Can I park my truck with slightly used engine oil


Asked by Jan 24, 2014 at 02:03 PM about the 2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 5.7L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Toyota Sequoia 2008 5.7L 4WD which has hit 91000 miles. I just changed oil - fully syntheic 5W30 and has used it for about 1050miles. I plan parking it for ONE YEAR with the tires raised/suspending as I will be away on an assignment in another country. I Wonder if I have to drain the slightly used oil and fill it with fresh oil before parking. Truck will be parked in an enclosed garage.
I welcome your  ideas.

You should be fine, drain and refill it when you come home, as well as the fuel.
