Toyota Highlander Engine Oil Finder

The main features of the Highlander are and will always be a high entry, a good view of the road and large tires suitable for off road use. Toyota also offers drivers four driving modes: normal, eco, sport and EV mode. While the first variants are self-explanatory, the EV mode might not be immediately obvious. In EV mode, the Highlander drives purely electrically without emissions and zero fuel consumption. But this environmentally friendly aspect is not the only feature that for the Highlander to shout about. The car is a real miracle of space.

That the Highlander is an SUV is proven in equal measure by its name and appearance. Inside it is suitable for off-road vehicles. Despite being a hybrid, the car comes with all-wheel drive. Despite the hybrid engine, which usually has less range than a combustion engine, Toyota offers the Highlander as a 7-seater. If all seats are occupied, it is probably better not to drive purely electrically as the battery would be drained quickly with the additional weight.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Toyota Highlander's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Toyota Highlander engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

With seven seats and plenty of interior space, the Highlander is an ideal family car. Thanks to its SUV shape and the hybrid drive, drivers can drive the car into the more untraveled nature without a guilty conscience.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Toyota Highlander? Whether you are topping up your Toyota Highlander oil or doing a full change of your Toyota Highlander's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
