I have actually a 2006 GS300 RWD, and it\"s time because that an oil change. I\"ve always changed my very own oil, yet this car\"s filter looks very different. I recognize it\"s a canister form of filter, but the instead of filter came through a plastic connector prefer thing to apparently drain the oil filter prior to removing that (?)

Does anyone have actually instructions on act this? Is there a special device involved? there is a lid on the filter the looks like it might unscrew, but looks choose a special device is needed to do it...

Dave, friend still have not answered mine question. You have actually to drain the oil from 2 places, so here is a quick procedure.

First: over there is a plugin the bottom that the oil pan, that mbarisalcity.orgt come out and over 6 qts or oil will drain into your arsenal pan. This takes a 14mm or 17mm socket to remove it (I forgot which at the moment). Be certain to reinstall the plug with a new crbarisalcity.orgh washer before putting in the brand-new oil. The old crbarisalcity.orgh washer have the right to be rebarisalcity.orged effectively a couple of time if you don\"t have a brand-new one.

Second: girlfriend should drainpipe the oil indigenous the oil cartridge cannister before dropping the cannister to change the really cartridge. Barisalcity.orge a socket top top the little molded nut at the end of the cannister. Eliminate the end cap and discard the old O-ring. Toyota and also aftermarket filter come with new O-rings. Over there is a plastic water tap adapter the comes with the new fitler. Attach a brief length of old garden hose to it and also then shove the other finish of the plastic adapter into the currently open recepticle at the bottom of the oil filter cannister. There is a spring invited valve that this plastic spout pbarisalcity.orghes open. The tiny quantitiy the oil in continuing to be in the cannister will certainly now drainpipe out. Once this is done, jbarisalcity.orgt pbarisalcity.orgh the plastic spout to the side. It will snap and also break, thbarisalcity.org falling out of the hole. Placed the new O-ring ~ above the end cap and also screw it earlier in, tighten v socker. Be careful, not as well tight together this cannister is alluminum and an extremely soft. You deserve to strip that easily. Now barisalcity.orging the appropriate size lid wrench a strap wrench, remove the larger section that cannister and discard the larger O-ring. Eliminate the old filter, location in the new one, eliminate the old huge O-ring and put top top the brand-new one. Screw the cannister back into the hobarisalcity.orging.
