my dad gave me an 01 toyota tacoma that runs great. he had it down in south texas, but i live in colorado with sometimes extreme cold. what type of oil should i put in the engine? he was using 10w30 motor oil. it has over 200,000 miles.
Various vehicles want different types of oil. You want to check the owners manual on this one!

The best thing to do is check the owners manual to see what the manufacturer recommends. If you don't have the manual then give a call to a local Toyota dealer, talk to service or parts and ask what you should use.
Just so you know...I'm still driving my 88 Toyota pick-up with 260,000 miles...they have a long life! Good luck with it.
