Changing your oil is one of the most common DIY vehicle-owning experiences.

After I blew through my 25,000 miles, I learned that changing the oil on a third-generation Tacoma is a little different than other vehicles I’ve owned in the past, and there are a couple of things you need to be aware of.

A regular oil change is one of your vehicle’s most basic and important services. For conventional oil, Toyota recommends changing your 2021 Toyota Tacoma’s oil and filter every 3,000-5,000 miles.

The best engine oil for a Toyota Tacoma is a synthetic blend oil. This oil is made up of synthetic and mineral oils, making it perfect for trucks that see a lot of hard use. It offers better protection against wear and tear than standard mineral oils, and it also helps to keep your truck running cooler. If you are looking for the best protection for your Tacoma, synthetic blend engine oil is the way to go!

Keeping up to date with your regular Toyota Tacoma maintenance is an important step toward ensuring it continues to perform at the same high level you’ve come to depend on daily.

What Kind Of Oil Does A Toyota Tacoma Take?

The Toyota Tacoma comes with a 0W-20 oil and six quarts capacity. Toyota recommends changing your oil every 5000 miles, depending on how you use your truck. If you do a lot of stop-and-go driving or hauling heavy loads, you might need to change your oil more often.

Toyota Tacoma, from 2016 onward, requires 0W-20 synthetic motor oil. This is a full synthetic motor oil that helps improve fuel economy while providing protection for your engine in extreme temperatures.

How Often Does A Toyota Tacoma Need An Oil Change?

An oil change is one of your automobile’s most essential and enormous services. Every 3,000-5,000 miles, Toyota recommends changing your 2020 Toyota Tacoma’s oil and filter.

Why Do Cars Need An Oil Change?

Cars need an oil change to ensure the engine is properly lubricated and cooled. Oil breaks down over time, so it needs to be replaced to prevent your engine from overheating or seizing up.

Toyota Tacoma owners know that this pickup truck is a workhorse. It can handle any job, big or small. But even the toughest of trucks need proper maintenance, and that includes keeping their oil level topped off. Changing your oil every 5000 miles or so is a good idea to keep your engine running smoothly.
