Hi Everyone,

Does anybody know if the Toyota 1ZZ-FE 1794cc four cylinder unit is one of the dreaded sludge-making motors we hear about on this board? I've just swithced over from Mobil 1 5W-30 and 10W-30 to Havoline SM oils in the same grades. I hope this is not a mistake.

I do not think it is. You'll be safe with any SM oil at a reasonable, common sense drain interval.

1911,

The 1zz engine is not one of the Toyota sludge
engines that you have read or heard about.
Do a search of the 1998 thru 2002 and later Toyota Corolla's and Chevrolet Prizm's (same engine) in
the UOA (Used Oil Analysis) section of this board,
you will find that the Toyota 1.8 liter engines do
not kill the oil like the 2.2 ltr 4 cylinders and 6 cyl's in Camry's.
There are some UOA's of these sludge maker engines
that are decent. [Smile]

Last_Z,

Terry says the engine has a tendacy to get hot in the head area but the engine does not beat up the oil like the sludge engines do.

Here is a link to a UOA of that Buster's posted of a sludger engine:

Sludger Analysis


Here is the link where Terry referred to the 1ZZ engine getting hot in the head area:

The Sludger Analysis link refers to the V6 Sludger.

See this link Toyota engines with sludge issues for details.

Your Celica engine should be safe in this regard, just don't run ANY oil out too long, if you have doubts then run a UOA.

The 1ZZ and 2ZZ engines for the 2000+ Celica do not have this problem.

Cincy,

I think you misunderstood the reason I posted the link above,
I purposely placed that UOA of an V6 Camry engine
(known sludger) to show that not all sludge engines will kill oil (sludge oil).

The link you posted:

quote:

The celica listed on this webpage does not have the 1ZZ-FE engine (120 hp thru 130 hp),
in 1996 & 1997, the Celica had 2 4 cyl. engines:

1) 1.8 liter (105 hp, belt driven not chain driven engine like the 1ZZ-FE) same engine used in the older Corolla's and Chevrolet Prizm's

2) 2.2 liter (135 hp) same engine used in the Camry

The 1ZZ-FE engine is not on the list of 'sludge engines', neither are the 1998 through 2005 Corolla's listed.

1ZZ isn't a sludge prone design.

I pulled the valve cover off mine with around 57k on it and it was absolutely spotless!No varnish or deposits,just clean metal.

I used M1 5W30 with up to 10k intervals.

The 1zz-fe is not a sludger. This link has some cool info on the engine:

http://spyderchat.com/1zzfe.pdf

Just interesting stuff to read on the development of this particular engine.

One reason the head run hotter is buy design. The thin laser clad valve seats transmitt most of the heat into the head instead of useing the valve stem to radiate heat!

Guys,

Can you tell me where the PCV Valve is on my 03 Corolla? And what the heck is VSV?

IIRC, it's Vacuum Switching Valve.
