Hello everyone!

Hi, I just bought a 2007 Tacoma a few months ago and I am loving it. I was wondering what kind of oil that you use. Synthetic or not? Do you also put toyota oil filters on your truck or just any parts store brand?

Welcome to TW. Always buy a good quality oil filter. Oil is a preference thing. I let Toyota use their 5W-30 for oil changes. Syn's too expensive.

Toyota oil filter

Hey JDMAN. After researching synthetic oil being used in our armed forces and racing cars for it's high demand lubrication, that sold me!!! Instead of changing every 3,000 miles as before now I change every 6,000. It also helps with the added cost. I work in Toyota Sales and discovered that Toyota filters have a check valve. When you turn the engine off it keeps some of the oil still on top end. When starting in theory I would assume you get faster lubrication to the top end. I would highly recommend a Toyota oil filter!
