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.

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.

TOYOTA COROLLAS SUFFER PISTON RINGS CAUSING THEM TO BURN OIL BUT YOU DONT JUST REPLACE PISTON RINGS AS THERES A MODIFIED BLOCK ALSO IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK YOUR INLET MANIFOLD FOR OIL AS THERE IS A CHECK VALVE (BREATHER) WHICH ALOWS OIL INTO THE INLET MANIFOLD CAUSING RAPID OIL BURNING I WOULD GET THIS PROBLEM SORTED ASAP AS SOON YOUR EM LIGHT WILL COME ON DAMAGE YOUR CATALYST AND IT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED

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!
