5/30 is the correct oil to use (for maximum engine efficiency, gas mileage. !0/30 won't 'clog up' your motor, but it will make it more difficult to start in the cold weather. Just think of maple syrup in your fridge, try to pour it, compare to pouring @ room temp, The many oil lubricated engine parts will have difficulty turning, spinning, etc if u had cold thick syrup in the engine. Warm up the syrup, everything moves freely. The 10/30 is just a heavier (thicker if u will) oil, not what u should use in the cold weather. If u have your owners manual, check it out, it will give u the recommended oil weight to use for the temperature of your climate, but I think u will find 5/30 recommended for most situations. Always change your filter when u change the oil, change oil and filter 2x a year or 3k miles whichever comes 1st

2006 Toyota Corolla le - maintenance light on front panel - engine serviced with oil and air filter changed two months ago. All liquids fine, car working well...what might it be??



  • That light is an indicator that the required miles have been drove and it's time to do an oil change. The light should be reset after every oil change as the computer keeps track of the miles to warn you when it's time again should you forget.

  • If you want to turn the light off then follow these steps.


  • Push and hold the trip button and then turn the ignition to on while holding the trip reset button. Keep holding for 10 seconds and the maintenance required light will go offf.

What maintenance should be done on a 2006 Toyota Corolla with 74,000 mil on it--due for a reugular oil change. What about belts and hoses?


The owners manual gives recomended things to look for every 3k-5k miles. Generally though, major services are done at 30k, 60k, and 90k miles and oil and filters are done with an inspection of belts, hoses, tires, brakes, and fluids at the oil changes, with filters changed as needeed at that time. I would recomend changing the brake fluid out, flush the cooling system, and giving it a good look over since it's 5years old, then you'll be good till your 90k service / inspection. Change your oil every 3-4k miles, check your tires once a week when you get gas. Your timing belt may be coming up for replacing also, but look at the manual. You may not need to do that till 100k miles. When it does come time though, I'd change the idlers / bearings and the tentioner while it's apart, that way all the spinning parts will be new. If the water pump is in there also, and it has'nt been done yet, I'd do it too. You don't want a coolant leak 3-6 months later after all the other work was done. Save up now for it and you won't be hit with a shocker bill when you get the work done. Plan on 2 days and about $1200.00 for parts and labor.

OEM probably says 5000 miles, but keeping it in good condition means trying to stay close to 3000 mile changes-it's old, be nice to it!

Have you had the fuel filter changed when it has been serviced? Worth getting it replaced and possibly trying some injector cleaner.
