The first thing you need to know when it comes to your Tundra’s engine oil is how much you should keep in it.

What kind of oil does a 2007 Toyota Tundra 5.7 need?

Now that you know how much oil to put in your Tundra’s engine, it’s time to learn what type you should use. Toyota recommends SAE 0W-20 synthetic oil with an ILSAC (International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee) Certification Mark for your 2007 Tundra.
When it comes to brands, Toyota recommends their own
Toyota Genuine Motor Oil
. If you can’t find this, though, any full synthetic 0W-20 oil will do. The brand is less important than the viscosity (0W-20), and the type (synthetic). 
Full synthetic oils contain a variety of additives that help condition your engine and keep it clean. It may be cheaper to go with synthetic blends or conventional oil, but it’ll only be cheaper in the short term. Engine wear and sludge build up can lead to costly repairs, and they’ll shorten your truck’s longevity. 
You’ll also have to change your oil more often if you use conventional oil or a synthetic blend—meaning you’ll have to buy it more often.

How often to change the oil on a 2007 Toyota Tundra 5.7

You’ll probably be surprised to learn that Toyota only recommends
oil changes
for your Tundra every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. But this recommendation only holds if you’re using the full synthetic oil recommended by the manufacturer. If you choose to go with a blend or conventional oil, you’ll need to change your oil every 3–5,000 miles—twice as often as when you use synthetics. 
No matter how often you change your oil, you need to be sure you regularly
check your engine oil
levels between those changes. Checking at least once a month should do it, but feel free to check it more often just to be safe. 
Not sure how to check your oil? Here’s what you do:
  • First make sure your truck’s on level ground and the engine is warm.
  • Remove the dipstick. It’s yellow, and it may have a picture of an oil can on it.
  • Wipe the dipstick on a rag.
  • Reinsert the dipstick without screwing it in.
  • Check that the oil level registers between the upper and lower limits marked on the dipstick.
Checking your oil isn’t only about making sure you’ve got good levels. You should also actually look at the oil itself for warning signs that you’re due (or overdue) for an oil change. These include:

How to change your oil 

These days, we’re all looking for ways to save a little cash. One of those ways is to skip the mechanic and perform your own oil changes. In most cases, it’s helpful to put your car on jack stands for an oil change, but your
Tundra’s ground clearance
makes this more of an option than a necessity for you. 
What you will need are a few
essential car tools and supplies
  • 8 quarts of 0W-20 synthetic oil and a replacement filter 
  • A replacement washer for the oil drain bolt
  • A drain pan
  • A socket wrench
  • A filter wrench
  • A rag
Just like checking your oil, you need to change your oil with a warm engine. If you’ve been out driving, you should let it cool just until you can handle things without getting burned. If it’s been sitting, start it up and let it run for about 5 minutes. Once the oil is warm, it’ll drain easily and completely. 
With your engine nice and warm and your truck on a level surface and turned off, it’s time to get to work:
  • Make sure your engine is off and your truck is in park.
  • Remove the oil fill cap. This will be near the dipstick, and it’ll be marked either with the words “engine oil” or a picture of an oil can, or both.
  • Get underneath the engine and place the drain pan on the ground under the oil drain bolt.
  • Here’s where you may get messy: remove the oil drain bolt and washer.
  • Remove the old oil filter, then sit back and wait until the oil is completely drained.
  • Install the new filter.
  • Replace the oil drain bolt using a new washer and tighten it to 29 lb-ft.
  • Refill the engine with your new oil and replace the fill cap. 
Before you head down the road, start up your Tundra and let it run for a few minutes, then check the oil to make sure you’ve put in the right amount. Top off if necessary, and you’re done!
Don’t forget to dispose of your old engine oil properly though. This is an environmental hazard, so you can’t just toss it in the trash or pour it out on the ground. Instead, you should pour it into a sealable plastic or metal container and take it to a recycling center. If you’re unsure where to find a recycling center, head over to
