Oil Service

Recommended Posts

You can always pick up the standard OEM Toyota one from the dealer...you have the same oil filter as MKIV the Supra TT...so just pick up a oil filter for that. If you want something like a Power Enterprise or TRD Japan then check out GazWalker :).

I think if you have a standard stock car with no up-grades than the standard oil filter from Toyota is best. Any up-rated mods may require a better quality performance filter. I've got one from the local Toyota dealer (be it for the Supra TT for my Aristo Mk2) but if you want mail order you could try www.toyotalexusspecialists.co.uk based in London.

Gramps is right...although even with mods a standard OEM Oil filter is perfectly fine :). The link Gramps posted I'd definitely recommend :).

Anything but chip fat oil !! If you are draining the old oil out totally first, then there is no fear of mixing, so any quality high performance engine oil should be OK for everyday use in normal temperatures. Obviously if you are planning track days or excessive thrashing a race oil would be better. However, be careful with the race oils as these tend to be good when the engine is hot, but being very "thick" the engine is not very well protected in the UK winter months and cold starting.

There are that many oils on the market then it is probably personal choice and price, but I've always preferred Castrol or Mobil brands. Have a look in your local car spares shop as buying mail order is expensive due to high postage costs due to weight and bulk (and inflamable liquids should not be sent other than by authorised carrier companies). If all else fails your local Toyota dealer should stock oil (ask for Supra engine type) - but the last lot I got was in a plain white bottle with just a Toyota label - so I has no idea who's make it actually was!! :duh:
