DIY Oil Change

Certainly the dealer will handle the first couple of services. But I'm done with the dealer after that. I just took a peak at the underpinning underneath the car. Is the oil pan drain and filter above the small segment of underpinning? Can anybody who has done this explain a little about accessing the drain and filter.


Thanks
Randy

Pretty much the same as the '18 Camry.

Thank You. I figured that it couldn't be that difficult.

Isn't a Rav4 a canister oil filter, and needs a special wrench ?

'19 has a spin-on filter, it's not the same engine as was in the 4.3 and 4.4 that had the cartridge filter.

This is the correct oil filter right? Might as well order a few....will last for the next 5 years (change oil twice a year)
