well first of all let me say hello, i stumbled upon this forum looking on the internet for what would be best oil for my car. Amsoil, Redline, Mobil 1 were all recommended but after reading about the wonderous "GC" i couldn't help but wonder if it would be suitable for my car. I have a 2001 toyota celica GT. I've about 85k on the clock and drive mainly highway miiles. I'm from So. Cal and frequently drives in areas with HIGH temps (i.e. inland empire/high desert) Thanks again and also i just wanted to say, that it's pretty good to find a forum filled with EDUCATED people -TONY

Hello, and welcome! I think GC would work great in your car, as it's almost a 40 weight oil. If not GC, M-1 T&SUV 5w-40 would be a good choice @ $4/quart at WalMart. If you haven't been using a synthetic oil, I would recommend doing an AutoRX treatment first to dissolve any sludge you may have. Synthetic oil may cause the sludge to 'break aloose' which could clog your oil pump.
