Default Oil change 2009 tacoma

I`m getting ready to do the first oil change on my 2009 tacoma. Is
there anything special to know about this or is it just routine? The
dealer uses pennzoil 5-30 .Is that the correct wt? Also I
cannot find a chilton or haynes repair manual for this truck. Where can
I get one? Thanks for any info.

The owners manual that came with the truck has a section on maintenance.
It will give you the proper oil weights for different temperature
ranges. 5W-30 is good for most climates except for severe cold and
severe hot temperatures. Use what the manual tells you. As far as the
brand of oil I use 5W-30 Castrol in my V-6 1999 Tacoma but have used
Quaker State as well as Pennzoil in my 4 banger VWs and old Honda Civics
in years past.

It cost me over $200.00 but I purchased the factory sevice manuals some
time back. They have more than paid for themselves.

Hope you enjoy your '09 as much as I have my '99 Tacoma.
