2012 toyota corolla oil

My auto service facility mistakenly replaced my 2012 Toyota Corolla's oil with 20W-40. The manufacturer recommends 0W-20. Can I leave the oil in the car, or should it be replaced?

If they messed it up you can take it back to them and make them drain it and fill it with the correct oil. If you live in cold weather you might experience hard starts when the car it's cold and longer warm up time. Other than that It shouldn't affect anything, it's just thicker oil.

Hello Everyone, I have a 1995 toyota corolla, I am just curious I was told that I need to put 20w/50 on my car when i do oil change, I dont know whether this is good for my car, so if you guys think it is...


20w/50 is good for your car especially if it has a few miles on the clock. It is the viscosity rating for the oil and is relevant in ambient temperature areas when a thinner oil 10w/20 is required for freezing or higher oil 30w/50 for high temperatures . What is relevant is if you have a cat converter The letters after the viscosity rating They will be SC--Sd -SA and so on and relate to the suitability of the oil when used in an engine with a cat converter or with close tolerances and special metals used in the engine construction. . The details are normally on the bottle label and will refer to specific makes of cars . You could even run diesel oil 20w/ 50 in you engine and it will clean out all the sludge because of the heavier detergent additive . It only means replacing the oil filter every 5000miles as it filters out the sludge.

My odometer reading changes, it was 87,900 when i bought it. Last week it was 99,900 and today it is 88,900...What is going on? I have a 2009 toyota corolla that I bought in June 2012


There is a reading on the Lower Right that indicates if it is Km or MI, It sounds like your Instrument Cluster is going bad or someone made a mistake with the Mileage on the Oil Change Sticker.

Pay close attention for the next few days and see what happens....

Frequency to changing transmission fluid on 2003 Corolla


I'm not sure about Toyota's specific recommendation but when I ran my service station, we changed trans fluid at the 50,000 to 60,000 mile range. This covered most manufacturer's requirements at the time. Hope this helps.

1992 toyota corolla starter replacement


If you like doing your own repairs, I'd like to recommend having a Haynes service manual on hand; it will give you all the info you need to do home-based repairs:
'92 Toyota Corolla manual
We have a manual for each of our vehicles and even when a job is destined for a workshop, you can get a rough idea of how much labor it entails and therefore how much it should cost.

It means you need to get your oil changed, or they didn't reset it after your last oil change.
