Question about Toyota Camry

Open Question

I dropped the plastic Oil filter housing to my 4cyl 2014 Camry. When I reassemble it, does the cupped disc go in cupped upward toward the engine or down.

The internals consist of a perforated metal cylinder, cylinder holder, metal spring, and a cupped disc.

SOURCE: 1994 camry oil leak

Before you start removing the oil pan to reseal it, you need to rectify the leak between the oil cooler and the block. Interestingly enough, (in a pinch) the rubber gasket from the (genuine) Toyota oil filter is the same gasket that seals the cooler to the block. Aftermarket filter gaskets will NOT work. Remove the filter, carefully take off the gasket, remove the oil cooler, take off the old rubber gasket, and put the oil filter's gasket onto the cooler, and bolt it all back up. (You should buy this gasket from a dealer) Clean the area real good with cleaner, and THEN check for additional leaks.
Hope this helps, and THNAKS for choosing FixYa. Please feel free to comment back if you need any additional info. The graciousness of a FIxYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter

If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.

Not unless you can reach it from the top. make sure you put some WD-40 on the bolts so they come off easy next time.

Where is the oil filter

The engine oil filter can be in a variety of places depending on the model and type. Sometimes they are direct on the lower engine block and sometimes fitted to an oil filter head which could be part of the oil pump housing or could be bolted direct to the cylinder block.

Some filters are horizontal and some hang down and some point upwards and are accessed from the top. Some filters are canister or spin-on types and some are replaceable paper elements in a removable and reusable metal or plastic bowl or container.

1987 Ford Ranger: Determining cause of oil leak into and then from air filter pan

It is possible that too much oil is in the engine, check dip dtick to make sure oil is at correct level. Other possibilites include some sort of blockage inside the engine, this is likely to be shown if an oil presure gauge is fitted and reading high. Sorry can't be more helpful.

Location of oil filter in 2010 Camry LE 4 cylinder

First of all you will need to purchase the paper filter that also comes complete with a small plastic tool. Drain the engine oil as normal until all of the engine oil has drained and put back and tighten the drain plug.Underneath the engine you will see an aluminum housing that has a nut on the very bottom of it and above that a place to fit a large socket wrench ( About 2 inches in diameter) you can purchase this socket at a discount car parts shop. this socket has a 1/2 inch attachment for a socket wrench. First remove the very bottom plug and only a little engine oil will drain as in order to get the rest of the engine oil out you will need that small plastic device that comes with the new oil filter. this plastic tool is what opens up a valve inthe oil filter body to let the rest of the engine oil out of the canister. After all the oil has been removed then use the oil filter canister tool to remove the aluminum body from the engine. With the removal of the body the replacable filter will be inside of the body as it is released from the engine. Note that there will also be 2 o-rings that are part of the filter kit. the large o-ring will be the replacement for the one that is around the thread area on the aluminum bodyn ( To seal the canister to the engine ). The second one is for the small plug that you removed first. After that you will need to refill th engine oil to the correct level. Dont forget to only use SYNTHETIC OIL.

Where is the oil filter located on the 4cyl and is there any do's and don't about changing the filter? I think I located it and it looks like it has a plastic cap that may screw off and is a cartridge...

It will be a round cylinder shaped device that is located on the bottom side of the engine. No there is not really nothing to worry about when changing them but just be sure to get the correct size. Also when you change the oil if you have been running standard oil then DO NOT CHANGE TO SYNTHETIC, you will lock the engine up, or cause your cam, rod and main bearings to wear excessively.

Where is the oil filter located on my 2010 V6 Camry

Not to be mean... But if you can't locate the oil filter cartrige housing, which is located beside the engine, toward the top side of the engine bay, with the round cap that has a oil can stamped on it... Maybe you should have a certified Toyota mechanic service your car. Not all cars have a visible "Spin on" traditional oil filter. Newer Toyotas (and many other new cars) have oil filtering cartriges. They are in filter housings and can be accessed via a spin on cap. (this is not the oil fill cap typically found on the valve cover. Do not fill the engine oil through the oil filter housing.) Removing these can make a large mess, requires the replacement of at LEAST one critical o-ring, and should be done AFTER the oil has been drained. Good luck
