08 toyota sienna van and oil filter change

Is this the first year that toyota used a canister oil filter with a slip in element? What kind of special tool do you use, the instructions said use a special service tool? What can I use in place of this special tool? Do you have to change the drain plug gasket every time?

Where can I buy a repair service manual for a 08 toyota sienna van?

Oil filter location on 2011 sienna


It uses a cartridge type filter, the filter is inside an aluminum housing in front just behind the radiator on the engine block, you will need a special filter socket to remove it, the dealers have it as well as most autoparts stores.You will see a 1/2" square hole, turning it will not remove the filter housing, you need a socket that fits on the 3" or so housing cap.

How many quarts does the sienna 2006 needs when perfoming oil cha


Exactly five quarts to do an oil change on this van assuming you are also replacing the oil filter.
How long between oil changes is typically recommended to be 5000 miles by Toyota. The van's service reminder light comes on at 5000 miles just for this purpose. To increase that interval is your choice.

Oil change recommandation for 08 toyota sienna


Every 3,000 miles or every 3 months, which ever comes first.
If you need the type of oil, look in the owners manual that's in the glove box, that will show what type of oil to use.

Oil and filter changing for 08 sienna. How complicated is it?


You still have to drain the engine oil from the drain plug in the oil pan, and I recommend replacing the drain plug gasket.
If you buy a filter from Toyota, it actually comes with instructions on exactly what to do. There is a 3/8" recess in the bottom of the filter housing, when you put a 3/8" extension and a ratchet in this and remove it, there should be a plastic piece that comes with the filter to pop into the bottom of the housing and drain the oil. replace the o-ring and reinstall the housing drain plug.

You can get a filter-cup tool from Pep Boys or local auto parts tools sections that will fit the filter housing. Use the cup with a ratchet and extension to remove the filter housing. replace the filter cartridge and the o-ring. Make sure to lubricate o-ring, they will snag! Reinstall and add 6.4 qts of oil
