With the proper tools, anyone can change their own oil. The oil will be fine for a daily driver as they motors don't spin a lot of rpms and cook the oil like my old civic with a b16a that would see 6000-8400 rpms to keep it in vtec. Break-in oil I feel that he may have been spoofing me too.
After about 7-8 seconds, the car finally responded and started slowly rolling to normal speed. Or do you need a very good synthetic oil that has a broader range of operating temperatures? Backed down off berm, didn't do damage. This video shows how to perform an oil change on a 2014 Corolla and its for educational purposes only. Took car to Toyota, report done and an analysis. Is the 0W-30 okay for winter driving here in Eastern N.
I will bring it in for the 5k maintenance soon, but I will be doing my own oil changes. If you can resolve our issue by either an equivalent exchange of another vehicle, or fix the real reason it's not running properly, and frankly never has, I would appreciate any help that can be given on my behalf.

Today's modern engines are manufactured to tighter clearances than engines of yesteryear for better emissions control and improved fuel economy. After 2-3 minutes, I started the engine and all returned to normal.
So I kept adding oil. I've read forums where this has happened with other Corollas and Camry. I turned the engine off. The exact same happening occurred to me just 2 days later on March 19, 2014.

The approximate failure mileage was 27,500. I'm curious why the 20. Choosing synthetic or regular motor oil depends on a few things. I do live in the Southeast and temps in the summer are usually 90 plus or minus 5 degrees. A primary reason I buy Toyotas, and new ones, is so I can maintain and keep a reliable auto for many years.
For those of us in areas where 100 degrees is common in the summer I would think that 0W-30 would be better. But for some, it couldn't matter more. Perhaps I may decide on a 0w-30. These cold temperatures can cause regular oil to break down faster than synthetic. For most Toyotas, you can wrap an old belt around the oil filter and unscrew it by hand.
