Oil is a very important to the vehicle’s overall performance, as it lubricates all components with the engine. We recommend that you check the oil level in your vehicle daily to reduce the likelihood of mechanical breakdown. You should check the oil when the engine is cool, first thing in the morning is a good time to do this.
If you notice the oil level is below the ‘minimum’ mark, refill 1L of oil, not more as you will risk overfilling. If you notice a leak or if the level of oil is decreasing quickly, contact Travellers Autobarn for assistance.
The recommended oil for your vehicle is:
- Australia: 20w50 for all models
- New Zealand: 10w40 for Toyota Hiace and 20w50 for the Toyota Estima
- USA: 5w40 for Chevrolet Express and 5w30 for the Dodge Caravans.
