Thank you for choosing JustAnswer and allowing me to help you resolve your Toyota questions!


2008 and 2009 do not require synthetic oil. You can use standard 5W-30 engine oil. Synthetic engine oil was not introduced until 2010- 2011 these models use either 0W 20 or 5W 20 which are partial synthetic and full synthetic oils.
