    i found the oi filter housing but as i tried to get the cap off it broke and damaged my 65mm wrench i finished breaking it so i could remove the filter and i see that the cap is a sleeve with a threaded collar at the bottom my question is can that be removed with an easy out or another extraction tool. i really need to complete this as you can imagine. any thing you can do would be most helpful. i am tire of toyota hiding repair information from its customers. thank you very much

Welcome to Fixya

There is a housing for the oil filter. Please see procedure below:

1. Jack you car up and place jack stands under the car. Get under the car and remove the bolt to release the oil into a pan. Using the 65mm, 14 flute oil wrench cap, loosen the oil filter housing. This will be pretty tight. Make sure and use a 65mm, not a combination oil wrench cap.
2. Once you have the oil filter housing removed, take out the old filter cartridge and old o-ring, which goes around the end of the oil filter housing. Wipe the oil filter housing clean.
3. Slide the new oil filter cartridge into the housing. Lube the new o-ring with new oil. Slide the o-ring over the housing threads into place. Wipe the engine clean where the filter housing connects. Start to screw the filter housing onto the engine by hand. Once you cannot turn it more, use the ratchet and screw till tight.
4. Replace the drain plug and fill with oil.

Thank you for using Fixya!

    this is only a suggestion. try to use a flat screwdriver and try to break the collar by using a hammer. Be careful not to puncture the thread of the oil filter.

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.
