How Often to Get 1998 Toyota Camry Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Toyota Camry’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1998 Camry’s oil should be changed according to Toyota’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Camry in the above table. Outside of Toyota-recommended oil change intervals, your Camry may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Toyota if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Toyota Camry. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1998 Toyota Camry Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Toyota Camry engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Camry’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Toyota Camry oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
