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..
1) In the glove box is supposed to be a book listing the owner;'s manual listing all the capacities, among other things.
However, if you have none, perhaps it was a police car, which would explain why there was none.
2) The capacity would have been 5 quarts, which would have included the oil in the oil filter, which you would also change.
God bless your efforts.
Yes. 10-w30 will act like a 10 weight oil when cold and a 30 weight oil when hot. 10-w30 will act like ten weight when cold, but like (thicker) 40 weight oil when hot. Your profile only says Cadillac and doesn't say model or year, but most cars since the early- mid 80's use 5-w30. Always use the oil weight recommended in your owners manual. If you are unsure call the dealer and they will tell you what is right for your car.
I personally prefer MOBIL1 brand ..You can decide as per your wish..
SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
There are many grades of oil weights whichever you want to call it. Heres how it works
Oils main job is to keep the engine clean, lubed, running cool ect. The
grade usually 5w20 5w30 or 10w30 ect. Theres many of them as well which
can be consfusing at times. Oil weight is measure by cold and hot . For ex: 5w30 The 5 weight is when the oil is cold and 30 is the weight when its hot. The reason being is the the less the weight when its cold the easier the oil
can get to the top of the engine and lube it to prevent cold engine
damage. Once its heated up its a 30 weight and is thick enough to
protect your engine.( most engine damage is caused when the engine is
cold )You should use the proper grade that your engine calls for. Being
toyota its probably 5 or 10w 30.If you live up north i would recommenda 5w30
weight.You can easily find out which grade you should use by your
owners manual or under the hood on the oil cap. However there are synthetic oils as well. Synthetic oils have man made additives to help the engine run cooler, the oil
is naturally slicker to help it move around easier and boost
performance of the engine resulting in better mpgas well. They have
alot of additives to prevent engine wear ect. One good thing about a
synthetic oil is you can go longer on the oil change. Instead of the normal 3,000 miles oil
change you can go 4 or 5 k. Theres also synthetic blends. Which are
good too but youll have to read about it more to decide for yourself
what you think you need.
Synthetic oils are better for someone who travels alot or puts extreme
conditions on an engine such as idling for long periods of time stop
and go traffic its really good for anything to be honest.. I would recommend
using synthetic if you decide to keep the car for a while. It has many
Not matter of what best, but what recommended by the manufacture. if you intend on switching oils make sure they are compatible....owners manual for the weight eg 15W40, but then you have the option of synthetic, blended or regular oil....but once again, go with manufactures recommendations, and it you are super unsure, contact the jaguar dealer and ask them what types of oil you can put it
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.
