2006 Toyota Tacoma V6 engine oil sensor location

Where is the oil sensor on a 2006 Toyota Tacoma V6 engine? I need to tie into it to provide oil to an additional oil filter.

    I found the oil sensor. It's at the front of the engine. I placed a 1/8 inch pipe into the hole and placed a T. I then put the the oil sensor into one end and the oil feed line to the Amsoil bypass filter in the other. Since the oil is not forced through it, the flow is fine. The bypass oil filter is suppose to filter objects down to 2 to 5 microns. It is my understanding that a factory oil filter filters only down to around 20 microns preventing only blockage of the engine oil journals but not wear and tear on the bearings and rings. However, I am not an expert. This is just what I've been told. I invite an expert opinion with qualifications. :)

There is not enough flow at the sensor for a second oil filter. The sensor is at a dead end in the oil gallery. I recommend that you persue other options here. If you are concerned about oil contamination, don't be. There is nothing better than the factory filter...Look into adding more oil capacity; Look into an engine oil cooler; there is really no need for a second filter.

This is the 2001-2012 Toyota Tacoma wiring diagram, Toyota Tacoma IAT (Intake Air Temperature) Sensor Location and the Toyota Tacoma MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor Location, also included is a pinout of the sensor. You are likely installing a performance chip or a cold air intake kit for increased HP (Horsepower). You will want to be sure to disconnect the car battery before adding performance products.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner, 2WD, 4.0L V6, 5-speed Automatic has a severe vibration from the speed of 20 mph to 50 mph, then the vibration will slightly deminish.

Is it the engine vibrating or the car? If its the car itself it sounds like u need to have the tires checked & balanced.

It is mounted in the transmission bellhousing. If you can follow the engine control computer wires, they will lead you to the side of the bellhousing that the crankshaft sensor is on. If you have purchased the sensor, then it will be easy to spot as you will have an idea of what you are looking for.

Engine light is on--2000 V6 tacoma prerunner. read out says the problem is a cam positon sensor. How difficult is this to replace your self? Thank

Usually this is a bit of dirt in the engine plugging the oil port that supplies pressure to the variable valve timing control cam. Change your engine oil every 3000 miles and maybe switch brands. I had this problem on my Matrix until I switched to Castrol GTX 5W30 that cleaned the oil port right out.
