    My 2000 Tundra came with an improperly calibrated oil dipstick. They sent me a new one in the mail. Prior to replacing it, my truck took 7 quarts to full. After the dipstick change, 6.5 qts. - Lee

    Use the standard Ford filter (FL-1A) and it'll take 7 on the nose.

    READ THE OWNERS' MANUAL, it tell you in the back, tundras' always take 6.5 qts, WITH the toyota oil filter. 4runners' maybe different, gotta remember the oil pan may be designed different and may take more/less.

    Changed the oil it takes 6.5 quarts, says it in the owners manual.

    when you say Ford Filter "standard Ford filter (FL-1A)" is that the Fram numbers so I can look up the Fram filter and cross reference it to get a Mobil 1 Filter cause if that is an actual Ford OEM filter I really don't won't to put it on my truck

    what Fords have that filter

    The Fram number for the big Ford oil filter is PH8A. The Mobil 1 number for that filter is M1-301...but it's the wrong filter for the 4.7L V8. The internal bypass valve setting is too low, 8 psid, and the oil will bypass too much. The Mobil 1 M1-102 has a bypass setting of 12-14 psid, which is correct.

    Lots of folks think that a bigger oil filter is a virtue. There's no real need for a bigger filter, and if the specs are wrong, it's doing no good and maybe harm.
