Hello! i have a 1.6 vvti 3ZZE engine (2005). Today I measure the oil, in the dipckstick, and I saw that was missing a 5 millimeters of oil (measure in the dipstick). I've done 10500 km's since the last visit to the dealer... the car as 135000 km's... Is this normal? Thank's...

Hello! Came back form the official dealer! They said that the oil for the car was the "official one" (Toyota on the label) and they put 10W40... On the car manual says 5W30... Strange... Other thing: the consumption! The mecanic said that the car consume 0.3 litres...

(1.3 liter / 27mm) X 5mm = 0.2407 liter (1/4 quart)

Your oil and filter should be replaced every 8000 kms... Only 0.25 liter of oil consumed in 10500 kms (6520 miles) is very acceptable at your mileage.
It should be 5W-30 instead of 10W-40... How hot are your summers in Portugal?
