Toyota Tacoma Oil Type

2023 Toyota Tacoma SR5 SX and Chrome Packages

Your Toyota Tacoma helps you to get around Guam from one side to the other while giving you a 4×4 that’s great for your off-road adventures around our island. The best way to get the most out of owning your Toyota Tacoma is by sticking to your truck’s regular service schedule. The services performed at each appointment at Atkins Kroll Guam vary, but our technicians will look over the tires, battery, and fluid levels as we perform an oil change every six months or 5,000 miles. 



It’s vitally important to use the right type of motor oil when you get your oil changed. Otherwise, your Toyota Tacoma won’t run as effectively on Hagatna and Dededo roads.

So, what is the recommended Toyota Tacoma oil type? For peak performance, the manufacturer, and our team highly recommend SAE 0W-20 or SAE 5W-20 full synthetic oil. We also suggest Toyota’s brand of motor oil because it’s specially formulated for the automaker’s engines. 

This is the standard for many new Toyota Tacoma models. However, older model years may have different oil standards. It’s always best to check your owner’s manual or vehicle information screen to see what oil your exact model, trim, and year requires. The service team at Atkins Kroll Guam has more information on the Toyota Tacoma oil type with our guide. Keep reading to get all the details!

Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil for Your Tacoma: What’s the Difference?

The best Toyota Tacoma oil type for your SUV is full synthetic, but what exactly does this mean? Synthetic and conventional (or “regular”) motor oils may look the same, but there are some important distinctions between the two types. They’re both petroleum-based. But synthetic oil has undergone further chemical refinement to make it as effective and long-lasting as possible. 

This refinement means synthetic oil tends to be more expensive. But you’re bringing your vehicle in for an oil change less frequently. You can actually save money over the long term with full synthetic oil changes at Atkins Kroll Guam. Synthetic oil also performs better at higher temperatures, which makes it better for tough, high-performance vehicles like the Tacoma!

When Should You Change Your Toyota Tacoma’s Oil?

As stated, synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional oil, so you won’t be coming in for a Toyota Tacoma oil change in Tamuning quite as often. Although exact service intervals vary, you’ll bring your Tacoma in every 5,000 miles and every six months for an oil change. If your car runs on conventional oil, you’re usually coming in every 3,000 miles and three months. You can check your owner’s manual for more specific service intervals, or you can contact our service center, and we’ll let you know!

Either way, our service team will replace the used oil with a fresh batch that’s right for your Tacoma. We’ll put on a Toyota Tacoma oil filter designed for your make and model. We’ll have you in and out in no time!

If you want to perform a Toyota Tacoma oil change on your own, you’ll need 6.2 quarts of oil and a new Toyota Tacoma oil filter, along with some tools. The oil filter is located behind the skid plate underneath the front part of the engine compartment. We can get you the right part from our parts center.
