    Default Gear oil for toyota corolla se saloon

    Dear experts i have toyota corolla se saloon 2004 model with manual transmission. i wanted to change the transmission oil. I have searched for the transmission oils but i thought Liqui Moly is the best one. Now i am confused, should i go for it or not. Because they have got API GL-5 and the viscosity is SAE 85w-90 but in the manual the recommended viscosity is 75w-90. What should i do now? Regards.

    Brother,

    Manual says 75/90
    LM has 85/90
    Engine is ~10 years old. So just ignore what manual says now.

    Therefore, using 85/90 will totally be perfect for your car.
    I'll strongly recommend to go for Liqui Moly but should buy the original one from original distributor.

    I know the original LM dealers in Lahore, Islamabad & Faisalabad. But don't know in Quetta. But you have to search for it.
    LM oils last very long and are v. healthy for machinery.

    I recommend you use TOYOTA genuine Gear oil, I once used ZIC gear oil in my Altis and their was silent noise in 3rd gear during first 2-3 minutes drive however as soon as I switched to Genuine Toyota gear oil, gear were must more smoother and no nosier whatsoever.,.

    would you mind sharing the viscosity of each gear oil you used for ZIC and Toyota's?

    because it might not be the noice because of using non-original oil, it may be you poured wrong oil (either more thinner probably) that was causing the noise.

    Hence before choosing oil, we must know that what oil we were using and what we should feed infact.

    Actually brother their is a huge difference in the price of Liqui moly and Toyota oil. Toyota 1 liter is costing Rs. 1100 and Liqui Moly 1 Liter is costing 700 or 800 rupees. Therefore i was asking for liqui Moly. Regards.

    75W-90 Gear oil is synthetic and filled for life. 85W-90 is mineral based gear oil.
    If it is recommended in manual to use 75W-90, you should go for it.

    When we buy a new car, then recommended engine oils are usually Synthetic like 0/30, 5/20, 0/40, etc.
    But we do not use these oils for all the life of engine. Right? Why we slowly move to the more-viscose oils (mineral) with passage of time?

    Similarly, we should consider that this gentleman was using 75/90 oil in his 2004 MODEL COROLLA.
    Now, if he will shift to 85/90, it will be perfectly fine and will bring no harm for gear discs.

    And mostly the gear oils are good upto 40K~50K and after that we have to change them.
    But good companies like LM, PTT, Kixx, guarantees for the longer life of gear oil. Hence we should not consider the Toyota's oil as bench mark all the time.
