    Exclamation Oil change recommendation

    Salam everyone,

    My new Corolla GLi (1.3L) is now approaching its 5000 km first oil change mark. I was wondering which oil brand and grade I should go for?

    I have always used Shell Helix in all my cars. I intend to stick to Shell Helix Ultra for the first oil change as well. However, expert opinion is needed.

    Also can someone please explain the oil grades to me? Eg Shell Helix Ultra is 5W-40 grade. What does that mean?

    Thank you and regards,
    Jayb

    Hands. Heart. Soul. Porsche. ♥

    If you are planning to get the inspection/tuning done from Toyota 3S dealers then you have to use Toyota Motor Oil.
    They wont use any other oil.
    Its good and Im satisfied.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.
