Service Appointment Tips and Explanations

What happens during an oil change?

First, the technician will check the levels and the condition of your oil. Next, he or she will drain the old oil and replace the oil filter, which removes impurities from oil before it enters your car’s engine. Last, the technician will change the oil. Four simple steps to a healthy engine and a happy car.

Why do I have to get my oil changed?

The practical explanation is that when you get your oil changed at regular intervals, you are saving the time, money, and hassle of dealing with a costly engine problem.

The scientific explanation is that as you drive your car, it actually burns through the oil coating your engine. This is called thermal breakdown, and over time it makes oil a less and less effective lubricant. With less lubricant, there will be more friction between the moving parts of your engine. Fresh oil prevents this friction from wearing down your engine parts and creating a bigger issue than the inconvenience of scheduling a service appointment.

Additionally, motor oil helps keep your engine cool, so you can go for miles and miles without your engine overheating or malfunctioning.

How often will my car need its oil changed?

The right timing for an oil change depends on the model and year of your car, as well as how you drive it. Estimates on the interval of mileage your engine can sustain between oil changes varies, but will usually fall somewhere between 3,000 and 10,000 miles.

Don’t forget: for the first two years or 25,000 miles that you own your new Toyota, oil and filter changes are included with your Toyota Care no cost maintenance plan.

Can I check my oil levels and conditions by myself?

Yes! Follow the following steps for checking your oil with a dipstick:

  1. First, make sure your engine has been turned off for at least ten minutes.
  2. Pop your hood and locate the dipstick.
  3. Pull out the dipstick and wipe it across a lint-free cloth.
  4. Then place the dipstick back in the reservoir and pull it out.
  5. Check for an oily film on the dipstick’s end.

Note the level and color of oil. If the oil level is low, you might need to add more oil. If the oil is a clear golden brown color, your oil is in good shape. If it’s a silty dark brown or black with floating particles, it’s time to bring your car in for service.

Nothing is more essential to your Toyota engine than motor oil. Genuine Toyota motor oil helps ensure your Toyota delivers peak performance, maximum fuel economy, and outstanding reliability. And, best of all, for the first two years, or 25,000 miles that you own your new Toyota, oil and filter changes are included with your Toyota Care no cost maintenance plan. Motor oil reduces friction between the moving parts of your engine to help everything run smoothly with minimal wear. Oil also helps to cool your engine so that it operates dependably, mile after mile. Over time, motor oil breaks down and loses its ability to provide proper lubrication. That can cause engine parts to heat up, and may lead to damage. That’s why it’s important to change the engine oil and filter on a regularly scheduled basis.

Check with your Toyota Service Advisor for the proper schedule for your specific vehicle. Your factory trained and certified Toyota Technicians know exactly which oil and filter is recommended for you. They use only Genuine Toyota motor oil, specifically formulated to the specifications of your Toyota engine. Plus, Genuine Toyota oil filters are engineered to remove dirt, and other impurities from the oil before they can cause excessive wear. Proper maintenance with Genuine Toyota oil and filters will go a long way in helping to protect your investment. And, it will ensure your Toyota continues to perform at its best, lasts longer, and help maintain the resale value of your vehicle. So, when it’s time for an oil change, be sure to contact one of our knowledgeable service representatives, or go online to schedule your next service visit.
