Look up what oil is recommended in the owners manual. If you don't have one you can find one online.

Also not 100% sure if it was this generation of Camry but these things had a manufacturing fault where yhe engine would burn a lot of oil. I'm talking something like a liter for every 1000 kms. There was a service advisory on this where Toyota would fill up your oil seal the cap tell you to drive 500 or 1000kms and then recheck the oil and if it was burning oil they would fix tue problem for free. So look up if your Camry falls within those years

Oops. A liittle looking around and it seems your Camry falls in that category. I would keep my eyes on the oil level like an eagle

the atf oil is toyota t4 if you put any other oil then you are shortening the life of the transmission

and the engine is 2az fe which should run fine if you put any good quality 10w40 oil but keep in mind that it's a timing chain driven engine just change it on or before time and all will be good
