    Had my Jeep Wrangler stolen and replaced it with an 09 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner 2.7/4 cylinder, manual. Def digging it! I don't have an owner's manual so I'm wondering what grade oil you all are using? I used synthetic in the jeep but am not opposed to using regular. Alohas

    My 2008 2.7 calls for 5w20, but 5w30 should be fine too.

    At some point toyota changed what oil is recommended in the 2tr-fe engine. My 05 says 5w-30 but some of the later ones (as stated above) say 5w-20. I think it is printed on the oil filler cap too so you can check there to see what is recommended for your year. I think either will work just fine though.

    Agree, 0W-20 is the rec. for an '09 too. This is based off the fact of newer technology and the over-all age of your truck. Many who use 30 are older thought or older trucks. Temps too though play a part.
