Toyota Tundra Maintenance Schedule: 10,000-Mile Maintenance

In addition to the above maintenance, when you reach the 10,000-mile or 12-month marker, you’ll also need to replace your engine oil and oil filter.

Your engine oil is responsible for lubricating the moving parts under the hood, reducing friction, and preventing overheating. It’s also responsible for filtering out dirt, dust, and other debris that could otherwise cause corrosion and other damage to the engine of your Tundra.
