Question type: Maintenance & Repair

3 Answers

what does the label say? 10W-30....synthetic if you want to get pricey. personally have trouble trusting synthetic as the amount of crud will keep accumulating that the filter cannot remove from the oil stream...what's it like 8 buck for a filter....get real.

Change your engine oil regularly, using an API certified, grade SJ or better engine oil, either "Energy Conserving" or ILSAC multigrade. 5W30 is the preferred viscosity for all weather protection, but you may use 10W30 if temperatures are expected to stay above 0 degrees Fahrenheit until your next oil change. 10W30 may also be appropriate if your Camry has high mileage or extreme engine wear.

I would suggest AMSOIL, they have a feature to search your car make/model that will help you track down what you need. http://www.amsoil.com/AmsoilLogin/LeadsModalLander.aspx?type=catalog&zo=5242643
