Toyota recommends 5W-30 and if you look closely you should see it printed on the oil filler cap itself. I have been changing my own oil like over 25 years and equally important if you want to keep your Toyota Echo engine in good running condition is hidden under a silver cowl that has like 10mm bolts you need to unfasten this metal cover on order to get a oil filter wrench on the actual oil filter. By the way, hopefully you are replacing it with a genuine Toyota oil filter as they are relatively inexpensive like $3 to $5 and removal counterclockwise is probably the most difficult part of an oil change, besides dumping the dirty oil into a container and cleanup to me is the filthiest part- but hey you saved like at least $10 or more by Doing It Yourself...

Hope the Above Info Helps!

My engin light is on and feels like i am not getting enof power! i amn not sure what is wrong could it be a fule filter? for 2000 toyota echo

a fuel filter can be a cause of power drainage, but it can also be many other things, start by replacing the fuel filter, and if its not that then work your way to your spark plugs and plug wires so on so on.. making sure you change your oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, ignition rotor, plugs, and plug wires is a great idea to tune up and restore some power back

Car was parked for two year, change oils, filter and spark plug but have knocking sound when start. what is the cause?

See if spraying some silicone or penetratng oil on belts,while running, quiets the noise. They may have dryed out from sitting. If it is an engine noise, run vehicle till hot,15 to 20 minutes,then change oil & filter again. You may have moisture or rust built up or a bad bypass valve in oil filter.
