the million dollard question some like syntec from castrol its not cheap but last longer and the engine turn faster when its cold outside there manly all good use the right grade for the engine as recommended by the manufacture 5w30 grade thank you pierre
Your 2007 RAV4 requires 4.5 quarts SAE 5w20 with filter change. I use Pennzoil and highly recommend it but all major brands are good. Use a quality filter such as Wix, Purolator, or Bosch. Change your oil/filter every 5,000 miles if using conventional oil and every 7,000 miles if using synthetic if you drive normally.
ever had the trans serviced? could need a new filter and fluid change. the fluid breaks down after a while and the filter gets dirty causing the fluid to heat up from the fact it cant flow as well to the cooler
The service duration is affected by many things.. If you are driving in a dusty atmosphere or doing a lot of high RPM but low gear driving, change the oil every 2500kms. if you do mainly highway driving with low rpm but top gear, change the oil every 5000 kms. As a rule, I always replace the oil filter at every oil change even though toyota says you dont have to.
Ceryl, I would use the 20W50 oil only if the car is using oil. A lighter grade is better in most instances as the engine warms up faster - very important - and usually gets better gas mileage. Use a premium synthetic such as Mobil 1, or the Castrol brand. I would use 10W30 oil but it is best to always check your owner's manual for their recommendation.
