If you use a Toyota 4K engine, most manufacturers both engine and oil companies recommend a 20W-50 GRADE motor oil. We recommend Castrol. However, Castrol is kinda expensive. Try Petron Philippines products that can be purchased at their gasoline station shops. Castrol ranges from 800-850 (4-liters) while Petron oil products ranges from 490-550 only (4 liters). They both share the same addtives for 20W-50 oil grade.

Can I put 5-20 synthetic oil in a 1997 Toyota car


Provided you use the correct grade of oil as stipulated by Toyota for your engine(you have NOT identified your model and engine)(check your owners manual) and provided you use the formulation suitable for Toyota engines you will be fine using the correct grade fully synthetic oil. There are sometimes 2 or 3 different formulations in exactly the same grade for some oil brands so make sure you select the correct one.
Some oil companies offer oil selector programs for customer use on their web sites so if unsure use these systems to ensure you are using the correct oil..

On the Oil cap of the 6 cyl. engine, it says 5-40 SH II. What does the SH II stand for and what would be the recommended oil weight for an engine of that age with 124,500 miles on it. Is any particular...


Normally this would be a grade of oil but I don't recall them using anything that thin in Camry's in the US. That maybe an Asian type of oil. In most cases in the US they used a 5W20 grade of oil. If you picked this vehicle up in Asia somewhere I do not recommend adding oil to it until you do a complete oil change so you don't mix them.

Is the Denso W16 EXR-U plug recommended for Toyota 7K-E engine? Appreciate your assistance.


2-4K`s runs on em, but im pretty sure the 5-7K (E or U indicates dishtop piston/head AND plugs;) use to use a "warmer" plug, because Toyota switched em from points to electronic pickup/dissy/coil.

1997 Toyota Camry gearshift problems


It seems like to much of a coincidence that it started after you changed the trans oil. You, or someone may have used the wrong oil. Modern automatics are very sensitive to the exact factory recommended blend. Dump the oil and go to toyota for the recommended lube and start over. Be sure the trans is filled correctly...only up to the hot mark if the trans is hot, not just the engine.
