    Best Oil for Toyota Camry

     

    Engine oil selection

    2.5 L 4-cylinder (A25A-FKS) engine

    “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” is used in your Toyota vehicle. Use Toyota approved “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” or equivalent to sat- isfy the following grade and viscosity.

    Oil grade: API SN/RC multigrade engine oil

    Recommended viscosity: SAE 0W-16

    SAE 0W-16 is the best choice for good fuel economy and good start- ing in cold weather.

    If SAE 0W-16 is not available, SAE 0W-20 oil may be used. However, it must be replaced with SAE 0W- 16 at the next oil change.

    Oil viscosity (0W-16 is explained here as an example):

    • The 0W in 0W-16 indicates the characteristic of the oil which allows cold startability. Oils with a lower value before the W allow for easier starting of the engine in cold weather.
    • The 16 in 0W-16 indicates the viscosity characteristic of the oil when the oil is at high temperature. An oil with a higher viscosity (one with a higher value) may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions.

    3.5 L V6 (2GR-FKS) engine

    “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” is used in your Toyota vehicle. Use Toyota approved “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” or equivalent to sat- isfy the following grade and viscosity.

    Oil grade: ILSAC GF-5 multigrade engine oil

    Recommended viscosity: SAE 0W-20

    SAE 0W-20 is the best choice for good fuel economy and good start- ing in cold weather.

    If SAE 0W-20 is not available, SAE 5W-20 oil may be used. However, it must be replaced with SAE 0W- 20 at the next oil change.

    Oil viscosity (0W-20 is explained here as an example):

    • The 0W in 0W-20 indicates the characteristic of the oil which allows cold startability. Oils with a lower value before the W allow for easier starting of the engine in cold weather.
    • The 20 in 0W-20 indicates the viscosity characteristic of the oil when the oil is at high temperature. An oil with a higher viscosity (one with a higher value) may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions.
