    Default Engine Oil Suggestion for Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8 2007

    I have recently bought a corolla altis 1.8 2007 model 85K driven. Suggest me good engine oil for it and price with oem oil filter. I want engine oil which has atleast 5k kms drain interval. I have been using ZIC A in mehran and its performance is good with 3k drain interval. I have recently bought car what things should i change to have a trouble free car. I am a university student and i don't wish to say hello to ustad ji every sunday.

    use any oil with the latest api ratings, your car is not much driven you can use fully synthetic oil, mobil 1 5W-50 is best all year round, with a said drain interval of 10000km, though i wouldn't stretch it that far, 7000km is more realistic, otherwise liqui moly is also good if you want best of best,

    if you can find original zic A 10w-40 then its also a good oil keep on using it, drain after max 5000km

    as you just got the car ill reccomand you to take it to toyota 3s and get a full checkup done top to bottom, i am not saying to get it repaired from them if there are any problems as they might be expensive for you but you'll know the exact state of car, then you see for yourself what problems are there and of what priority and if you can get it preferably done from the dealership, after that just do regular maintainece and you would never see a ustaadji again

    do you have past service history? if not then just for a idea things that would probably need to be done are oil oil filters air filter cabin filter, check condition of spark plugs replace if necessary, check brake pads etc, check suspension bushes boots etc its good to have a thourgh checkup from toyota

    Got the following things done:
    Spark Plugs IK20
    Air Filter
    Liqui Moly 5W40 Full Synthetic
    Toyota Coolant Red Coloured
    Toyota OEM oil filter
    Brake Pads
    Liqui Moly Manual Transmission Gear Oil
    Everything checked and scanned car is running smooth and good, starts on half self now. Everything is good now, she only needs new tyres currently has Bridgestone Potenza which have got bit hard and have done about 45k kms. Oil drain interval first time would be 6K kms as the oil filters here can't work till 10k kms. Oil states a drain interval of 15k kms but on safer side 6-7k kms is better with oem oil filter.

    Great you got all the right work done
    10-15k is for car with bigger oil sumps and oil monitoring systems
    Just as Mobil 1 states 15000mile I believe drain interval but that's in Porsches
    A 4 pot would be dead by then

    Good choice of oil though home many litres did you put in?
    Liqui moly comes in 4 litre packaging
    The 1zz-fe takes slightly more than 4 litres around 4.1-4.15

    Yes 1ZZ-FE takes about 4.3Ltrs of oil, bit odd amount Some people put in 4L and its okaish for them but its actually 300ML below the level. I couldn't find Mobil 1 so used Liqui Moly heard positive reviews from some fellows. My drive is not too much but i go to islamabad twice a month and avg monthly drive is about 2200KM that too on highway and motorway. It gives me 10-11km/l in city with ac in Lahore and Islamabad, and on motorway it gives 13-14km/l with ac and i dont drive above 120km/h, so overall its good for 1.8L car.

    good!, mine is 2006 altis auto, it does around 8-9 in stop start traffic and 14-15km/l at 130-140 and 17km/l if 100-110, thats with liqui moly 10W-40 plan to upgrade to mobil 1 5W-50 at next oil change
    your milage is good mines a little better at highways because of auto and low rpm , 2800rpm at 120

    8-9 with ac and auto is good bro, i have seen altis of some people 6-7 auto and 7-9 manual. If we do regular oil changes air filter oil filter change and service the car and maintain it properly car would surely give good mileage, i also had Civic 2008 1.8 sold in 2010 it used to give me 12-13 in city whereas my friends didn't believe me and there cars used to give 8-9, its just about how you maintain you car. How much is your driven?

    wow 12-13 in civic thats remarkable, we had 2011 oriel prismatic for a month didn't know past history but it was brand new at the time never got above 6.5 in city, mine is 56000 driven in black in maintained like a queen, every maintainene done before time especially since its driven hardly 20km in a month, annual milage if there are out of city trips is 2000km
    i also have 2010 altis cruisentronic sr, and personally i like driving this one, it seems to have more torque and response plus power to weight ratio is better, and the hydraulic steering is much more responsive than electric steering, though the new one has better grip on motorway is bigger and more fuel efficient and has better initial tip in on the throttle

    i especially like the Ac and the extra big and wide seats of this model they have better thigh support plus visibility is great, what tyres do you plan to upgrade as you are not happy with bridgestone potenzas? i have yoko advan db 195/65 and they are awesome really quite and really god grip especially breaking and no wheelspin on acceleration good start, however at next change i think 195/55 r15 would be better as currently it feels a bit high

    if you have no problem with height then ill recommend 195/65 r15 in yoko advan or continental cc5 both are best, for low profile this size comes in bridgestone i think but they wont be as comfortable as above, 195/60 r15 would also be a good all round size, whatever tyre you go for make sure its freshly manufactured !

    recommend yoko or continental your choice, if michillen is energy saver xm2 then don't, i have them on 2011 gli very avg tyre, no good for a spirited driver, plus they hardly increased the fuel avg for me
