    Does the 2017 Tacoma V6 have a spin on or cartridge type oil filter and where is it located? I did not see either when I took a quick look underneath but did I also did not crawl all the way under as I should have.

    It's underneath in a housing attached to the engine. You need a special service tool to remove the housing cap. I'll look for pics.

    Yes, I believe you have to remove the skid.

    I'm curious. I don't have a Tacoma yet, but what is the advantage to using a cartridge type oil filter versus a spin on type? Seems like a bunch more trouble to change your oil and filter. There must be a reason why Toyota went to the cartridge type. Any ideas?

    Is that because of demographics or my intelligence.
