    I wouldn’t hold my breath on that $20 part being better than oem plastic. If you do end up ordering it, measure everything to make sure the stand off is the same height as oem, you don’t want it to bypass the filter.

    If you are going to buy that part, you should buy from a dealership and pay the money. Too much potential loss for a failure. There have been non-OEM examples with poor manufacturing quality and bypassing oil.

    That’s the one….BUT….you know the factory one, like the one that is definitely an OEM Toyota part because you buy it from the dealer is like $40….that can is also a single point failure for catastrophic engine damage.

    Now I’m not judging or know your budget, but I’d think your fairly new truck is worth a real Toyota part especially for an extra $20 if you're going to do that upgrade.

    Plus think of your powertrain warranty, that part fails I can guarantee what the dealer is going to say when your engine is seized. At least the cheapo stock plastic one will keep it on Toyota.

    What's wrong with you OEM filter housing?

    Funny that it shows material is plastic and clearly shows it is not plastic lol.
    Also, their descriptions are great:

    Rest assured, when this thing fails, you can get a new one;

    Also, when installing these cartridge style housing, notice it’s an o-ring vs a crush gasket. No need to go super tight because of the way the oring seals against the housing.

    It will say it don’t fit because the composite oem part # is different. Amazon part # finder will not show what parts are interchangeable.
    Oem composite - 15620-36020
    Oem alum - 15620-31060

    I know they are interchangeable because the oem alum cap from our Lexus 07 Es350 fit our Lexus 18 Rx350, which had the composite cap, and the oem cap # for the Rx is the same for V6 third gen Tacoma models. I bet $$ all the Toyota/Lexus 3.5 v6 engines have the same oil cap housing #.

    I went with this cap on amazon which states it is oem and not an aftermarket. Going on four years with no issues.

    I was interested in a backup, in case I somehow ruin the
    Nice catch on the details. I can't believe I missed all that.

    Nothing wrong with my plastic one now. I was interested in a backup, just in case I somehow ruin the plastic one. You guys make a good case for oem.

    Of the 2 links provided in this thread so far, I think I'll go with the one that includes the plug.
    Thanks

    Ya, they fail all the time. If you owned a 3rd gen 7 years you'd find out.

    I'm talking about the coolant pipe.

    Hmm, seems pretty critical then. Toyota could be sued for this

    I have 2012 with "plastic" and 2017 with "plastic" with combined 220K miles. The "plastic" comes off effortlessly every oil change
    Keep trying..

    Yes, in the last 5 years I've also had two 3rd gens and one of mine failed. I initially took the trucks in for free oil changes under toyotacare. When I stopped doing that and just changed it myself the housing was tighter than fuck from the dealer so I had to get a cheater bar on the ratchet to get it off and the housing cracked.
