    So I just received my Toyota Care booklet (key ring cards, wallet cards) in the mail yesterday. On the card it says: "Oil type: Conventional" What gives? I thought they ran synthetic in the Tacoma's. So if I want synthetic I guess I am going to have to pay for it.

    I agree the Toyota Care is not consistent.
    My oil in the Tundra is syn but the maintenance plan says change @ 10K. :eek:
    I brought it in for the 5k service & the service order said they changed the oil.
    :confused:
    If it was as easy as my V6 tacoma was, it would even get done there.

    There is an ultimate oil change thread DIY. 30 min tops.

    Ultimate Oil Change

    A 10pk of OEM oil filters was $30 & Mobil 1 5 gal @ WalMart $26.
    Guaranteed done right & you can use whatever oil you want whenever you want.
