JZX GENERAL MAINTENANCE

Below you can find the main part numbers and fluid quantities required to maintain your JZX.

OIL SYSTEM

  • Engine Oil: 5.1 Litres (oil change only)
  • Engine Oil: 5.4 Litres (oil and filter change)
  • Engine Oil Filter: Ryco part # Z418 (90mm tall)
  • Engine Oil Filter: Ryco part # Z68 (120mm tall)
  • OEM Engine Oil: Toyota Genuine (SAE 10W-30)

Aftermarket Engine Oil: You can use any brand you are happy with providing it is either the factory specified 10W-30 or
something close to that viscosity range. For example, a 10W-40 oil should be just fine, as should a 5W-30 etc.

COOLING SYSTEM

If you are planning to use an aftermarket coolant, make sure it is compatible with Toyota Red as other coolant types
may eat away at the alloy cylinder heads.
