Postby Oats » Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:19 am

hello. I am in Botswana (Southern Africa).....I just bought 2nd hand altezza is200, 6 speed manual, 6 cylinder. Which engine oil and gear oils are suitable to use after draining out the ones that came with the car?

Hi and welcome :)

I presume if its a 6 cylinder that its an AS200 Altezza and fitted with the 1GFE engine?

I'm not completely sure of the details for these as Ive got the RS200 so best to wait for someone with an As200 or IS200 to comment more accurately ;)

Hi Oats
Welcome along.

You can use 10w40 or 5w40 fully synthetic, jus like what is used in the RS. Then for gear oil, l am not too sure for the 6 box, but if it was auto, then Toyota type TIV, is the way to go.
Hope this is useful.

I'm in the White House
