Oil type


Recommended Posts

Hi I have to Toyota Avensis 2.0 1az-fse engine. I’ve gone in put 0W 40 engine Oil in, I know now that a spec of 5w 30 is required as it states in the manual, which I don’t have.

the motor Oil I have in there is Mobil 1 with these specs


Will it cause my engine any problems running like this, I know the Oil will be slightly thicker at higher temperatures which is what bothers me. Is this anything to worry about?

Car manuals often specify a range of Oil grades that are acceptable. So check to see if that is the case for your car, and then check if 0W/40 is within it. I have a T27 rather than a T25 so I can't help with your car, but if you don't have a manual I'm sure somebody with one will be along very soon.
