Toyota Rav4 Engine Oil Finder

The first RAV4 was presented back in 1994 and was not a typical off-road vehicle even then, but one of the first modern SUVs. The first generation was produced until mid-2000, then the second generation, a much larger RAV4, came onto the market, and in March 2006 the third RAV4 appeared, which was only available as a five-door. The current RAV4 generation is the fifth that has been around since 2019. For the first time, the compact SUV is only available with hybrid and plug-in hybrid drives.

Modern SUVs like the RAV4 haven't been around all that long compared to typical SUVs. The change from off-road vehicle to SUV as an everyday car is amazing and has only been able to assert itself in the last ten to 15 years. So that a rather robust vehicle, such as the typical SUV, is also of interest to people who do not want to drive off-road, the design has been heavily adapted and the vehicles made more comfortable. The RAV4 is equipped with everything you would expect from a modern car, is suitable for long journeys because it is comfortable and, if necessary, can also drive off-road.

The trend towards zero-emission driving is becoming ever stronger. A plug-in hybrid is a good compromise and a good idea, especially for SUVs like the Toyota RAV4, to reduce fuel consumption. If you only drive the RAV4 commuting, you can safely get by with the electric range most of the time – after all, it is 75 kilometers. The battery can then be conveniently charged overnight and if you have longer journeys ahead of you, you have the petrol engine.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Toyota Rav4'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 Rav4 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.

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 Rav4? Whether you are topping up your Toyota Rav4 oil or doing a full change of your Toyota Rav4's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the Toyota Rav4 models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Toyota Rav4.
