    Thanks for posting this!! I was told by my dealership that I needed to have this done at 100K (I'm now at 135K), and it would take 8 hours at the dealership at around $1,000. Thanks for the post. You just saved an unemployed American at TON of $$$.

    Good info! Thanks for posting it, Chris, and for resurrecting the old thread, tebalzer.

    To confirm, this is applicable to TRD superchargers installed on 1st Gen Tacomas (i.e., grey AND black versions), or 1st Gen TRD superchargers (only grey versions)?

    Thanks for your quote by Ben Franklin as well. Being a "9/11 Fact-or", I know that you speak the truth with that quote. I'm new to this forum, and appreciate any suggestions for my 2001 Double Cab Taco, with 135K on it. Thanks!

    Should I do the change on level ground, or is it easier to get to the oil if the truck is facing upward or downward a hill? Would the oil run backward into the SC or forward, and "pool" in the SC making it easier to get to??

    I want to get this right the 1st time. Thanks!

    I'd imagine it would best if kept level.

    Hate to revive a dead thread. Just did this after 160k miles and only about 2-3 oz came out. I tried syringing oil out for a good hour and after the first 2 or so ounces, nothing came out. I put the new oil in and it took every bit of it. Could that much oil have evaporated after 160k miles? I didn't see any signs of a leak

    If you want the bearing to last, change the oil well before 100,000 miles. Yes the bearing will go longer but just like your engine oil you can change it at 10,000 miles or at 3000 miles and it will still run.
    FYI it only takes an hour or so to pull the supercharger off and maybe hour and half installing it.
    It an easy job, just mark all the hoses and then you can get every last drop of old oil out. Trying to suck it out only gets part of the old oil out anyway and then you will be adding new oil with old oil.
