    The oil filter is a "cartridge-type" filter. It is under the engine, in a cylindrical metal housing. The housing is removed, and the cartridge is then removed. Please respond if you want a picture.

Under the engine in the front you will see an aluminum cover.There is a square hole that fits a 3/8 ratchet remove this first.The new filter comes with a drain adapter that snaps in the hole under the cover.This lets the oil in the housing drain.Then take a oil filter cup wrench or a big channel lock to twist of the larger portion.Then change the filter and o-ring and reinstall.Make sure the o-ring on the square drive cover is there also

Where is the oil filter located on 2010 camy?


The oil filters on the 2010 Camry product are no longher 'spin-on' filters. The new style of filter being used are the 'cartridge' type. The filter is in an aluminum cylinder, under the engine. Toyota recommends the use of a special tool to remove the cartridge cylinder. Also note that you need to use the exact oil specified for your car. If you do not, your variable valve timing will not work properly, and you check engine light will come on. If the car specifies to use full-synthetic, you should not use anything else.

Location of oil filter


on the camry with the 2.4L inline 4, the oil filter is located just behind the plastic shield which extends below the front of the car... it will be on the passenger side, and is best removed with the variety of oil filter wrench which attaches to a ratchet (custom fit super graphite from shcuck's is the best I've found). I DO NOT recommend you use a strap type, or serrated jaw type wrench on this car, or you WILL have to remove the plastic shield, and waste a lot of time in the process.
On a camry equipped with the 3.0L V6, the oil filter is on the driver's side of the engine - mounted sideways. you SHOULD be able to get it through the driver's side wheel well. You WILL spill oil getting this one off - it's almost impossible not to, so be prepared for this. I'd personaly reccomend the type of wrench that attaches to a ratchet for this filter, but a strap or serated jaw type might work as well.
Hope this helps

Where is the oil filter located on my 2010 V6 Camry


Not to be mean... But if you can't locate the oil filter cartrige housing, which is located beside the engine, toward the top side of the engine bay, with the round cap that has a oil can stamped on it... Maybe you should have a certified Toyota mechanic service your car. Not all cars have a visible "Spin on" traditional oil filter. Newer Toyotas (and many other new cars) have oil filtering cartriges. They are in filter housings and can be accessed via a spin on cap. (this is not the oil fill cap typically found on the valve cover. Do not fill the engine oil through the oil filter housing.) Removing these can make a large mess, requires the replacement of at LEAST one critical o-ring, and should be done AFTER the oil has been drained. Good luck

1997 4Runner oil quantity


For a V6 # Liter engine, you will use a galon and almost half (that is about 6 Liters of oil). I use a Toyota camry V6 3 Liter engine that shares the same engine with the Toyota 4Runner.

2009 toyota corolla,location of oil filter


If this is the V6 engine, your oil filter should be a canister type filter, it should be located on the passenger side, underneath at the front of the engine. You should see what looks like a black cap (about the size of an oil filter) your oil filter is located inside this canister. Hope this helps.

The oil filter is no longer a "spin-on" type filter. Toyota has changed to the "cartridge" type filters that are in a cylindrical housing on the engine. You need to remove the filter housing to access the cartridge. Make sure that you replace the o-rings that come out with the cartridge filter with the new ones supplied in the new filter box. To reset the light, follow these directions:

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it IN.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..

Now release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.
