2007 Toyota Tundra engine oil capacity

The 2007 Toyota Tundra engine oil capacity varies based on the specific model. The 2007 Tundra was available in three engine sizes, each which a different oil capacity:
  • 4.0-liter V6 engine: 5.5 qt or 5.2 L
  • 4.7-liter V8 engine: 6.6 qt or 6.2 L
  • 5.7-liter V8 engine: 7.4 qt or 7.0 L
All of these are the oil capacities with an oil filter change, which is recommended with every
oil change
. If you choose not to change the filter, the capacity is slightly less.
If you’re new to the world of oil changes, make sure you don’t confuse the engine displacement with the engine oil capacity. When an engine is referred to as a “4.0-liter engine” or “5.7-liter engine” this is the engine displacement (the total volume swept by the engine’s pistons). Oil capacity and engine displacement are not interchangeable. 

What kind of oil does a 2007 Toyota Tundra need?

Like the oil capacity, the recommended type of oil for your 2007 Tundra varies based on the engine type. For the 4.0-liter V6 and the 4.7-liter V8 engines, Toyota recommends using an SAE 5W-30 motor oil. For the 5.7-liter V8 engine, Toyota recommends an SAE 5W-20 or 0W-20 motor oil.
These numbers refer to the viscosity of the oil at low and high temperatures. “SAE” just stands for the Society of Automotive Engineers, the entity that rates the oils. The first number tells you how the oil behaves at 0°F (the W stands for winter). The second number tells you how the oil behaves at 212°F (standard operating temperatures).
Toyota doesn’t specify a need to use synthetic over conventional oil for the 2007 Tundra, however, it is generally accepted that synthetic oils will help your engine perform better and last longer. It is an especially good idea to use a high-mileage synthetic oil on older engines.

How often to change the oil on a 2007 Toyota Tundra

If you opt for conventional oil, you should change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or every six months according to Toyota's recommended maintenance schedule. However, one of the benefits of synthetic oil is that you can extend that mileage considerably. Experts recommend changing synthetic oil every 7,500 to 10,000 miles
We understand that these are some awfully large ranges, so the best recommendation is to check your oil once a month and look for these signs that it’s time for an oil change:
  • Black or dark brown oil. Clean oil should be a transparent amber or light brown
  • Oil that feels gritty or coarse
  • Strange new sounds coming from your engine
  • New smells, especially scents of smoke, burning, or oil
  • Changes in your truck’s performance like reduced power or fuel efficiency

How to change your oil

You now know what type of oil you need and how much to buy, all that’s left is to gather your tools and get started. You’ll need a socket wrench, a drain pan, a filter wrench, a new oil filter, and the appropriate amount and type of oil.
Start by running your engine for a few minutes to get it up to normal operating temperature, then turn off the engine, pop the hood, and follow these steps:
  • Remove the oil fill cap
  • Under the car, position the drain pan and remove the oil drain bolt and washer
  • Remove the old oil filter
  • Let the oil drain completely
  • Install the new filter
  • Replace the drain bolt with a new washer and tighten it to 29 lb-ft
  • Refill the engine with new oil and double-check the fill level
  • Replace the oil fill cap
Changing the oil shouldn't take long
, and it’s a good idea to turn on your car and let your engine run for about 30 seconds before you check the oil level. This will give you a more accurate measurement, and you’ll be able to top it off if necessary.
When you’re done, run the engine for a few minutes and check for any leaks. Finally, dispose of the old oil responsibly by bringing it to your local recycling center.
