Loosen the filter a little first then slip a plastic bag over it. Remove the filter being careful to keep the bag around the filter and under the connection to let the oil drain in the bag. Oh and drain the oil first before removing the filter.

The oil was recently changed on my 2008 Toyota Avalon Touring model and it now shows the oil level as about 1/2 inch above the full line. Will it damage the vehicle to leave it overfilled like this?


Overfilling with oil is never a good idea as it increases the load on the oil pump, however half inch is nothing to worry about the car will burn this off over a month or so.

If you are concerened though you can just loosen the oil filter, this will allow some oil out without you having to drop all the oil again. loosen then tighten back up once eniough is out. also you know you should only ever dip your oil when the car is cold as when hot you do not get a true reading.
Hope that helps

I'll have to be more specific. 2010 toyota camry oil filter

Go to Google and enter "youtube toyota camry oil change." This is a fairly good video on how to address the oil change procedure that should be similar to your (and my) 2010 Camry LE, 2.5L; not exact, but you'll get the idea. Also, Google "Avalon oil change pdf" and click on the '05/'06 Avalon item to get a printable version that should also give help/hints for your 2010 2.5L. Now all we have to do is get permission from Toyota to waive the requirement for "only" 0W20 synthetic ($$$) in favor of either less expensive and more readily available 5W20 or 0W30 and extend the change interval from a very low 5000 miles to something more reasonable like 7500 miles or, better still, 10K! I've written to them to see what kind of answer they'll give, but am not hopeful of relief on that front. By the way, Lisle says their filter removal tool Pt. No. 54930 is the correct one and should be available from O'Reilly's Auto Parts; if not on shelf, should be orderable. Good Luck.

Where is the oil filter housing located on a 2009 Avalon and how is it disassembled?

One of (3) places. if you do not see a filter or filter housing underneath the car, it may be on top of the engine. if you still do not see on top of the engine, remove the plastic engine cover and find the oil filter housing. If all else fails, get a string flashlight and repeat all the steps...I sometimes find that I overlooked the filter because Toyota filters are "black" in color.

Oil seal on oil filter pushed out, stop oil everywhere 1.9 dci 03

need a new tensioner by the sound of it ,but it has nothing to do with the oil pressure,if seals blowing out on the plastic filter housing then put some diesel in with the oil and a squirt of washing up liquid and run for about 20 mins then change oil and filter again and see what happens
