2012 3.5L V6 Rav4 -- pre-load oil filter when changing
I'm just about to attempt the first oil change on my 3.5 V6 Rav4.
I've read through the how-to guide on the forums here (cheers to the bloke who did it makes a difficult job seem do-able).
normally when I do a filter change with a spin-on filter I've always been taught to 1/3 to 1/2 fill the filter w/ fresh oil to help with oil pressurisation on the first start after the change.
Now, I just wanted to double check that this is still the go with this new(er) type of filter. Is it still possible to "pre-load" the filter cartridge with oil?
