How Often to Change 2016 Toyota Corolla Oil

Need more info about 2016 Toyota Corolla oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 2016 Corolla’s oil should be changed according to Toyota’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Toyota Corolla. 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.

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

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2016 Toyota Corolla motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Toyota has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2016 Corolla. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Corolla's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Corolla by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2016 Toyota Corolla Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Toyota Corolla engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Corolla’s engine to fail. 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota Corolla spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
