Originally posted by LarryL: Part of my motivation to post that response was listening to a service writer tell a customer that 5w-30 was recommended but that a much thicker oil like 10w-30 should be used for Southern California, that it was twice as thick and therefore gave twice the protection.

Originally posted by ekpolk: No, it's threaded. You just screw the cap on. The cap does have a fancy mechanism in it that "releases" and starts "clicking" once you've screwed the cap tight enough.

quote:That is interesting. I always thought the oil level was specified as high as possible without getting into foaming due to crankshaft thrashing? It is OK to add a quart? Does this oil cap nonsense make much less sense than 3 month, 3 K oil changes and 2 year brake fluid changes? If you have engine trouble, make sure the oil cap is right before the dealer sees it. Has anybody checked theirs after an Iffy Lube oil change?
Originally posted by Louie's gone fishing: Now that we have that settled, has anyone read the Toyota TSB on switching for 5w-30 to 5w-20 in certain approved models? The switch includes a dip stick with markings that make the oil level one quart higher?
