2001 Toyota Camry Oil Type, Filter, and Capacity

Published on January 28th, 2023 by Searchforparts.com

Thank you for visiting our site. We will provide you with information on your 2001 Camry such as the kind of oil filter, air filter, oil viscosity, and transmission fluid needed. We will also state the capacity (how much oil) needed for each engine size.

How many quarts of oil does a 2001 Camry take?

The answer to this question depends on the engine size which will be either a 2.2L or a 3.0L engine. The 2.2 or 6-cylinder takes 3.8 quarts of oil while the 3.0L 6-cylinder engine holds 5 quarts. It is a good idea to have an extra quart available to top off the engine in the event that the oil level drops after driving for a few weeks.

What weight or viscosity of oil do I need?

Both engines will take 5W-30 oil. A synthetic will protect your engine way better than regular oil.

How can I find a filter that will fit my Camry?


With so many filter sizes out there, we can suggest a few filters that will definitely fit your engine. The 4 and 6-cylinder engines have different filter sizes. After identifying what kind of engine you have, then you can choose from the filters listed below to make sure you get a proper fitting filter and not delay any oil changes.

How do I figure out my engine size?

In our experience, the quickest way is by looking under the hood and finding the spark plug cables. If you have 4 cables or spark plugs then you have a 4-cylinder and if you have 6 cables then it is a 6-cylinder engine. You can search YouTube for tutorials on this. The other way is decoding a VIN number and you can search how to do this as well, but the quickest method is looking under the hood.
