    I'd suggest noting which motor you have in your profile. For the V6, I've seen the Fram PH8 (a very popular filter) used-that doesn't mean I'm suggesting the Fram. It's just a reference for cross-over info and a larger filter than the oe Toyota, MORE filtering area (as long as the size doesn't interfere with anything) is always a good thing! If you have the 2TRFE (4 cyl vvt motor) I use the Purolator Gold 20195, it's about 50% more filter, fits fine in my 2wd Tacoma (poss issues w/the 4x4 for remove/ install-but a very good choice. I've used this w/Amsoil Extended Life for 5 years, had the used oil tested twice and have had no problems with anything. Use an Ester based oil, a high quality oil and air filter and run at least one "used oil anaylisis" (to check for metals or silica/sand) to see where your at. Good Luck

    Many filters will physically fit our engines.
    That doesn't mean they are correct.

    There are two different thread pitches that are very close together and the filters will generally fit, but they are not fully secure.
    Also, the main issue, is the bypass valve.
    Different engines have different bypass valve specifications, and in some engines, NO bypass is desired because it is internal to the oil pump (the old SBC was like that).

    Yes, the standard Ford filter (PH8A cross reference) used to be the specified Toyota filter up until some time in the mid 1980s... but it is no longer the "correct" filter and using it could be pointed to by the dealership as a reason for denying warranty service.

    Also, just because a filter can is larger does not mean that it uses a larger filter element than a filter half it's size.

    The OEM filter does a perfectly fine job, it's cheap, and it is readily available. There is no reason to screw around with alternatives. It's not like we're driving some oddball vintage import no longer made, needing improvisation on maintenance parts.

    There was a video done a while back and may have been someone on TW that opened all the filters and did a comparison on all of them. Toyota's filter was the best hands down.

    So how long will a OEM filter last if your running a 7500 or 10000 mile synthetic like Amsoil or some other brand?

    Toyota factory-fills with Mobil-1 on the new 2.7, but still recommends 5000 mile intervals.
    10,000 mile intervals are approved for other vehicles, but not the Tacoma (and some others).

    If you want to go past a 5000 mile OCI, either have your own Used Oil Analysis done, or take a look at UOAs for the same engine on BITOG.

    Be careful doing that. I looked at finding a filter with a bigger can with my NAPA guy a while back. We found several that would fit, but none had the correct bypass or drain-back valves. I don't remember the part #'s for the ones we found. BTW, the 51348 also fits most Briggs & Stratton lawn mower engines.

    I called my local Toyota dealership Saturday to get my first oil change since I bought my "used" truck in December. They wouldn't answer so I went in and bought a OEM Toyota oil filter. I went down to the Citgo where I used to get my silverado oil changed. They gave me a $2.00 oil filter credit since I brought my own. The manager came inside and asked me if Toyota said that I had to use their oil filter and I said no they didn't but I heard that the Toyota's filter has a spring in it that makes it the best or one of the best filters for my truck. He said that he Citgo brand or their brand had the spring inside theirs. He gave me an explaination of what it did. Does anybody know if this is true or not? I was going to buy 1 Toyota filter but the lady said if I bought 2 or more then it was $4.95 per filter. So I got 2 filters for $10 and some change after tax.
