    i got a 2007 toyota tacoma with the 4.0 v6, and i changed the oil about 1,000 miles ago to royal purple synthetic and when i changed it i had a light film of foam on the oil cap and i just checked it and the foam is still there. has anyone had problems like this?

    Condensation. Cold weather, and short trips can cause this to happen. Step up the frequency of your oil changes, as a preventative measure.

    Take a nice longer trip 2 or 3 times a week. Get the engine up to operating temp for about 10 miles or so will help boil out the condensation. Or more frequent oil changes as another suggested.

    I seen this happen with high detergent oils. Maybe a by-product of mixing the new with some left over dino oil in the engine.
