Thanks for this thread! My warranty is up on my 2011 and I'm gonna try changing the oil myself for the first time!

Thank you Chris 4x4! Subbed and I will definitely be doing this next time. I can admit that I've never done an oil change myself yet...first time for everything!

For anyone reading this thread and worried about the crush washer on the oil pan, dont! My truck is 10yrs old and is still using the original from the factory w/no leak of anykind. Same for the diffs and transfer case.

Then it's not a 2nd gen but yes, the crush gasket is fine for multiple uses if it's not cracked or warped.

Thanks!
I wouldn't worry about it either, some new Tacoma's coming in for their first oil change have condensation on the oil cap.

Just did a change on the wife's 4Runner at 40K miles, I had never changed the gasket -- never really have on other vehicles, and no leaks. The gasket was stuck pretty good to the oil pan, took a while to knock it off. So if it did get a leak, you could mess up the pan getting it off. I would suggest changing it at least every other change as cheap insurance.

I had just taken my Taco in for the free 20K service and to check the brake squeal issue covered by a new TSB (I just have them give me the filter and gasket and change it with synthetic myself, let them rotate the tires and check alignment). While I was there I stopped by parts to buy 10 of the gaskets and they just gave them to me for free. So for me, it is free insurance. Got a case of Toyota filters off of eBay for $44 shipped, so I am set for a while now. AutoZone has good $10-off coupons on the 5-quart jugs, too, so I stock up when they send them.

On your '11 there is no need to remove the skid plate, unless you have an aftermarket skid plate installed, even though most have a hole so you can read the drain plug with a ratchet extension and a 14mm socket. And the filter is on top on the V6, and easily assessable on top of the exhaust on the 4 cyl.

What we use at work is a oil quart bottle cut in half to catch the running oil. I usually remove the black cap before unscrewing the filter (less mess that way).
I recommend using a bottle of Mobil 1 cut in half the top of the bottle screws in the Toyota filler neck ( ahh ha! We now have a funnel!) and you can use the bottom half to catch the oil.
