2012 and 2013 2.7 engines come from the factory with 0w20 synthetic oil and the proper change interval is 10,000 miles.

There is still no way I am waiting 10000 miles to change oil in any new vehicle, regardless of "broken in" change intervals. I'm about to go 0-20w today on my oil change with a factory filter and I gaurantee that it will not stay in there for 10000 miles. Oil does not last that long unless you have some crazy fill spec....like 10 qts.

First, I have a 2008 with 80k on it, and I use Mobil-1 5w30 and change it at 5k.

That said...

A quality synthetic such as Mobil-1 or Amsoil will last 10k, no problem, even without some "crazy fill specs". I've been around the block, and I've seen a shitload of used oil analysis reports. Quality synthetic is good to 10k.
Beyond 10k, the additive package becomes a concern, and I would not consider it without an added bypass filtration system, AND a filter change at 10k.
With the filter change, the additive package is replenished and will hold for another 10k.

Finally, on the 5k/10k interval, Toyota has published some conflicting information, but the factory recommended interval for the 2012 and later 2.7 with 0w20 synthetic is in fact 10,000 miles. Some of the earlier publications indicated 5k.

Whatever.

This is in conflict with information that many others have been given by Toyota.

you should not say what you do not know

Conflict
toyota has it wrote out in black and white,go to a good dealership they will give you no problems with your 2011 and 12 tacoma 5000 mile oil change that is covered under toycare,im just tring to keep tacoma owners from making a large investment in their truck then do the wrong service intervals.my wife owns a 2012 corolla and it has a different engine than the 2.7 tacoma and it does go 10000 miles between oil changes,this should be the end of this discussion

If the dealer over fills it thats their issue not yours. If your engine blows thats their fault if you can provide documentation that they service the vehicle

If anything, the Corolla should run a shorter interval because it's capacity is 2 quarts lower and the filter is smaller.... just as a Diesel pickup can go 10k on non-synthetic because it carries 10-15 quarts and runs a full 1qt filter.

If it means money out of their pockets then you can count on anything being denied, even when they did the service. If Toyota sees fit to address the discrepancy between measurements on the stick and their specs in the manual then I guess they will. Until then, 5.5 qts with a factory filter puts the level dead on F mark on the 2.7 and there is nothing that is arguable about that. 1/2 a qt less out of 6 isn't gonna matter to the motor or the life of the oil. It might on my car that takes 3.7 qts to refill but still, F on the stick puts all liability on the manufacturer as far as oil level being any issue.
And the manual says the "...engine oil capacity is a reference only...check the oil level on the dipstick."

So I would say that they have addressed the discrepancy.

are you on level ground, because I though the same thing when I checked my dipstick one time calling out the oil change place and they told me to bring it there and I parked it in the bay and they checked it right there in front of me and it read right where its supposed to and not where I thought it was.....needless to say I felt like a dumbass that day

OP, glad they worked it out for you. I know its free, but do yourself a favor and change your own oil. You will know its done right, and not have to worry.

For the record, I think its insane to go 10,000 miles before an oil change. I don't care if its synthetic or not.

Pops changes the oil on his 1994 Chevy z71 4x4 once a year . Drives about 10k miles a year . Uses synthetic . No engine problems .

5.5 always brings mine to the top of the full mark. I ended up letting the dealership change it last time and I didn't look at the receipt till a few days later, they only showed 5 quarts. I checked the level and it's about middle of the safe range.

Overfilling the oil from what I remember being told can cause one issue which is too much pressure in the oil lines causing them to possibly blow. But I would be angry too if they fill my truck incorrectly. That is why I do my own maintenance on the truck. I am the only one I can trust.

I think this will always be an ongoing problem. I use to be one of the guys that really stressed over this point, but after reading everyone of the threads on the subject I have seen people running 5, 5.5 and 6 and arguing their case for all, but what I haven't seen are any threads showing a damaged engine from oil starvation or overfilling. So I would think it's safe to say anything from 5-6 is fine. I was just surprised that my local dealership only put in 5. I would have thought they would look at the their manual which I assume says 6 and set their oil machine accordingly.

Why is this still really going on? Oil sits in the bottom of the pan anyways and the pump tube/oil strainer is damn close to the bottom of the pan. A half quart of oil won't make a bit of difference. Make sure there is oil on the stick and forget it. Good lord.

And I change my oil every 3K...with Full Synthetic. Oil WILL last a good while, additives in the oil don't. I'll do mine every 3K. Thanks.
