    While my oil drains, I want to run something by you guys. This is my first oil change doing myself, second for the truck and I want to get this right. I bought a couple of filters from the dealer and they came with what I assumed was the oil plug gasket.

    After pulling the plug, it looks to me there is already a gasket (aluminum?) already on the plug thats seems to be fused to the plug. Or...is this just part of plug? I felt around in my oil drain pan to feel for a plug that may have slipped in to the pan.

    First pic shows gasket plug from dealer separate. Second shows it on the plug.

    Thanks!

    Look like you just need a screwdriver to get the original crush washer off....mine was actually stuck to the oil pan so much that I had to chisel it off.

    Ok, if that's the case, the gasket from the dealer appears to have a completely different makeup. It's black hard plastic and the one stuck on my plug now looks to be made of metal.

    I pryed if off with a screwdriver. I'm going to replace with the black hard plastic one from the dealer and fill her up with some Mobil 1 synthetic. Thanks!

    The one that's stuck to the plug itself should almost be fiber-like is what I would call it. According to the bag I have my gaskets in the part number should be 90430-12031.

    Yes, you're right. After getting it off, I can see that it is a fiber-like material.

    All of the OEM Toyota washers (that I have used on the Tacoma) were aluminum in center with a hard rubber like coating on each side.

    Sometimes the washers (oil drain plug) stuck on the oil pan and sometimes on the bolt and can be reused.

    With all that said, I put a fresh washer on with each oil change <--- because I am OCD on lubricants & vehicle maintenance in general. :)

    I was planning on using the same one that was on there. I was kinda surprised to find one in my oil filter box when I got home. Especially after so many on here have spoke of having to buy them.

    I figure if the dealer gives me a free one with each oil filter then I might as well put them to use. $4.50 for both Toyota filter and gasket - I'll take that.

    ^i get them for next to nothing from the dealer, so imo no point in not doing it.
