The Capacity, Filter Needed, and Type of Oil for a 2000 Camry.

Published on January 27th, 2023 by

The 2000 Toyota Camry comes with either a 2.2L or a 3.0L engine and we are going to discuss everything you need to maintain it such as the kind of oil, a proper fitting filter, and the amount of oil needed for each engine. Let’s get started!

How much oil do I need to put in a 2000 Camry?


The 2.2L or 4-cylinder takes 3.8 quarts of oil and the 3.0L engine requires 5 quarts of oil. These capacities are with the filter installed.

What kind of oil does a 2000 Camry take?

Both engines require 5W-30 oil and this is for all engine sizes. If you are offered another type of oil then please insist on 5W30. You can use regular oil but a synthetic will protect the engine way better!

Where can I find the owner’s manual?


We found it online and put the link here for your convenience, it will download directly from Toyota. You can get your owner’s manual by visiting the following link.

What kind of filter does a 2000 Camry need?


There are thousands of filter reference numbers and this can get confusing. We have verified two different filters that will fit either the 2.2L or the 3.0L engine and you can find the links for each below.

How do I know if I have a 4 or 6-cylinder engine?


Here is a helpful video! You can count how many spark plugs are underneath the hood using this video tutorial! Since you are going to open the hood, check the oil level to make sure the oil is not low. How to tell how many cylinders my engine has. If you determine you have 4 then your engine is a 2.2 liter and if you have 6, then it is a 3.0 liter. Easy!

Extended the life of your engine! Upgrade to better oil than any other brands on the local shelf at the store! Get high-quality tested synthetic for your vehicle and a great filter to keep your engine protected to the max! Do not risk it with a cheap brand as your engine needs extra care since it may have high mileage.
