How to Change Oil: Toyota Camry 

Conducting your Toyota Camry oil change in your own Provo driveway is totally possible, and we are here to help guide you. See below for the essential items and instructions when it comes to your Toyota Camry oil change.

How to Change Oil Toyota Camry Gear: Several rags, a new oil filter, a funnel, an oil collection tray, and fresh conventional or synthetic oil. Refer to your owner’s manual to find out how much oil you’ll need and what type you should be using.

How to Change Oil Toyota Camry Instructions:

  1. First, place the oil collection tray underneath the vehicle.
  2. Locate and remove the oil plug, double-checking it’s draining into the tray.
  3. Allow the oil to drain completely. 
  4. Take out the used oil filter and install the new one.
  5. Put the oil drain plug back in.
  6. Locate the engine oil cap under the hood, and set it aside. If you can’t find it easily, a diagram in your owner’s manual will point it out. 
  7. Using a funnel, slowly pour the proper amount of oil into your Camry.
  8. As it fills, double-check the drain plug to make sure it is not leaking.
  9. Be sure not to add too much oil. Pour slowly and deliberately to avoid over-pouring. 
  10. Once you’ve added the proper amount of oil, check the oil level with the dipstick. Take it out, wipe it clean, and reinsert it to take a new measurement. 
  11. If you notice your maintenance light is still illuminated after you’ve successfully conducted your Toyota Camry oil change, reset the system.

How to Change Oil: Toyota Camry Intervals

Generally, it is regarded that the Toyota Camry can go 5,000 miles between oil changes. But, if you have a newer model year and/or your Lehi Toyota Camry takes synthetic oil, your interval range may be up to every 10,000 miles or every 12 months, whichever comes first. It is important to note that even if you don’t drive much you should still conduct a Toyota Camry oil change at least once a year as engine oil does break down over time.
