red...
  12. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Who has experienced with engine oils in this motor and seem better results with conventional or full synthetic? 130,000 MI 2008 Highlander, all wheel drive. Info Towing: No Driving: 60/40 highway/City
  13. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hello all. Looking for some thoughts/input on my 2013 I4 2.5L 2AR-FE Camry; it seems to be excessively burning oil. I have always maintained the car through the dealer per the manual with 10k synthetic 0w20 oil/filter changes, though I do think this is a bit too long for my style of driving. The...
  14. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey all. 2007 Corolla CE I have a leak from the transmission at the passenger-side CV axle. For reference, it's the first picture. The second picture is the same except under UV light where I've circled the dyed fluid. I suspect the culprit is a bad oil seal. After looking up parts diagrams...
  15. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi I need to change the oil on my 2009 toyota camry le. I was wondering what oil to use. I always use pennzoil because I heard it was good but now I'm hearing that Mobil1 is a better alternative. It also says to use 0w20 or 5w20 which one should I use. The Camry has 120,000 miles on it. I always...
  16. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    Okay well firstly I must confess, I'm not a mechanic haha. My grandfather was a tough, mean, grumpy old German and worked on jeeps/tanks/idk engines in the US navy and he had a full mechanic's shop and taught me everything I know about vehicles. So I'm not a professional, but I also dont take...

    Hello. I have a 2012 AWD Toyota RAV4 Sport Edition that has over 84,000 miles on it and 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. I have had it for over 2 years now and bought it used with only 62-63,00 miles on it from a reputable Toyota dealer in NYS. It has been a good car thus far. Right after I bought it, I...

    Here's how the engine lubrication system works in your car, and why oil is so important! It all starts down in the oil pan: Oil gets sucked up through the pickup tube and into the oil pump: The oil pump is a gerotor type: Then oil flows through the upper oil pan to get filtered: This...
  19. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    My 2000 Avalon with 186k on it has been burning quite a bit of oil for a while now, approximately 1qt per 500-1k miles. I'm not sure because I do a good percentage of both city and highway driving, but I believe it is using the majority on the highway. I switched to Valvoline Maxlife high...
