My sister dropped off her 1999 Rav4 to be stored. Just wanted to verify the oil drain plug location, my first time changing oil. Is it located on the passenger side of where the exhaust pipe is visible on the underside of the car? The plug I am describing is angled down and towards the rear of the car.

If I recall, it's either a 12mm or a 14mm. I had to tighten mine, I noticed the last oil change the mechanic didn't tighten it enough, and I was getting some residue around there... Sad thing is it was a friend's shop... goes to show you even have to doublecheck your own friends work... :roll:

Oil Drain Plug

Mensajero,

Just wondering why you are recomending to change the oil drain plug every three oil changes?
