Synthetic Oil

Hey all,

I want to change my dyno oil to synthetic and I was wondering how much/weight should go in?

2009 Acab 5lug 4banger -- Thanks!

Check your manual.
Probably 5W-20 or 0w-30

My 2011 4 cylinder 2.7 manual says only synthetic 0-20 changed every 5000 miles.

I don't know if the 2009 has the 2.3 or the 2.7 engine.

It has the 2.7. Toyota has changed the oil recommendations on the newer 2TR-FE engines. Mine is an 05 that says 5w-30 on the oil cap and the manual. 5w-30, 5w-20 or 0w-20 will all probably work just fine but the easy answer is whatever it says in your manual.
