I just recently purchased a used 2004 Toyota Tacoma 4dr Prerunner w/ TRD V6 and SR5 (and the list goes on......). What is the intervals for tuneups on this vehicle? My wife's 2004 Highlander is 100k and I couldn't seem to put my finger on the manual where it states that. I am considering putting Mobil 1 in my and hers soon. I ran it in my Accord 4dr Ex for years and it was excellent. I am however happy to be back to the Toyota product and especially their trucks. My old Toyota was a 88 Toy w/ 22RE and 4wd. What a great truck. I want to drive it "sanely" so I can get good gas mileage. I see you have yours up over 22. That is impressive. What size tires and what else have you done? I wouldn't mind the custom air filter also to help.

Hi folks I have 05 Tacoma w/TRD package. Recently the truck has continuous rubbing noise, sounds from front tires. When drive off road or pass speed bump itís getting worse, annoying like youíre squeezing something. I saw guys from a Scion forum say that TRD suspensionís easy to get this problem, is it true? Sent back to dealer once, they said everything normal. Like that forum says "everythingís fine, yet the problems still exist". Sigh...
Thanks in advance

There isn't one. It just has a fill hole on the side of the transmission. If the fluid is up to hole then the the fluid level is fine. Kind of like the rear differential.

I have an '05 Tacoma, V6. Any idea how to loosen and remove the oil filter housing in order to turn it upside down to take off the filter?

I drive my '05 Double cab about 2 to 3 times per week. I was thinking of using something like Lucas Oil stabilizer to better protect the engine from cold starts. Has anyone used this and what is your opinion? Also, another general questions that someone many know. On average, how long does it take for oil to completely circulate throughout the engine?

Just had my "Maintanence Required" light to come on and stay on - on my 2005 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab pickup. Mileage is at 11,000 +.
Anyone know what I need to check for or probably replace?
Thanks for your replies.

It probably just means you need to change the oil, I think they're set to go off every 5K and the mechanic resets it after doing the maintenance. You can reset it yourself, look in the manual for instructions.
