When to Change 2001 Toyota Celica Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Toyota Celica’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Toyota recommends having your 2001 Toyota Celica’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Celica may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Toyota recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Toyota Celica. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2001 Toyota Celica Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Toyota Celica? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Celica’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Toyota oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
