I've been looking everywhere online for Toyota's recommendations on octane for the 2007 and 2006, but I just couldn't find anything.

#8 of 11 Preferred oil
Jul 09, 2010 (5:54 am)
Hi: Have an 06 Conv. what make and grade of oil is preferred, In FL never cold.
Nov 04, 2010 (5:39 pm)
In my 2008 Solara 4 banger the owner's manual states that 5W 20 is the recommended oil for this car. 38,000 miles. I usually buy either Motorcraft synthetic blend,Castrol syntec blend, or Quaker State full synthetic when on sale. I also use Purolater Pure One filters. Oil gets changed every 5,000 miles.
#10 of 11 steering column stuck . Synthetic Oil?
Sep 22, 2011 (10:17 am)
My 2003 Solara has 174k miles on it and is running great. JiffiLube suggested I put synthetic
oil in it, now that it has high mileage. I've read though, that it is not necessary, but is a money
maker for the oil shop.?
Also, my steering column just got stuck in the very highest position and now I can't adjust it back to the lowest setting (where I like it). Any advice from anyone??
#11 of 11 What oil grade for 2000 Solara V6?
Feb 10, 2012 (7:19 am)
What does everyone recommend I use for oil in a 00' Solara V6, 5W-30 or 10W-30? Are people using high mileage oil or regular oil?
My Fiances Solara [poor thing is about to die] is due for me to change the oil.
She doesn't drive much as we use my car mostly; I've totally forgotten the type of oil required by the car and the capacity (think it is 5quarts total).
Any help would be appreciated
