Your Rav 4 uses 5W-30, and any premium full synthetic oil and a good filter is fine-Castrol, Moble One, Valvoline, Pennzoil, Quaker State, Royal Purple, Amsol...all are very good brands, some a little better than others but you can hardly go wrong with any of them-all are good for 5000 miles + before change is needed, just buy a decent filter like Purelator 'PureOne', Wix, Morotcraft, K+N or Bosch, look at the packages and read filtering capabilities, they are all good filters with anti-drainback valves which helps protect many engine components on startup.

What Is The Best Motor Oil For A 1996 Nissan Quest

AMSOIL 5W-30 Signature Series 100% synthetic motor oil or Mobil 1 5W-30 Extended mileage are probably the best 2 synthetics. Depending on the mileage, you might be better off with using a standard 5W-30 non-synthetic oil and just change it regularly.

What is oil change schedule for 2007 DTS also transmission fluid change schedule

Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M. You should look for and use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM6094M. SAE 5W-30 is best for your vehicle.
The best Brand is 5W-30, Mobile 1 synthetic oil, but you can use Castrol GTX 5W-30, too. It is very important to use only one barand of engine oil.
When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message in the Driver Information Center (DIC) comes on,
means that an oil change service is required for your vehicle.
If the engine oil life system is ever reset accidentally, you must service an oil change for your vehicle within 3,000 miles (5 000 km), or three months wichever comes first, since your last service.
The maintenace tune ups for this car are scheduled at 25K, 50K, 75K, 100K and so on.
Dealer recomend to change the transmission oil and filter at Maintenace II, at 50K, and the air filter too. Use only DEXRON®-VI Automatic Transmission Fluid.
The dealer sugest to flush the radiator every 75K and use 50/50 mixture with distilled water, and use only DEX-COOL. I recommend to flush every 50K.

Cadillac 1989 oil change What is the best type of oil to use on an 1989 Cadillac Sedan De Ville?

Castrol 20w-50 in summer and 10W-40 in winter, is best in my opinion.
It is high detergent, to remove sludge.
The thinner oil, like 5W-30 is only for better mileage, but cause piston and camshaft wear.

What synthetic oil is the best one to get for my 1999 lexus gs 300

AMSOIL or Mobil 1 synthetic oils. Either one. AMSOIL claims to be the best order to meet the standards "all" manufacturers of synthetic oils have to have the minimum oil content mixture to achieve the quality standards.

SJ or SL or ILSAC 5W-30 is the manufacturers recommended engine oil.

Whats the best oil for sebring 2.7 rebuilt motor

Best oil you can use would be any synthetic oil 5W-30. But if your like me and most mechanic, any good 5W-30 brand of oil and filter will do as long as you do the regular service intervals. Every 3,000 miles.
Your going to need 4.7 liters of oil to fill the engine with a oil filter changed. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer anymore questions you may have.
