Toyota Oil Change Intervals

Thanks to persistent advances in oil technology, oil change intervals have gotten longer. Oil is of a much better quality than it used to be, and it lasts longer while protecting better than ever before. In the old days, most cars had an oil change interval between 3,000 and 5,000 miles. Most newer cars recommend an interval two or three times that long. If you’re unsure of how often you should be changing your Toyota’s oil, it’s always a good idea to check your vehicle owner’s manual. Climate and driving habits play a role as well. When in doubt, it’s never a bad idea to change it sooner. If you still have questions, reach out to us. The service experts here at Germain Toyota of Columbus are factory-trained and are more than happy to advise you on maintenance recommendations – and book a service appointment, if you so choose. Plus, since we use the factory-recommended oil and filter, you can be sure that the job will be done correctly.

Common Signs of Engine Oil Problems

It’s important to pay attention to what your car is trying to tell you, and we aren’t just talking about your navigation system! Serious engine problems rarely pop up out of nowhere. In most cases, your car will give you hints and warnings before serious trouble occurs. Next, we’ll explain how to identify these hints before small problems become large ones.

Oil Warning / Low Oil Pressure Light

Oil Warning / Low Oil Pressure Light – In most cases, your Toyota will let you know when there’s a serious oil problem with a dashboard warning light. Your Toyota should have two – one is a low oil warning, and the other is an oil pressure warning. If either of these lights come on when you’re driving, you should pull over as quickly (and safely) as you can and shut off your engine. Engine oil is arguably your car’s most important fluid. Without it, your engine will lack proper lubrication, and the parts inside will wear down quickly due to friction. If you see either light illuminated, call on the factory certified technicians at Germain Toyota of Columbus to inspect your car and find the problem.

Oil Collecting Below Your Vehicle

Oil Collecting Below Your Vehicle – Oil stains in your garage or on your driveway aren’t just unsightly, they’re a sign that your Toyota needs service. The engine in your car could be leaking from any one of a number of locations. Oil pans, valve covers, and drain plugs are common trouble areas for all cars. If your Toyota is leaking oil, it’s a good idea to have the factory-trained technicians at Germain Toyota of Columbus find the source and fix the problem before it gets to be too serious.
