    Default Recommended oil for Vitz 2001 AT

    Please guys, I need to change soon as it has been quite some time since the last change [which I didn't] and I believe the last change was of Shell or ZIC [The one in yellow] 10-40.

    Mileage is around 130,000 and I think I also should change the gear oil

    Toyota has recommended 5w30 semi or fully synthetic oil for your car
    Agreed

    Toyota ATF / WS Transmission Oil only - at 130000 you shall change the transmission oil filter as well

    Shell Helix is trusted brand of engine Oil.

    Brother Toyota type lV also known as T-IV is used automatic transmition oil (ATF)
    and only used toyota atf in your transmition available for 750 per liter in market

    Where as for engine oil you can used 5w30 or 5w40 of various brands .KIXX, liquimoly,mobil1,shell and caltex.
    I hope this helps

    For vitz, Havoline synthetic is the only and best. I have been running vitz 1500cc on same for more than 30,000kms. Enhances fuel economy and runs 5000km on every change.

    yes because the oil recommendations comes from manufacturer.
    Example. The recommended oil for 1ZR-FE & 2NZ-FE is 5w-30.
    Whereas its 0w-20 for 1KR-FE and 15w-40 for 2C. While all these engines belongs to Toyota.
