Helpful Hints for Toyota Owners
most important thing you can do to keep your Toyota running well is to change
the engine oil on schedule.
Replace worn out wiper blades will ensure that
you have a clear view of the road under all conditions.
brakes at regular intervals according to your Toyota's recommended maintenance
Keep an eye on tire pressure - losing just a few pounds of
pressure in your tires can hurt fuel economy and shorten tire life
Read your Toyota Owner's Manual. It will tell you
everything you need to know about your vehicle.
We recommend that tires be rotated every 3,000 to
5,000 miles even if they don't show signs of wear. Tire rotation can often be
done with oil change intervals while the vehicle is off the ground. This can
also be a good time to have your tires rebalanced. It's also a good time to
inspect the tires for any damage, remove stones or debris from the tire treads,
check for uneven wear by checking the tire tread depth and of course, checking
your tire pressure. It is an advantage when all four tires wear together because
as wear reduces a tire's tread depth, it allows all four tires to respond to the
driver's input more quickly, maintains the handling and helps increase the
tire's cornering traction.
Genuine Toyota Air Filters are engineered specifically for your
Toyota to provide exceptional filtering efficiency, improved engine performance,
and noise-dampening capabilities. They trap dirt and contaminants before they
reach your engine, where they can cause wear and reduce performance. Replace
your engine air filter every 30,000 miles or 36 months. If you operate your
Toyota under special operating conditions, we recommend inspection every 15,000
miles or 18 months.
Synthetic Motor Oil
Today's sophisticated engine systems require a
lubricant designed specifically for improved engine performance, increased fuel
efficiency and reduced engine deposits. Many new Toyota models are certified for
a new zero weight synthetic lubrication standard (SAE 0W-20). Our 0W-20 oil is
low-viscosity synthetic oil formulated to provide uniform lubrication and reduce
friction throughout the engine. Lighter than conventional engine oil, 0W-20
evenly and uniformly bathes your engine's moving parts, which means less wear
and tear, better thermal stability and increased engine efficiency.
