    If you can rotate the rear driveshaft by hand with the wheels on pavement, I need to start going to your gym. ;)

    This past weekend I converted my 06 over to Mobil1 Ext. with Mobil1 filter. The current mileage is 95,500.
    The service light went out as per instruction. The next change will be around 110,000:ballchain: The 3k to 5k is soooo stuck in my head.
    I did go 5k on the F150 but I was worried ,I aint gonna lie. Old habits:mad:

    Thanks for the tube idea! I have just been leaving the plug on, removing the filter, then holding a Solo cup under the drain when I remove the plug to catch the oil. This occasionally ends up in me burning an appendage on a hot engine part and/or dropping the Solo cup and making a mess. My new truck has the oil cooler, which takes up some room and causes the oil to overflow a little. My Chrysler-loving neighbor thought my new foreign truck was leaking oil. Then the engine in his RAM blew up.

    With the key in the "Off" position, push, and hold the ODO reset button. Then, while still holding the button, turn the key to the "On" position. NOT the "Accs" position. Hold the button until the ODO resets to 00000

    Does the gasket need to be replaced at each oil change?

    On my previous truck I used the same one every oil change for 10 years! Amazing I never lost it

    Is the oil drain plug on all Toyotas the same size? Would anyone know the specific size of the drain plug on a 2011 Toyota 4.0L V6 (1GR-FE)? I am not asking about the wrench size to remove the drain plug but the spec'd size of the plug itself. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Chris 4X4,

    I was just reading your drain tube post here. I like it. Does that hose stay on there permanent? Also, what is an oil catch can? Does our truck already have that? Can't I just leave the hose on permamently & let it drain into the "old" oil drain pan?

    Thanks
    :D

    I take it off after each change, roll it up, and put it in the oil colector pan. It just slips on/off, so its easy.
