Toyota recommends changing your 2008 Corolla’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Corolla in the above table.

2008 Toyota Corolla Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Toyota Corolla motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Toyota Corolla engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Toyota oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
