It’s no secret that a Toyota oil change is an important part of your vehicle’s care. However, not every driver understands what that entails or why it’s important. We’re diving into all the details at St. Cloud Toyota.

What Does Engine Oil Do?

Oil helps your engine move freely. Without it, the moving parts would create lots of friction, which would wear down your engine and it could overheat. Oil also enhances your vehicle’s performance and can even reduce fuel consumption.

How Often Do I Need an Oil Change?

On average, Toyota vehicles need oil changes every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, that depends on your mileage, your driving habits, the type of oil you use, and more. Your owner’s manual will give you specific guidelines for your vehicle.

What is the Difference Between Conventional and Synthetic Oil?

Conventional oil is the most common oil type, mainly because it’s the most affordable. Synthetic oil, on the other hand, is a man-made lubricant, which is typically recommended for luxury and performance vehicles. While it does cost more to use synthetic oil, it won’t need to be replaced as often.
