Their  is a huge difference between leaking and using oil. place a large piece of carboard under the car one night and see if their is a lot of oil on the carboard the next moring. If so,  try to look under the car and see if you can tel where the oil is coming from. Have the leak fixed. It might be as simple as loose bolts.   If the engine is consuming oil because it has high mileage the use regular 10w40 or even  20w40 if you are in a warmer climate. If it is using oil you cannot afford to use the high priced synthetics. These are for relitively new cars .As it uses oil just replace it with the regular 20-w40 or 10w40. To slow down consumption use STP or MOTOR HONEY.or some other oil thickening agent on the market made for worn engines.

SOURCE: what type of oil does a 1994 toyota corolla use?

you can use 10w 30 or 5w 30. 5 is going to be better for cold locations and is the more universal of the two and 10 is going to be good as long as you don't go much below freezing.

Need grade / type and weight of oil for 1988 toyota pickup


Any oil with a API and SAE rating are in good standing. As far as weight of the oil, depending on mileage and what part of the world you are in, 10w 30 or 10w 40 will work great.

Since this is actually a Toyota engine, you're fine with 10w 30 or 10w 40 depending on the mileage of the vehicle. 10w 40 for 100,000 or more.
