1. CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
  1. Warm up the engine, stop the engine and wait 5 minutes. The oil level should be between the dipstick's low and full level marks.
    If the oil level is low, check for leakage and add oil up to the full level mark.

    NOTICE:
    Do not fill engine oil above the full level mark.



2. CHECK ENGINE OIL QUALITY


  1. Check the oil for deterioration, water contamination, discoloring or thinning.
    If the quality is visibly poor, replace the oil.

    HINT:
    1. TOYOTA Genuine Motor Oil is in this vehicle when it is shipped.
    2. Use TOYOTA Genuine Motor Oil or equivalent to satisfy the following grade and viscosity.

    Oil grade:
    G-DLD1 or API CF-4 or API CF (You may also use API CE or CD)

    If using SAE 10W-30 or a higher viscosity engine oil in extremely low temperatures, the engine may become difficult to start. For low temperatures SAE 5W-30 engine oil is recommended.
