    That is how i discovered the local oil change shop didn't replace the filter in my wife's car. I've been doing it myself ever since.

    The country where I live got temperature that never goes under 20 degrees Celsius but can go to 35 degrees Celsius. Should I use Mobil 1 5w40 or 5w30?

    That's not very hot at all. Gets much warmer than that here in Texas in the summer. I use 5w-30 all year round. I wouldn't worry about changing from the recommended 5w-30.

    Toyota has updated their oil filter part number for their 2014 v-6. The part number is 90915-20004. I did put the OEM oil filter, part number 90915-YZZD3 on after measuring it with calipers and physically their the same. I did not however take it apart and check the bypass valve.

    Just trying to spread the knowledge....

    Yes. Everything was identical on the box and on the filter. The only difference was a slight change on the graphics of the oil filter box and the part number.

    I have since driven 35-40 miles since my oil change this morning. I have no oil leaking from the pan or the filter mounting bracket and the level is unchanged. No visible or auditory indication that anything was different. When I started the truck afterwards the oil light went out within 1-2 seconds and it's running fine.

    I hit the 800 mile mark on my Taco so I switched to synthetic. Mobil 1 5W-30.

    That is not a new part number, that's the part number of the filter that comes on the 4.0L V6 from the factory. Don't know if they've been on there since 2005 but I know that filter has been around for a while, my 2012 came with it. Been using YZZD3 ever since my first oil change though. The 20004s are kind of hard to find I believe.

    One thread of many I found using google: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/96424-oil-filter-90915-20004-a.html

    Take the dipstick out, wait ten minutes, then check. Otherwise, its tough to tell.

    These are the toughest dipsticks to read a true level on that I have used. I will try your suggestion, thanks.

    What can I do for my 4.0 when pulling the drain plug to keep it from being so forceful. Mine hits the pan and bounces right out for the first few seconds??

    Just used this guide yesterday for my 2014's v6 first oil change. Couple things . 4ft of line is probably enough for the filter drain, my truck did not come with the 90915-YZZD3 off the assembly line so the dealers 90915-YZZD3 filter wrench did not fit to remove. Nothing a big pair of channel locks couldn't handle though. The dipstick is hard to read at first even worse than the 2.7L . Thought for one minute I did the notorious trans drain lol.

    That's a good thing. Fast flow helps to flush solid metal particles out of the engine oil pan.

    Use a taller pan like this one: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/FloTool-5-gal-oil-drain/_/N-25yj?itemIdentifier=134895&_requestid=2496257
