Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I have Auris 1.33 petrol, and always change the Oil myself and buy what is on offer. Just bought "Total 0W20 Ineo First" and noticed that it says designed for particulate filter.  Obviously I don't have such filter, any ideas of this Oil is going to be bad idea?

Should have a list, long or short, printed on the container of the specification the Oil is. Compare that with what spec Toyota list for your car.

The Oil spec that Toyota specify is either API SL, SM, or SN - so this is what you should look for for a petrol or hybrid car.

It's a diesel only Oil

Second picture says ACEA C5. Just for reference, Auris diesel engines mostly had ACEA C2 recommended, as that was the standard when they were made.

As you can see below, you need API SL,SM grade, or SN, which came after 1st gen Auris was made, but should be just fine to use.

There's plenty of API SL/SM Oil on the market anyways.

Thank you all for your help. I think is safer to exchange it with the correct one, as you never know.

Cheers

Sergei, it’s ok buying whatever Oil is on offer……….. as long it meets Toyota specification.  Move away from Toyota spec for your car and you could loose some performance or damage the engine.

Plenty of genuine Toyota 0w-20 motor Oil to SN spec on EBay, plus other brands, Petronas is ok, just check the spec, but quality Oil is not cheap, but neither are engine repairs.

True, point taken. It wasn't big price gap, just me been stupid.
