Asked by Apr 17, 2017 at 10:15 AM about the 2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 5.7L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a sequoia 2008. The manual suggests 5w-20 but I am advised to use
5w-30 due to thehigh tem in the rea I am using the truck. Truck has 97,800
miles on it.

I checked at most of the lub stations and they do not carry both 5w30 and
5w20. They carry 15w40 and 10w30

I would use the 10W30 oil, since it is so hot. It will not hurt anything.

I would refer to the owner's manual and follow the recommendation.

Lube shops don't want to carry a variety of oils so they talk people into using generic oils.
