Toyota Camry Oil Change Process

After purchasing a new or used Toyota Camry, it’s essential to stay up to date with a regular maintenance schedule to ensure that your sedan keeps running properly in Marietta. One of the easiest, yet most important services is a Toyota Camry oil change. Whether you choose to bring your vehicle into our Marietta service center for the service or would prefer the DIY route, you need to be familiar with the oil change process.

Toyota Camry Oil Change Intervals

It’s suggested to change the engine oil in your Camry every six months or every 5,000 miles – whichever comes first. If you are using synthetic oil, then it should get changed every year or every 10,000 miles. Remember, the key is consistency, and we want to ensure that your vehicle’s engine will work properly.

How to Change Oil in a Toyota Camry
