Question 4.0L 1GR 2nd Gen Oil Change Guide

(See 3.4L 5VZ 1st Gen oil change for 1st Gen Tacomas)

The oil filter for the 2.7 second gen is: 90915-YZZG1 (the following part numbers are equivalent:
90915-YZZG1, 08922-02011, 90915-YZZD1, 90915-YZZD1-DS)

Oil filter for the 4.0 second gen is: 90915-YZZD3

Make sure you have all you need for your Oil Change:

Oil filter
Oil filter wrench
New oil plug gasket (available from dealer)
5.5 quarts of oil
5/16" ID 5ft long tube
14mm socket wrench
Oil pan
Oil funnel

Remove the plug at the bottom of the filter holder:

Connect a 5/16" 5 foot long tube to the filter drain, and run it to your Oil catch pan. Useing a filter wrench, remove the filter:


Clean the filter mount to get the dirty oil that sleft in it, out.:

Put the filter holder plug back on. Lube the new filter seal with a light film of oil:

Install the new filter. Hand tight, then 1/4 turn:

Get a 14mm socket, and find the Oil drain plug under the truck:

After breaking it loose, remove it and let the oil drain out:

After the Oil drains out, with a new gasket on the drain plug, reinstall the plug in the Oil pan and torque to 30 lb-ft:

Then, Fill with 5.5 Quarts of your favorite oil:

Run the engine for a couple of mins. and check the level:

Dont forget to recycle your used motor oil.
Many Auto parts store will accept your used motor oil for recycling. Check you phone book.

Crap.. that's how the oil comes out of that resevior... I used the 'ol soak it up with a rag technique.. (no wise a*s remarks please...)..
Also just picked up a craftsman oil filter adapter that adapts to various sized filters..

agreed. I have just been using a 16oz water bottle, but still end up spilling it some times, going to get some tubing for the next time for sure! Bump for Sticky or for other people.

Yep! If it helps, set the ratchet before turning the bolt, just to be safe.

I should've looked at this last night before I changed the oil for the first time -- oh well!
Good post though!!!! I agree it should be sticky-fied!

Man, I sure wish my oil filter was that easy to get to! ( I have the 3.4) I like that little shield that is around the base of the filter.

I used to do my own oil changes since I was in high school (1994) until I got to own my 2004 Tacoma V6. I did 1 oil change and then I gave up. It's too uncomfortable. Looks like your pictures are for a 4-cylinder Tacoma and it might be easier than changing the oil on a V6.
