I know that on some of the Toyota Motors they Put the Filters on the Back side of the Motor Below the Firewall. Others were Right straight down in the Front at the Very Bottom.

2003 rav4; where do I empty the oil? where is the valve located?

It is not a valve but a bolt on the side of the oil pan. Dump it into a container that you can take to a recycler. Change the filter and fill it up with 4-5 qts fresh oil. Hope this helps.

Oil filter

On the V6, the filter is located on the bottom front of the engine on the passenger side. It is silver and looks like an oil filter cap wrench. It is not the traditional oil filter where you replace the entire unit. With this type you remove the cap, drain the oil, and replace the paper filter element and 2 gaskets.

to get the cap off use a standard 65mm-67mm filter wrench "end cap" that you stick on your 3/8" drive ratchet like this one..
