Thanks very much for posting. This is my first car with a cartridge filter so I was a bit confused.

Which torque wrench did you use?

Hey I've been trying to find a micrometer torque wrench that is cheap and reliable. Which torque wrench did you use to tighten the drain plug and the oil filter cap in the instruction?

For the filter cap tool, I used a 1/2" torque wrench along with a 15/16" socket. For the drain plug, I used a 3/8" torque wrench.

Can you use a regular screw on filter instead of the cartridge? I went to my local auto parts store here in Canada and the guy gave me the screw on filter. I have a 2006 Rav 4 Sport.

Did you use a 3/8 adapter to 1/2 inch socket?

Did you buy a 3/8" 15/16 socket? I meant if I have a 3/8" torque wrench but a 1/2" 15/16 socket. If I use a 3/8" to 1/2" adapter, will that affect the torque some how?

I am thinking about buying an adapter set because I have all these sockets and wrenches accumulated over the years and they don't match.

Not on a V-6. Go look at the picture on the first post in this thread for the V-6 filter.
