As a professional mechanic for over 30 years, I get a lot of questions about what kind of oil to use in different vehicles. The most common question I get is “Can I use 5W-30 in my Toyota Corolla?”
The answer is yes, you can use 5W-30 in your Toyota Corolla. In fact, 5W-30 is the recommended oil viscosity for most Toyota models, including the Corolla.
5W-30 oil is a light weight oil that is designed to flow easily in cold weather and maintain its viscosity in hot weather. It is also designed to protect against wear and tear, and to keep your engine clean.
If you are looking for a high quality oil to use in your Toyota Corolla, I would recommend 5W-30.

How much oil does a Toyota Corolla need for an oil change?
A Toyota Corolla needs 4 to 5 quarts of oil for a conventional oil change, or 4.5 to 5 quarts for a synthetic oil change. The oil capacity varies depending on the model year and engine type, so it’s important to consult your owner’s manual or dealer for the specific oil capacity for your car. The Toyota Corolla has a reputation for being a reliable and economical car, and part of that reliability comes from performing regular maintenance, including regular oil changes.
While the interval for oil changes has varied over the years, Toyota currently recommends changing the oil every 5,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first. If you do a lot of stop-and-go driving or short trips, or if you drive in hot or dusty conditions, you may need to change your oil more often.
When changing your oil, it’s important to use the correct type of oil for your car. The type of oil recommended by Toyota is typically listed in your owner’s manual. If you’re not sure what type of oil to use, you can always consult your local Toyota dealer or a qualified mechanic.
In addition to the oil, you’ll also need a new oil filter. The oil filter should be changed at the same time as the oil. Toyota recommends using a genuine Toyota oil filter, which can be purchased at your local Toyota dealer or parts store.
Changing your own oil is a relatively simple task that can save you money, and it’s something that every Toyota Corolla owner should know how to do. Here’s a quick overview of the steps involved in changing your Corolla’s oil:
1. Park your car on a level surface and engage the emergency brake.
2. Place a drip pan or old towel under the drain plug to catch the used oil.
3. Locate the oil drain plug, which is typically located on the bottom of the engine near the oil filter.
4. Use a wrench to loosen the drain plug, and allow the oil to drain into the drip pan.
5. Once the oil has finished draining, replace the drain plug and tighten it securely.
6. Locate the oil filter, which is usually located on the side of the engine.
7. Use a wrench to remove the old oil filter. Be careful not to touch the filter element, as it can be hot.
8. Install the new filter, and tighten it securely.
9. Pour the new oil into the engine, being careful not to overfill it.
10. Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes, then check the oil level and add more if necessary.
11. Dispose of the used oil and filter properly.
What happens if you put too much oil in your car?
