Question about 2007 Toyota RAV4
I would like to change the oil in my 2007 Rav4. The owners manual provides no procedure to properly accomplish this. I have change oil in enough vehicles and machines to know that it is not always as simple as taking the plug out, screwing off the filter, screwing on the new, putting the plug back in and adding the oil.
Where to I find a procedure or is it just that simple?
I just did my 2007 RAV4 4WD 4 cylinder. It's that simple.
The oil plug is pretty easy to get to, the filter is a few inches higher and a few inches to the front and a few inches toward the center of the car and must be accessed from underneath the car. Note that there is not much room to get to the filter and that it is much easier to use one of the socket type filter wrenches (the one that you use a 3/8 inch ratchet for. However, if the filter is on really tight, then you'll have to use a more traditional filter wrench, removing some of the screws on the front plastic skid sheet will give you a little more room to work.
The four cylinder takes about 4.2 quarts of oil, check the manual for the appropriate type.
Finish by resetting the "Maintenance Required" light with ODO stick trick that has been documented by others. Note that my RAV4 needed the "Trip A" varient.
