TOYOTA GENUINE MOTOR OIL
WHAT IS IT?
Toyota Genuine Motor oil (TGMO) protects the engine from engine loss, heat and wearing of contact surfaces caused by friction occurring in the engine. Toyota Motor oil has 5 functions lubrication, cooling, sealing, preventing corrosion and cleaning.

COOLING – Motor oil also absorbs the heat from the engine parts that become hot. This helps prevent your engine from overheating. The motor oil also helps radiate this heat to the outside of the engine.
SEALING – Creating an oil film between piston and cylinder seals, motor oil helps prevent loss of engine power.
PREVENTING CORROSION- Motor oil protects the engine from oxygen and water that is present in the engine from rust and corrosion.
CLEANING- Motor oil also washes away sludge, soot and other substances in the engine to keep it clean.
