    I have always taken my 2005 Tacoma to Toyota for oil change service.

    Recently, they increased the oil change price close to $50 using only conventional oil.

    So, I was there for an oil change the other day and noticed that they were having a big sale on oil filters (like $3.95 each). I bought several and was planning to do the next oil change myself.

    The parts service guy there told me that I have to replace the washer each time I change the oil. The washer is for the bolt underneath the truck where you drain the oil.

    Is this correct? do I have to replace this (paper like) washer that Toyota is charging $1.50 for?

    Please advise.

    Many Thanks!

    Yes you should replace the crush washer.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Replaced with a Fumoto drain valve. [​IMG] No more gaskets, just flip the switch.

    I've used these since the early 80s' their great! Even though you might not do your own, it'll keep the grease monkeys from stripping your pan bolt threads.

    Thanks Gents!

    I have ordered the valve from Amazon. It looks like the Fumoto F-103N works for my Tacoma v6.

    Cheers!

    I've had mine on for at least 3 oil changes. It's great. I got the one without a nipple and am very happy with it. I changed my oil 2 days ago in wet wintery weather and it really wasn't a hassle. I wouldn't have bothered before having the valve. It does take longer to drain, but I use that time to grease the drive shaft.

    +1 on the fumoto drain valve. Can do a oil change super fast, only downtime is the oil draining! Get a little c-clamp to put on for precaution. At least that what I did.

    Does anyone know where I can dispose of the old oil? I heard you can drop them off at any auto zones for free.

    Can anyone please let me know what type of oil should I use? I would like to use the convention oil like the ones that Toyota uses for oil change.

    Thanks
