On my 92 ford pu, the plastic tabs snap into square holes in the bumper. They can be snapped out when there is no bolt in the hole by using a flat screwdriver & a little prying.

There are 2 lines coming from the back bottom of the tank. They are metal shielded lines and don't give much. They are up behind the differential. The lines are held on by two clips. You don't have to remove them, just turn. It takes a little strength to get the lines off but they will break loose. They are just push lines. Once you get them off, the tank will come right out. I just did it a week ago.

How to replace oil pan

5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.

  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    Location of oil filter

    The 2007 Tundra 5.7l engine doesn't have a spin on filter - it uses a replaceable paper cartridge within a permanent housing. Located under the skid plate on the front-left portion of the engine, the oil filter unit has two coolant hoses, a black plastic screw-in housing, and a large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it. The cartridge-type oil filter is in the housing.

    If equipped with a skid plate, access is accomplished by removing the 5 skid plate bolts, allowing the plate to swing down on integrated hangars (with the front plastic bumper skirt still attached). To completely remove the skid plate, three small screws holding it to the front plastic bumper skirt must also be removed.

    Toyotafilter kits contain a new filter cartridge, a plastic drain plug, and two O-rings. The drain plug is used to drain residual oil from the filter unit prior to removing the plastic screw-in housing. After removing the large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it, the plug simply snaps into the bottom of the plastic housing. The smaller of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw.

    Once drained, the plastic screw-in filter housing is removed using a filter wrench (Toyota special service tool). The larger of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw-in housing. VERY CLOSE ATTENTION must be paid in placing the new O-ring - failure to properly seat the new O-ring could result in a massive oil leak! The filter itself is currently only available from Toyota.
