Hi, this should tell you all you need to know.

The oil filter is located immediately adjacent to the oil pan in a vertical recess. This will be on the passenger side half of the car. The black plastic underbody splash guard has a semi-circular cutout at its rear edge which will make finding the filter very easy the first time. The filter itself is vertically oriented which makes removing it a snap with a fluted cup-type oil filter wrench. Having it vertically oriented will minimize oil spillage, as the filter can be brought straight down after completely unscrewing it from its mounting boss.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Many thanks for using

My oil filter fell off my 2008 Camry SE, two months after an oil change. Ever heard of such a thing?

I just heard a similar issue this week. 2003 Rav4 went more than 500 miles after an oil change. It obviously isn't the person that changed your oil last (even though some people think so). If an oil filter is loose, it won't make it 50 miles, there is too much pressure. The oil will leak out quickly. For the car to go two months is obviously not a loose filter issue. Sounds like a spike in pressure was too much for the filter to hold. Good luck

Where is the oil filter located on 2010 camy?

The oil filters on the 2010 Camry product are no longher 'spin-on' filters. The new style of filter being used are the 'cartridge' type. The filter is in an aluminum cylinder, under the engine. Toyota recommends the use of a special tool to remove the cartridge cylinder. Also note that you need to use the exact oil specified for your car. If you do not, your variable valve timing will not work properly, and you check engine light will come on. If the car specifies to use full-synthetic, you should not use anything else.

Location of oil filter

on the camry with the 2.4L inline 4, the oil filter is located just behind the plastic shield which extends below the front of the car... it will be on the passenger side, and is best removed with the variety of oil filter wrench which attaches to a ratchet (custom fit super graphite from shcuck's is the best I've found). I DO NOT recommend you use a strap type, or serrated jaw type wrench on this car, or you WILL have to remove the plastic shield, and waste a lot of time in the process.
On a camry equipped with the 3.0L V6, the oil filter is on the driver's side of the engine - mounted sideways. you SHOULD be able to get it through the driver's side wheel well. You WILL spill oil getting this one off - it's almost impossible not to, so be prepared for this. I'd personaly reccomend the type of wrench that attaches to a ratchet for this filter, but a strap or serated jaw type might work as well.
Hope this helps

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

How to I replace the oil filter on a 2009 Toyota Camry V6 engine?

Under the engine in the front you will see an aluminum cover.There is a square hole that fits a 3/8 ratchet remove this first.The new filter comes with a drain adapter that snaps in the hole under the cover.This lets the oil in the housing drain.Then take a oil filter cup wrench or a big channel lock to twist of the larger portion.Then change the filter and o-ring and reinstall.Make sure the o-ring on the square drive cover is there also
