1 Answer

You only use the oil recommended, when it was new

I would guess 5W-30 whatever is in the owners manual
or on the engine somewhere NEVER anything heavier
on a V6 since 1980

Different weight oil, will not fix a mechanical issue or
your engine idle

I don't see an actual question there

Low idle? That is the only issue?

How do you know what issue your having ?

You need to look at scan tool data

Should i replace the oil pump if i have low pressure at idle and ive already replaced sending unit and oil filter.or should i use thicker oil due to engine wear as the car has 141135 miles on it?

if the other vehicle has a good engine why not swap the transmission out of yours with the low oil pressure into that one
Take about 4 hours labor and you will back on your way
Then put a new oil pump in the engine and along with the new transmission that car will be as good as what you will be driving

I have a 05 z71 and lately on cold start up's the oil pressure gauge and info center tell's me low oil pressure for 3-5 seconds then the pressure comes up but not all the way after about 8-10 miles it

Oil gets thicker overtime and the oil filter gets clogged up with debris between changes/ cold environments cause sluggish thicker oil which takes longer warm and to reach its ideal viscosity operating temperature.A change of oil and filter would improve oil pressure reading on startup.

93 camry v6 216,000 miles started buring oil after oil change,,thick white smoke from exhaust..bought car history.. whats the best approach to fixing this problem??

try using thicker oil sounds like it has much engine wear and the thin oil is just slipping by the rings and burning with the fuel.also check your pcv valve if its bad it will allow engine to **** in oil and burn it with combustion.

1 Answer


well when oil is cold its thicker
as the vehicle heats up the oil becomes thinner in the oil pan
in which when the vehicle reaches core temp the oil pump doesnt need to work as hard

heres some other areas to look at
bad oil sending unit
in the pan the oil pick up pump filter needs replacement
oil filter clogged
bad oil sensor
vacume leak
these things need to look for and adjust or replace
the oil pick up pump in pan needs to be serviced by service tech at the dealers this is something a do it yourselfer could not do on own with out proper tools
