I just changed the oil for the first time on my new 2008 Tacoma 4x4 4.0L (about 2200 miles). I did almost get tricked by the tranny plug (it seemed too far back anyway), but thanks to this forum, I got the right one (the 14mm right? lol)
Anyway, I noticed a slight to moderate gasoline odor in the oil and was wondering if this was normal. I'm thinking a brand new vehicle might be "tightening up" and the oil should clean itself out after a change or two. Maybe some solvents or something when putting a new engine together. It runs fine, and I'm getting 18 mpg city.
Is this anything to be alarmed about? Any thoughts?
PS I love this truck...
