    I am planning on changing my oil soon on my new 2020 Tacoma. This will be my first time changing the oil on it and not 100% sure which one to use. Anyone have any recommendations on which oil filter I should use? Thanks

    I use the Mobile 1 0W20 oil and the Mobile one filter. And while at Walmart to get these they also have the cabin filters. This is for the 3.5 though not the 2.7L

    I got these as well, 90430-12031, oil drain gaskets. A 10 pack is $15 give or take. I get my oil from Advance Auto, Mobil 1 0/20w. I don't know if you have them near you but if you order online and pick up at the store you will usually get 20% off, sometimes 25%. They had a special on the qt size buy one get one half price awhile back. I usually buy the 5 qt jug and use the singles to top off. My local store also takes old oil.

    I buy the OEM filter on Ebay one at a time because I change my oil once a year and I might die before I used up a case of 10. I also bought a pack of the blue crush washers in case the Ebay seller sends me a filter without the crush washer.

    Advanced Auto Parts has a hell of a discount on 0W-20 Shell Rotella right now. I use it in my truck. Stock up while you can!

    I recommend AMSOIL for oil and WIX for filters. Lots of good videos on whats is best but I tend to overthink & over index on engineering of things. (Go watch Project Farm on Youtube) I also recently changed my oil and used the MotivX Tacoma kit. It was awesome and not a drop on the ground. Then I replaced the oil plug with a FUMOTO valve. Life is good!

    But, many of the metal mesh oil filters and high quality companies will do just fine.

    You are in for a treat! (evil grin) No spin on here and that is why I recommend to people the kit. You have to plunger the filter housing, drain the oil then remove a oil filter housing, change o-rings, etc. It's easy, but not your old method.

    I have the Honey app on my laptop and it usually finds the best deal. You also earn speed perk bucks at Advance Auto as well. It's $5 off most items.

    I guess it's WIX not Mobile 1?

    Ohhh okay, that makes more sense. I was wondering why the spin on filters kept saying they fit my taco, but when I checked youtube they were completely different types of filters. Thanks, this was the answer I was looking for.

    yes, they are made by CHAMPION Labs you can get a cheaper AC Delco or Supertech filter made by CHAMPION that will be good for 5-10k miles at WALMART or ROCKAUTO
