Have you been putting off having your motor oil changed? We know it can seem unnecessary at times, especially with everything else on your plate. It is imperative, however, to the functionality and longevity of your Toyota. Keeping the engine properly lubricated ensures the metallic components do not grind against one another, causing severe damage and potential engine failure. It may seem like a simple service at our service center, but it does so much more for your vehicle than you realize. It is one of the best routine preventative maintenance services you can have completed. At Toyota of Irving, we can efficiently change your old oil at a competitive price with a high-mileage oil change or any service displayed below!
The standard motor oil for decades has been conventional oil. It is derived and refined from petroleum, with little to no additional chemicals. It is the baseline oil in terms of price, as well as benefits for your engine. With this option, you will have to have your oil changed more frequently.
Full-synthetic oil is man-made, a combination of various chemicals intended to impart added benefits to your Toyota’s engine. It has better resistance to thermal degradation, meaning you won’t have to have your oil changed as often. It lasts longer but does come at a higher price point.
Semi-synthetic oil is a mixture or blends of conventional and full-synthetic oils. While it has no more than 30% synthetic oil, this is enough to provide added benefits to your engine. It is a great compromise between the other two options in terms of price, longevity, and benefits.
If you drive a Toyota with a diesel engine, it will require diesel oil. It has a completely different formulation, as it has been optimized for use in a diesel engine to keep it properly lubricated.
