You don't have a tranny plug. The oil plug is on the oil pan for the engine, and the transmission is just a pan.

What does it mean if I have oil on spark plugs on a 1997 Toyota Tacoma 4 cylinder?

It could be a worn valve seal or even worn piston ring allowing oil to enter the combustion chamber from the sump. Check if your exhaust is blowing smoke when engine is warm.

Toyota's have a sealed system and must be taken to the dealer. I remember a few years back we had this issue..

2000 tacoma 6-cyl, 120k miles, just developed knocking in motor when running at 500 rpm. scoping indicates noise in crank case. regular oil changes every 5k miles and easy driving style. any ideas?

You may have a sticky lifter in the engine. Your local auto parts store should have an oil additive to pour in the crankcase to help deal with this issue and this could occur due to economically priced oil used instead of a higher quality oil like Castrol or Mobil 1. I would also use a high mileage oil on oil changes - they have a seal swell added that will recondition engine seals and gaskets. Failing that I would take it to a reputable mechanic to see if you need a valve adjustment.

Replace the antifreeze with Toyota Lifetime, change the diff fluid, some dealers recommend tranny flush at 100K, change the serpentine belt. Be prepared, you have WS tranny fluid, the flush is $200+

Where is the oil drain plug? How do you distinguish it from the transmission plug?

the oil drain plug is the 14mm bolt on the bottom of the the big black oil pan. on a tacoma the oil pan is more in the front and tranny sits behind motor- therefore trans pan if further back. I also think the tranny drain plug is more of an alan hex head type bolt. If the fluid comes out red you got the wrong one.

How do you refill the auto transmission on a 2006 Tacoma? There is apparently no auto trans dipstick?

You can't, you just have to hope that your check engine light will come on if your Tranny fluid gets too low.

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.
