You may want to check current recommendations from the manufacturer. I recall Ford retroactively changed the recommendations to the lighter 5W-20 for certain models. I still run 30 weight in my F150 which I tow a trailer with, but I have now switched to a 0W-30 synthetic. Some are afraid of the 0W number, but if you check viscosity. A 30 weight oil runs about 11 cSt at 100 deg. C, which is near operating temperature. However at 40 deg. C, which is hotter than ambient a 5W is over 60 cSt. An ideal 30 weight oil would have 11 cSt at all temperatures including start up. Doesn't exist, although synthetics are improving on it.Oh, and as for the oil, I have been a "5W-30 ONLY" guy for over 20 years and never thought I'd be putting 20 weight oil in any car of mine. Mine calls for 5W30 and I currently run Mobil 1.
:rofl2:you put it in, your car stop working.. you gain knowledge... knowledge not to do that again.... see. :lol:
OP, do a search (top right corner) and there are lots of thread on oil. Dino or synthetic etc etc. :thumbsup:
If your ok with them using Mobil-1 (which I am sure is good oil) then good, but they are selling Toyota oil for around $7.00 a quart to us. I would be willing to bet that they are using Mobil-1 to save money. They should be using the correct oil (Toyota), and not cheaper oil.... I'm just saying.......What the advisor told me was that this particular dealership "uses Mobil-1." I do not know whether that meant that it's the same Mobil-1 that I'd buy somewhere, or whether it's a special version of Mobil-1 with Toyota's specific additives.
I'm getting my 15K service tomorrow morning, so I'll ask specifically about the dealership's oil.
Funny, though, is that the dealer's parts department sells Mobil-1, Toyota OE oil and Royal Purple. It would be reasonable to assume that that means that Toyota oil, even if made by Mobil, is not identical to Mobil-1, although in the world of motor oils, anything is possible.
