    i have done 1000's of oil changes. this is my first on my new truck. the oil change place wanted $160 bucks so i bought 0w-20 full synthetic mobil one and a filter kit with orings etc. changing the oil was no issue at all......but when i cranked it up to check everything before i put the skid plate back on it was pouring oil from the bolt right next to the filter housing....have no idea why....i never touched that bolt and it was not leaking there before.....what do i do....it is leaking really fast....i would probably not even make it to town

    Get a different bolt and replace it to see if it stops.

    Check to see if it's loose, as in finger tight. I'd gingerly snug it up. If that reduces the flow, then maybe one of the techs can chime in with a possible torque spec and some insight.

    it was the casting of the housing. had a small crack in it. it was probably there before but when i took it off it just made the crack bigger.....went to the parts store got a new housing and now it is good to go.....

    Yep, all of our trucks come with a plastic oil filter housing. When you buy the aluminum one, you will need to change the tube in the center with the one one the plastic one. The tube that comes with the aluminum one is too short. Simple swap. I've had zero issues with mine but only have 12K on it. And yes, I change my own oil.

    Does it void warranty on truck for making any changes to it?

    No, that won't void the warranty. It's a genuine Toyota part.

    Here's what everyone should do on their first oil change..
    - Buy the cap socket.
    - Replace the plastic cap with the aluminum one.
    - Install a Fumoto (formerly "quikvalve") nozzle.

    Optionally: Use TRD filters and Royal Purple oil.
