Oil Change in Mishawaka, IN

jordan toyota oil change 

The most common thing we hear as drivers is “get your oil changed.” Is it important to get oil changed in the recommended intervals? Absolutely! Over time, the lubricating properties of the oil break down and could turn into engine sludge. Keeping your oil changed regularly reduces friction and improves engine performance by keeping all the metal parts properly lubricated. Jordan Toyota’s Certified Technicians only use genuine Toyota motor oil and genuine Toyota oil filters that are specially formulated to keep your Toyota a Toyota.









Frequently Asked Questions

How do I determine if my vehicle has conventional or synthetic oil?
2009 and older Toyota vehicles came with conventional oil. For 2010 and newer Toyota vehicles, refer to the Specifications section of your vehicle's Owner's Manual for oil type.

What are the oil change intervals using synthetic oil?
• Only Toyota vehicles in which 0w-20 synthetic oil is required (except for the 2TR-FE and 3UR-FBE Engines*) have been approved for extended oil change intervals of 10,000-miles/12-months. (However, you should continue to check the oil level regularly and top off if needed. That will help your engine get the full benefit of synthetic oil.)
• Vehicles in which 0w-20 is an option to 5w-20 mineral oil, (or 5w-30), will continue to require 5,000-mile/6-month oil change intervals, even if 0w-20 oil is used.
• In the case of vehicles with 10,000 mile oil change intervals, the 5,000 mile service interval has not been eliminated. The traditional 5,000 mile maintenance procedures (such as tire rotation) will continue to be required, and the fluid levels (such as brake fluid) will need to be checked and adjusted at this time.
• If the vehicle operation meets the standard criteria for "Special Operating Conditions" such as: driving off-road, on dirt roads, towing a trailer, making repeated short trips under 32˚ F, or extensive idling; the engine oil must be replaced at 5,000 mile intervals, regardless of what type of oil is used.
*The 2TR-FE (4Runner / Tacoma) and the 3UR-FBE (Flex Fuel Tundra / Sequoia) are the exceptions to this new change interval program; these engines have not been approved for the 10,000 mile interval at this time. A 5,000-mile/6-month oil change interval is still required for these vehicles. Also, the Flex Fuel 3UR-FBE requires a 2,500 mile interval when operated on E85.

Can I use any brand of 0W-20 synthetic oil? Genuine Toyota motor oil 0W-20 utilizes a Toyota-specific additive package that will provide the best results for oil performance and fuel economy. However, other 0W-20 synthetic oils can be used as long as they are ILSAC certified, which is found on the oil container label.

My vehicle uses conventional motor oil. If I switch to synthetic motor oil can I extend the oil change intervals?
Toyota does not recommend extending the oil change interval. We recommend continuing to follow your vehicle's Warranty and Maintenance Guide.

What should I do if 0W-20 synthetic oil isn't available?
If SAE 0W-20 synthetic oil is not available, SAE 5W-20 conventional oil may be used. However, it must be replaced with SAE 0W-20 synthetic oil at the next oil change.
