Toyota recommends changing your 1990 Corolla’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Corolla in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Corolla may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Toyota if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Toyota Corolla. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Toyota Corolla?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Toyota Corolla. Toyota has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1990 Toyota Corolla vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Corolla's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Corolla by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Toyota Corolla

  • Should I check my Toyota Corolla motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Corolla’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 Corolla oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota Corolla exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
