Does your dealer discount the oil change accordingly or do you end up paying
for the dino oil?

Toyota of RIchardson, bless 'em, does not charge me for the oil. $6.95
to do the work.

Thanks, Richard, I'll see what my dealer says.

If you ever pull an engine apart you'll see all kinds of stuff in there the
filter didn't catch. Some engines, trannys, and rear ends even have magnets
on the drain plugs and you see all kinds of metal on them. Toyota was known
for sludge pockets in their engines if you've been around them long enough.
Besides, the input screen to the oil pump filter usually keeps most of the
larger debris from ever hitting the filter. It's just good insurance.
