When to Change 2021 Toyota Corolla Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Toyota Corolla? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Your 2021 Corolla’s oil should be changed according to Toyota’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Corolla may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Toyota recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2021 Toyota Corolla motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Toyota has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2021 Toyota Corolla vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Corolla's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Corolla by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2021 Toyota Corolla Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Toyota Corolla motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
