    This is my 2nd Tacoma 6 cylinder 4x4 double cab Trd and the problem I have is when you check the engine oil level it does not read proper on the dipstick because when you put it back in oil covers the dipstick and you cannot get an accurate reading. Both my 06 and 2010 do this. Do you guys have the same trouble and what do you do about it.

    Common problem man! Sucks, but just make sure after you shut it off that you give plenty of time for the oil to drain down to the pan. Still gonna do it some though.
