After finding and purchasing the Toyota Camry configuration best-suited for you, it’s essential to keep up with a routine maintenance schedule so your sedan continues performing at its best. One of the easiest and most important services is a Toyota Camry oil change. Whether you prefer to bring in your vehicle for the Toyota service or go the DIY route, we can help you familiarize yourself with the oil change process.

Toyota Camry Oil Change Intervals

It’s recommended to have a Toyota Camry oil change every six months or 5,000 miles – whichever comes first. If you are using synthetic oil, then it needs to be changed every year or 10,000 miles. Consistency is necessary for making sure your vehicle’s engine is running properly and safely.
