Stock toyota oil filter or any brand oil filter?

I am going to changing my oil in my 06 Tacoma. I was wondering should I buy a stock Toyota oil filter from the dealer or any oil filter that is out on the market? Is there a difference?

It doesn't really matter, you can just go to an auto parts store and buy one.

i did not notice this until i read all the info on fram oil filters on this site. i now switched back to the toyota filter. its relatively cheap, and someone did a test on it by cutting it open and it actually did fairly well in how it filtered the iol

The silver Fram filters (Extra Guard or Double Guard or Tough Guard, I can't remember) aren't bad, but the regular orange ones are not good. I use Wix/Napa Gold, but any quality filter will do.

Well I used the orange ones on my previous cars and never had problems. I'd rather not risk it at all so I stopped using them.

I used to use the Fram Tough Guard the first few times on my oil changes and no problems but I switched to Toyota OEM filters the past few times and will be sticking with them from now on.

+1 on Napa Gold/Wix. My favorite is Purolator PureOne. I use the PL20195 for oversized application. PureOne showed the best fitration capability of higher end filters. Amazon has them at a good price as well.

I agree. I'm coming from a 2008 STI, and one of the members on the Subaru forum took apart pretty much every brand of filter and showed the filtration element and inside construction on each.

The best were the Purolator Pureone and Mobile1 filters. I've been running Pureone's every since and been happy. Plus if you order them from amazon their pricing is comparable to pretty much any filter out there, so why not get the quality of the Pureone?

Doesnt really matter? LOLOL... The most important maint. item on your truck, but it doesn't matter? Some of you guys will spend X amount of money on air filters, oil brand, tires, etc..., but the oil filter doesnt matter?? HAHAHHA...

Do yourself and your truck a favor and use an OEM filter ONLY. A few extra dollars a year wont kill you, and your truck will thank you by lasting 300,000 miles plus.

Anyone know who makes Toyotas filters for them? I highly doubt they make their own filters.

I personally use Puralator Pureone w/ mobil 1 synthetic oil unless advance is running the package deal on the mobil 1 filter and oil.

Edit nevermind...google is my friend. They are made by denso.

I forgot to mention that I use K&N oil filters because I like having a larger filter and the 1" nut on top is nice.

Interesting article I found while googling...a little dated but still good info. Apparently Mobil 1 filters are made by champion labs as well as a few others such as STP.
