Toyota Camry

After purchasing a new or used Toyota Camry, it’s important to keep up with a regular maintenance schedule to ensure that your sedan continues to run properly in Calhoun. One of the simplest and most important services is a Toyota Camry oil change. Whether you prefer to bring in your vehicle for Toyota service or go the DIY route, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the oil change process.

Toyota Camry Oil Change Intervals

It’s recommended that you change the oil in your Camry every six months or every 5,000 miles — whichever comes first. If you’re using synthetic oil, it needs to be changed every year or every 10,000 miles. Ultimately, the key is consistency to ensure your vehicle’s engine can work properly.

There are two options when it comes to changing the oil in your Camry: you can bring it to the Riverside Toyota service department or you can do it yourself at home in Cartersville. If you choose the DIY route, these are the steps you’ll want to take.
