1st find out what Toyota specs are , but in general , no , do not use any grade oil other the specified .
Mixng the oil grades id just wrng and will destroy your $5.000 engine over a few dollar saving...
DO NOT CHANGE THE GRADE OF OIL , USE ONLY THE RECOMENDED GRADE... THE BRAND : CASTROL GTX ONLY
most other oils are recycled garbage...
Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.
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..
You can use a 10w-40 grade premium oil or synthetic blend oil
a fully synthetic in 5w-30 grade which is better but more expensive.
When selecting the oils in either grade make sure the one you choose is approved for Ford vehicles by checking the label details. Oil companies manufacture 2 or 3 different formulations of oils in the same grades and the label (usually the back label on the pack) will indicate that the oil is formulated for the engines of specific car manufacturers.
depending on the ambient temperature of where you are that would be a good viscosity for low temperatures. When it gets hot in the area then change up to a 30w-50 viscosity. Make sure that you are using diesel grade oil as there are more additives in it than what is in petrol engine oil
You need compressor oil which does not have detergents. Don't use thin motor oil it may lessen the life of the compressor. I don't think a grade is generally specified although its around a 20 grade
here are some examples Compressor Oil
using a high grade full synthetic is the best.
the oil grade which is 10w30 is for average driving conditions.
for winter,5w30 and 10w40 for summer is also recommended by alot of car manufacturers.The oil filler cap will tell you the oil grade.
