I'm scared some dude leased it and never did an oil change on it. They did an oil change on it before selling it to me, replaced the tires and windshield and thats all I know. How bad could it be if this guy never did an oil change? I know Toyotas are bulletproof and maybe this guy just did them himself in his garage, but I'm talking worst case scenario...

Thanks!
I never go to dealer for oil changes on anything i've owned.
Did you look through all the owners manuals for a place where he may have written down the maintenance possibly?

My truck won't show much at the dealer because I do my own oil changes. I let them do 1 of the free ones and they made a mess. Pretty sure they didn't change the filter. Never again, I'll just do it myself.

Ever consider an oil analysis from a company like Blackstone Labs?

Those samples can usually give a ballpark idea if a problem might be coming down the line. (High sodium in an oil sample can mean a coolant leak, high copper can be a ring issue, etc). The folks over at Bob is the Oil guy forums can do a better job explaining than I can.

Might be worth looking into.

Spilled milk at this point. Just take care of it from this point forward. You'll be fine.

Check the maintenance manual see if they wrote anything in it. I document every oil change. Every 2500 miles. I changed mine in between the dealer oil changes. All written down in the book. I would run like the wind from a truck with no oil change history.
