Question about 1992 Toyota Previa
What type of engine oil is used for a turbo diesel?
Go to any auto parts store, like an auto zone and tell them what you are driving. They have a data base which will guarantee that you get the exact oil that you need.
I use Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5W-40 , a fully synthetic supreme performance heavy duty diesel engine oil that helps extend engine life while providing long drain capability and potential fuel economy for modern diesel engines operating in severe applications. Mobil Delvac 1 ESP utilizes state-of-the-art technology to deliver exceptional performance in modern low emission engines, including those with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Aftertreatment systems with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF’s) and Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC’s). Therefore we believe it will be a good oil for the high mileage vehicles with the proper care for your vehicles as recommended by your manufacturers' guidelines.

Testimonial: "Quick complete response!"
Need more info as to what engine you have. The older non-epa engines typically used 15w40. The old 2 stroke Detroits used low sulfated ash 40 wt. Most of the newer big diesels use CJ-4 15w40 while most of the Mercedes/VW's use the 5w40 turbo diesel oil.
