i put 5w-30 in my alltrac. castrol sytec blend.

if i were you, i would use 5w30/10w-30, doesnt have to be synthetic, and yes toyota oil filter.

Your oil cap on your engine will tell you what viscosity to use, IE 5W30/10W30.
Your engine takes 5W30 I believe.
Toyota [up here at least] uses Mobil1.
You don't need sythetic. Regular is fine for you.
Won't hurt of course....
And yes, use a Toyota filter.

Wizzards, you should be using 10W 30.
That's what your engine tolerances are set up for, not 5W30....
