    synthetic or dino oil is all preference. 5w30 is good all around oil for the 4.0......unless your year specifies 5w20...cant remember which year they changed to putting in 5w20. toyota filters test better than the rest,and they are cheap.

    :) We have a 2013 Lexus ES350 and with it's 3.5 Litre V-6, and it now requires the 0W20 oil like my 2.7 Taco. I have heard that Toyota was going to make all it's models use the 0W20 oil.
