    I just purchased a one-owner, used 2009 Tacoma TRD Sport with 35k miles. I was curious if the previous owner had done the recommended maintenance, so I briefly inspected the truck and have since replaced both air filters (see pics here and here).

    I see what I should do here, but is there anything else I should do or look out for? Thanks for the help!

    This is a good guide.

    Edit: You basically posted the same maintenance schedule... LOL.

    4.0 L = 4.8 quarts
    2.7 L = 6.1 quarts

    manual trans:
    4.0 L = 1.9 quarts
    2.7 L = 2.7 quarts

    It's got a turbo!
    Go to Toyota Owners and register, add your VIN once registered. If any maintenance was done by Toyota it will show up there.

    Oil changes every 5,000 miles.

    FYI: Transmission is sealed, no dipstick, no need to check fluid.

    I had a 2005 & had 175,000 miles when I traded it. Only issues were factory battery at 5 years, universal joint replaced at 120,000 miles, wheel bearing replaced @ 165,000 miles.

    I just did normal maint: spark plugs @ 50,000 miles, Oil changes @ 5,000 miles(easy to do yourself, oil filter is on top of engine), Toyota pink engine coolant (only use this, not the cheap store brands) @ 100,000 miles, Brakes when needed, periodically check the air filter ;I have the K&N & wash & re-oil(with the kit) it every 20,000 - 25000 miles. Transmission service around 120,000 miles, Rear differental service around 100,000 miles.

    I ran synthetic oil from 80,000 miles going forward. Mostly because I didn't know much about synthetic till then. You can always find deals at the autoparts store for synthetic oils. Autozone has a $10 off coupon till Sept 24th. Usually autoparts synthetic deals are around $25-$30 with oil filter. The dealer charges from $45-$60 for synthetic.

    I actually found that link in a previous search, and have already registered. Question; is there a point to go in for the accelerator pedal? Or can I just replace mats. I have seen mixed results when I searched.

    Thank you so much. This was the information I was looking for. I do have a question for you. What synthetic oil would most Tacoma owners recommend?

    I think most synthetics are the same. I usually get whatever is onsale or has the best deal.

    In my previous vehicle I used Mobile 1 5w-30, and OEM oil filters. Does it make a difference in these Tacoma's what oil filter to use?

    I buy my filters from the dealer. The more I buy the more I save. I bought a case last time & it worked out to I think $3.50 a filter. Also get the crush washers (they are inexpensive) for the drain plug.
