2008 Toyota Corolla Q&A

2008 Toyota Corolla Question: oil change

How often should the oil be changed on a 2008 Toyota Corolla and does it require synthetic oil? -
Answer 1
newer cars go 5000 between changes and synthetic is an option, not a requirement. Roy -
Answer 2
I change my oil and filter every 3000-3500 but as Roy mentioned 5000 miles would be fine. I've used Castrol brand oil since the 80s and find it to be a very good oil. Synthetic oil is not needed just be sure to purchase a quality brand. -
