Hello, it's just in front of the oil pan put up high you might need an extension on the ratchet to get to it. It is oriented vertically and contained within a metallic screw shell.

If you cant find it, you prob shouldn't be changing your oil (as you'll mess that up too)

How to tune up 2008 toyota rav 4


As the cars technology advances, the term tune up is fading and replacing with term Scheduled Maintenance Service. For most of the cars the time for these maintenance service is at 30K, 60K and 90K. You have to choices:
Service your car by yourself, or send to a dealer. Because maintenance services might be as basic as an oil change, air filter replacement, or more complicated as brake job, coolant system flush, brake fluid flush, transmission oil and filter change, and finally as complicated as, timing belt/chain replacement, if you decide to service by yourself, I recommend to Haynes Repair Manual, Specific for your car.
For your car Toyota provides all Scheduled Maintenance Services according to the miles on your car at:

Filter should be on drivers side of passenger side of car directly between the doors. To change shut off fuel pump relay switch in trunk, remove the clips and change the filter.

Where is the cabin air filter located in rav 4


Remove the contents of your glove box, and open it fully by pressing inward on the middle at both outer sides. Drop the box door down. Look into the dash area. You will see the tray that holds the Cabin Air Filter.

1st time changing oil filter on v6 2008 rav 4,


I just changed my oil on my RAV4 V6 and the first thing is you are not looking for the regular canister but a oil housing like on the old farm tractors. You just replace the inside filter cartridge. The canister is in front on the engine on the passenger side. Use a 3/8 socket to open the bottom and drain. Next use a oil filter cap wrench to remove the housing. Actully this is a less messy than my chevy and more "green."

Where is the oil filter air filter on rav 4 2003 plus how u you change air filter and spark plugs on rav 4 2003 ??


ok here goes
Since the engine air filter is pretty straight-forward I'll assume you're talking about the cabin air filter. I have a 2005 and assume it's the same for your 2003 so try looking behind the glove compartment. You should be able to get behind it by opening it and gently bending the plastic part that catches when it is all the way open so that it passes the catch. It will then swing the rest of the way down (you may want to remove the contents first) so that you can access the door to the filter.

The oil filter is located under the vehicle and unscrews from the oil pan.
