I want some information on a Toyota Celica, type T18, year of manufacture 1992, 1.6 L 16-valve engine, type 4A-FE engine. I want to know what type of oil is recommended to use (type, SAE). The car has run so far on oil Castrol Edge Sport 10W-60, but I feel like eating very much oil, I think that's why this oil is not indicated, this oil is quite thin.
The car have 180k miles, and i know that is normal to eat oil.
The car runs very well.
I don't have the user manual. Can someone tell me what it says in the manual? What oil is indicated?

Have something to contribute?

this oil is quite thin.

That quote surprises me. I would have thought 10W60 was too thick for your Engine as it's more a "Track Day" viscosity. Are the valve stem seals OK?

A semi synthetic such as 10W40 Magnatec ought to be fine in a 20 year old car, and save you some cash too.
