    just purchased 2013 4.6L V8 tundra trd offroad SR5 Had about 1-1/2 months great truck, love driving .Looking at oil change , wow what a difference. Need info on filter numbers, and amount of oil. Seen guys saying Toyota filters on e-bay by the case , but are they putting in stock Toyota , or TRD filters with metal frame on ends ? Quite a difference in price. Thanks for any advice.

    If you have your owners manual, all that information will be in the maintenance section. I do believe the oil filters are the same on the 5.7/4.6 V8 equipped trucks. I used either Mobil 1 filters or stock ones. I did get a better price on them at the Lexus dealership if I purchased 4. They were around 3.00 each.

    Glad you’re lovin the truck. What’s not to like right?

    Great advice. I’ve been using Fumoto valves since 05’, and it makes the whole oil change experience “mo better”.

    the 4.6L is the displacement mines 4.6L V8 not 5.7L, as far as the manual goes , its a 2007 year manual, some how the dealer I bought it from said it came with it . Most everything in it seems the same ,are they that close over 6 yrs. As for filters , no one uses the TRD filter?

    Off the top of my head... the TRD filter is PTR43-00081. The standard OEM Toyota filter is 04152-YZZA4. They're the same for 4.6 and 5.7, oil capacity is 7.9 quarts with the filter change. The book says 7.9, some guys say 8.5 and i read one post where someone said 9.1. I use 8 quarts of Toyota 0W20 and the level on the dipstick is right where it should be. I used one TRD oil filter and honestly didn't notice any difference or benefit, however my truck is a flex fuel so I change my oil every 5000 miles. For someone going 10,000 between changes the TRD filter may be more beneficial. For me it only amounted to any extra $5 for a filter.

    Also, make sure to change the aluminum crush washer on the oil pan drain plug. If you get your oil and filter from a dealer they'll usually give you one. If not, they can be ordered on Amazon or eBay.

    thanks ,I think I'm gonna go with the trd filter, I heard if you run the regular filter they can come apart if run to long . And I'm looking at 5w20 mobile1 . Also I've read about the fumoto valves and I just can't bring myself to trust it. To simple to not leak or get hit.

    I use WIX oil filters. I have not see them mentioned on Forum.

    Years back I read an unbiased study on oil filters. They did a dissection of many name brand filters and commented on quality; pleats, check valves, construction etc. I recall many of them were speculated to be the same just rebranded, and the famous orange one being of the lowest quality. WIX was rated at the top. I find them in the $8-10 at local parts stores. When in hand they actually feel like they are quality.

    12-15 years later there may be more quality oil filters out there, just have not seen a more recent study.
