When to Change 1986 Toyota Van Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1986 Toyota Van? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1986 Van’s oil should be changed according to Toyota’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Van in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Van may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Toyota recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Toyota Van. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1986 Toyota Van Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Toyota Van? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Toyota Van engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Toyota Van oil at home? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Toyota Van exhaust smoke grayish 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
