Schedule Service: FAQs

Q: How long does an oil change take? Can I wait for my oil change?

A: How long does an oil change take at Ray Brandt Toyota? Usually, you can expect an oil change to take under an hour.

Q. What is my Toyota oil type?

A: When it comes to choosing the right oil for a popular model like the Toyota Camry or Corolla, it’s important to consult your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended specifications. Typically, Toyota recommends using synthetic or synthetic-blend oils with a viscosity of 0W-20 or 5W-20 for most Camry and Corolla models. However, some newer Camry and Corolla models may require different oil types, such as 0W-16. Using the incorrect oil type or viscosity can lead to decreased performance and potentially cause damage to your engine. To ensure the longevity of your Toyota Camry or Corolla, it’s always best to use the oil type and viscosity recommended by Toyota. You can follow the same rules for other Toyota models, or you can visit our Kenner service center for guidance!

Q: What are the Toyota tire sizes?

A: Any Toyota tire size guide features numerous tire options in light of Toyota model years and trim levels. For example, the Toyota Camry tire size is 215/60R16, 215/55R17, 235/45R18, and 235/40R19, depending on the year or configuration. The Toyota Corella tire sizes provide another example, with typical sizes including 195/65R15, 205/55R16, 215/45R17, and 225/50R18, again in light of the trim and model year. Toyota tire sizes are typically found on the tire sidewalls and the numbers consecutively refer to the tire width, aspect ratio, diameter, and load index. The letter ‘R’ represents ‘radial tire,’ aka the tire design.

If you need assistance determining the correct Toyota Camry tire size, Toyota Corolla tire size, or any other Toyota tire size, let us know! Our team is always here to help.

Q: What is the recommended Toyota tire pressure?

A: The correct Toyota tire pressure depends on the model. Toyota tire pressure guides list the suggested tire pressure per model to help drivers in New Orleans, Metairie, and everywhere else keep their tires at the correct levels. For example, the Toyota Camry tire pressure is typically between 30 and 35 psi, while the Toyota Corolla tire pressure is usually between 32 and 35 psi.

To find your Toyota’s recommended psi, check your vehicle’s driver-side door jamb or your owner’s manual. Both provide the specific Toyota tire pressure guide you require to keep your tires in excellent condition. Too-low pressure causes tires to make extra contact with the road and wear out faster. It also increases roll resistance, which taxes the engine and results in higher fuel usage. Over-inflated tires do not make enough contact with the road and additionally risk blowouts.

If you have any questions regarding the Toyota tire pressure guide at any time, let us know! Our Toyota Tire Center is also here whenever you need new tires!

Q: Do I have to use synthetic oil in my Toyota? 

A: If you recently bought a model from our favorite automotive brand, you might wonder, “Do I have to use synthetic oil in my Toyota?” Generally, yes. Toyota synthetic oil is added during the final stages of the manufacturing process, such as Toyota SAE OW-16 Synthetic Motor Oil or Toyota SAE OW-20 Synthetic Motor Oil. Models requiring Toyota synthetic oil include:

  • Camry
  • RAV4
  • Corolla
  • Prius
  • Prius Prime
  • Corolla iM
  • C-HR
  • Avalon
  • Tacoma
  • Sienna
  • Highlander
  • 4Runner
  • Tundra
  • Land Cruiser
  • Sequoia
  • 86

Toyota synthetic oils are better at maintaining their viscosity in extreme temperatures than conventional motor oils. They also offer more engine protection and last longer than regular oils. So how often do you have to change synthetic oil in a Toyota? As a general rule, change the oil every 7,500 to 15,000 miles depending on factors such as the specific oil type, Toyota model, how often you drive, and where you drive in La Place and the surrounding areas. If it’s time to schedule an oil change for your Toyota, contact us today!

Q: What are the Toyota dashboard warning light meanings? 

A: As with most modern vehicles, there are a variety of Toyota dashboard warning lights that illuminate at various intervals. Whenever a Toyota warning light comes on, it means something in your model needs attention. For example, if the Low Fuel Level Warning Light illuminates, it tells you the gas level is low and needs topping off. This light looks like a small gas pump. Other lights include the oil lamp-looking light, or Low Engine Oil Pressure Warning light, which calls for more motor oil. Additional Toyota warning light meanings include:

  • Cruise Control Indicator–means cruise control has been activated
  • Charging System Warning Light–indicates a charging system malfunction
  • Headlight High Beam Indicator–tells you the high beams are on
  • Seat Belt Reminder Light–calls for the driver and front passenger to put their seat belts on
  • Tire Pressure Warning Light–indicates low tire pressure

These and other Toyota dashboard warning lights are outlined in your owner’s manual. You’ll also find them on the official Toyota site and can always ask our team about Toyota warning light meanings!
