Keeping up with your manufacturer-recommended service schedule is the single best way to keep your Toyota Camry running smoothly in Freehold. Toyota suggests a Toyota Camry oil change about every six months, but that figure may vary depending on your driving habits and other factors. In the guide below, certified technicians at the Galaxy Toyota service center show you step-by-step how to change oil in a Toyota Camry at home in Toms River.

Toyota Camry Oil Change Service Intervals

Experts recommend a Toyota Camry oil change every 5,000 miles or every six months — whichever comes first. However, you may need to change the oil more or less often in certain circumstances:

  • Synthetic oil — If your vehicle uses synthetic oil, you need an oil change once per year, or every 10,000 miles.
  • Dirty oil filter — A dirty oil filter can release trapped contaminants back into your engine oil. If you’re changing oil at home, be sure to change the oil filter along with the engine oil.
