SOURCE: 2006 Toyota Tacoma V6 engine oil sensor location

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.

SOURCE: 2008 Toyota Tacoma Excessive brake pedal

Your dealer is not lying to you.
All of the Toyota product line with ABS has this phenomenon. What Toyota has done is incorporate "Brake Force Distribution" into the braking system. What that means is there is now a sensor on the brake pedal/brake rod, going to the master cylinder. The sensor measures how FAST you press on the brake pedal. This activates the ABS pump, and supplies more brake fluid, harder, to reduce the time needed, such as a "panic stop"; the pedal travel is much longer than you are used to, because of the way they have to measure the speed of the rod being depressed. In actuality, this system is much better than the old system, as it also prevents wheel drag. It just takes a while to get used to. Really, there is nothing to worry about, I explain this same thing to my customers every week.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

SOURCE: WHAT KIND OF SYNTHETIC OIL SHOULD I USE IN A 2001

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

In all actuality, synthetic oil is not going to do very much for you in your truck, if you are looking for 'higher fuel mileage'.

I have customers that swear by synthetics, but they do not get any more mileage than from conventional motor oil. I also have customers that have the AMSOIL products in the engine, the transmission, the differentials, the transfer case, etc, and that which they were led to believe (better gas mileage) was a sham.

Now, if you vehicle had variable valve timing, synthetic oil is the ticket, However, you do not have VVT.

What is the 'best' synthetic?
We use Mobil One here. Nothing else. I have not found anything 'better'.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance. I hope that my input helps you out. Have a great day!

1998 toytoa miss fireing on # 2 cylinder


White smoke is caused by 2 things. First water, second anti-freeze. One of these are mixing in cylinder 2.
First check your radiator levels and see if it is slowly draining.
Get an oil change. If it looks like a milk shake then you have anti-freeze mixing with your oil which would point toward a head gasket.

Second, check for excess water. Make sure your plugs are tight and boots are seated fully. Check the plug in cylinder 2 and see how it is burning. White(Too Hot), black(Too Rich), just right...

Lastly, check your exhaust manifold for cracks. The 98 tacomas have a cast manifold that WILL crack eventually. Mine cracked at 180K. You may just have water entering through the manifold near cylinder 2. You will have to remove the heat shield to get a proper look.

My 1996 toyota tacoma still over heats even after I changed the thermostat


Unfortunately, that first solution is spam.Check your coolant for any signs of oil or the odor of exhaust fumes. Check your oil (dipstick) for any signs of water contamination which can make the oil look cloudy, milky or like Jergens lotion if severe enough.You could have blown headgasket that has failed between a cylinder and a coolant path.This will cause hot gases to be directly leaked into the coolant path and cause overheating regardless of load conditions or ambient temperature.
A properly done compression check (checking for excessive bleed-down of pressure) will confirm this.
