Motor oil significantly affects the service life and reliability of the engine as a whole, so it is very important to fill the engine with good oil and on time, moreover, the car is not under warranty for a long time. The main question remains - which oil is best for the Toyota Camry 40, engine, and also when and how much to fill.
The in-line 4-cylinder engine 2AZ-FE / -FSE / -FXE for the front-wheel drive ACV40 and all-wheel drive model ACV45 was filled with original 5W-30 synthetic oil from the factory. For Camry V40 2.4, oils with a viscosity of 10W-30 or 15W-40 are also suitable.
As in the case of 2AZ, the Camry 2.5 2AR-FE / -FSE / -FXE (ASV40) engine was filled with 5W30 synthetics at the factory. In addition to factory oil, motor oils from the categories SL, SM or SN, ILSAC with a viscosity of 0W-20, 5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30 are allowed. And also according to API classification or ILSAC multigrade greases - 15W-40 or 20W-50.
In the top version with a V-shaped 6-cylinder 3.5-liter 2GR-FE engine (GSV40), the manufacturer initially poured 5W30 oil, which he recommends using in the future.
The manufacturer's recommended interval of 6200-7500 miles leads to the occurrence of rings, so you need to change the oil only after 3100-3700 miles (this frequency will save you more than you spend on a more frequent change).
This is especially true for those who move mainly around the city. At long intervals, even at 5,000 miles, problems with deposits and oil consumption can occur.
How much oil is in the Toyota Camry V40 engine ?! Each motor in this case is individual, therefore the engine size matters.
|2.4 2AZ||2.5 2AR||3.5 2GR|
|without a filter||4.1||-||5.7|
The data are for a complete oil change in the system, for example after major repairs. When changing the oil, less than the amount indicated in the table is poured, since a small amount of oil remains in the pan during the replacement. For example, instead of 4.4 liters, it is possible to pour 3.6-3.7 liters.
Which oil is better to pour is a question with an individual answer. When choosing oil, it is necessary to take into account the mileage of the car and the level of wear of the rubbing parts (for example, the piston group), the driving style and frequency of loads, the climatic zone in which the car is operated and, in some cases, the year of manufacture of the car.
Based on reviews and choices from the owners of Toyota Camry 40, the best oils for 2AZ, 2AR and 2GR engines:
For winter, it is recommended to fill in a less viscous engine oil, for example:
For year-round oils, consider Valvoline Synpower 0W-40 or Mobil 1 NL 0W-40.
The most preferred choice for quality is Petro-Canada, but the choice of the manufacturer is yours.
The above recommendations are also relevant for other Toyota models, which, depending on the production period, were equipped with the same engines as the Camry 40.
