Since there is no mechanical stress on an oil plug, torque is not really an issue. Make sure the threads and seal/washer are clean, and snug it down, then give it a comfortable tweak so that it is tight.

How To Change Oil and Oil Filter on Range Rover Sport or Land Rover LR3

  • Place an oil drain pan below the oil filter and drain plug and unscrew the oil filter.
  • Lubricate the rubber seal with clean oil and install the new filter. Tighten to 13 foot-pound torque.
  • Remove drain plug in the oil pan and drain the oil. Catch the oil in the drain pan. After draining the oil install and tighten the drain plug to 18 foot-pound torque.

Is it possible for me to change the engine oil as im a new timer on these situations thank you.


"anything is possible"



depending on your vehicle's year make model and engine size, the drain plug and oil filter may or may not be hard to get to



today's era of youtube videos and car owners forums makes it easier than before



look it up to see if it's easy to get your oil filter and drain plug for your car/ truck



SAFETY first! use JACK STANDS & don't rely on the jacks by themselves to hold your vehicle up ~ i've known a neighbor and a co-worker who almost got crushed to death



have backup tools to remove your oil filter in case the previous person didn't lube the o-ring and/or over tighten the filter. i have a strap wrench or correct end-cap oil wrench for my vehicles



depending on how the oil filter is mounted, i usually add some oil right into the filter to get it pre-charged while i also lube that rubber seal/o-ring on the filter....



some say to use NEW oil drain plug gaskets before you torque it down (to specs) each plug has a torque spec; but i got away with re-using it a few times before i replace the gasket.



I spin the drain plug on by hand first to avoid cross-threading ~ then use torque wrench. you don't want this plug to loosen while you're driving on the highway or you don't want to overtighten it and have the threads on the oil pan to strip on you...



do not overfill your vehicle's oil capacity ~ the crankshaft will whip it up to foam, causing your engine bearings to starve for oil



so look up the torque spec for your drain plug, and oil capacity

What is the torque for oil plug for 2010 Toyota Venza?


Oil Drain Torque Specs Toyota Nation Forum Toyota Car and Truck Forums

The blog above lists 27 - 30 ft. lbs. torque for the drain plug. As someone in the blog stated, 30 Ft. Lbs. sounds excessive , and I agree. . You can torque the drain plug , but it's not critical to do so. Just snug the plug down. Do not over tighten the plug. It may strip out and it will distort the gasket.
