Check your owners manual. It tells you all of this. If it says you can run the 0W I would recommend it and buy a full synthetic version. Otherwise your fuel economy and performance will suffer slightly.

As a toyota technician use 0w20 toyota blend synthetic. it is a CERTIFIED 10,000 mile service interval and don't forget to rotate your tires at 5,000 miles either. Definitely recommend dealership for the first 40k though. Otherwise an on-going issue with the vehicle is most likely not to be fixed and could cost you.

I totally agree with Matthew J Dutcher. You will need a SYNTHETIC motor oil in a 0W-20 grade. A SYNTHETIC 5W-20 will also work, but Toyota says to change the 5W-20 at 6 month or 5,000 mile intervals, so please be mindful of that. Also, since you have a 3-year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, why NOT go to a dealership for routine check-ups? It is my personal preference to have the dealer catch any issues with anything in my car prior to the warranty expiring. Just another small recommendation: you can use the toyota.com website to download a pdf of scheduled maintenance, recommended oil viscosity and specs along with a lot of other info on your car. You can locate this by going to www.toyota.com, then at the bottom of the page place your cursor over the "for owners" tab, then click on "scheduled maintenance". Then, you can enter your year and model (2010 and Camry) and get a PDF. I am writing this on 8/25/2010 and was able to download a pdf. In the future, you will most likely only be able to look at scheduled maintenance by mileage intervals (30,000 miles, 35,000 miles, etc.). I hope you and your Camry have a long life together, ha ha.

I have a Toyota Camry 2012 what's the proper oil

7 out of 7 people think this is helpful.

Doing oil change at 10k using synthetic oil of course, will make your car break down sooner. The dealers always recommend that because they want to make us keep on buying more and more every time. So far 5k to 6k for synthetic it's perfect and 3 months or 3k for conventional oil.
