Regular maintenance on your Toyota Tundra is essential for long-term health. Think of this maintenance like your annual physicals with your healthcare provider. Both are used to determine baseline health and identify potential issues as soon as they arise.

Each time you drive 5,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first, there are a handful of maintenance items you’ll want to perform:
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.
Each time you travel 30,000 miles, there’s additional maintenance needed on your Tundra. The extra maintenance at this milestone includes needing to re-torque the propeller shaft bolt.
You also need to inspect several components of your truck. Some parts that need inspection include:
Continue with this maintenance plan throughout the lifespan of your Tundra.
In addition to the above maintenance, you may need to perform additional upkeep depending on how and where you drive, also known as special driving conditions. You must perform this upkeep every 5,000 miles.
Off Roading on Dirt Roads
If you spend a lot of time off roading on dirt paths, additional maintenance may include:
Towing with Your Toyota Tundra
From camping and fishing to other outdoor activities that require towing, you’ll need to perform these additional maintenance steps:
Short Commutes in Cold Weather
Do you find yourself taking short trips of less than five miles in frigid temperatures—below 32 degrees Fahrenheit? If so, every 5,000 miles you’ll need to replace your engine oil and oil filter.
Deliveries and Idling
Your Toyota Tundra is a versatile truck. Not only is it great for casual commutes and weekend trips, but it’s also great for getting work done. If you use your Tundra for long-distance trips, rideshares, extensive idling, door-to-door deliveries, and more, you’ll need to change your engine oil and oil filter every 5,000 miles.
