Servicing the Aurion

Recommended Posts

Im looking at replacing oil filter & putting in semi synthetic oils myself...looking at the TSB (link below - page 4/5) it looks pretty complicated... Im used to - loosen drain plug, let drain, wrench off filter, oil rim of new one, tighten new filter, replace drain plug, fill with oil & run the engine.

The TSB for this one looks pretty complicated...has anyone done it and can they confirm if its easy or not? It looks like Ill have to put the car on stands to get under there.

Still got ages left on factory warranty so may leave for them to do.

holy *****. that looks way too complicated for an oil change

I'm yet to change my own oil on mine, but I got underneath it earlier to have a feel around and reckon it's a piece of cake to change the oil and filter for this car. The service manual just makes it look more difficult than it is. Provided you have a suitable oil filter wrench (cap type prefered) you will have no issues. Much better than a car with a oil filter that is accessible only through the engine bay.

^ Watever rolla boi if you dont have anything constructive to say then you better just keep your 'crap' comment to yourself...

There is no harm to make sure everything is all sweet and have the necessary tools before diving head in and probably end up doing the wrong thing...

A rolla is exactly like a Yaris with their simple oil change, to me its different from the Aurion even though to you make be relatively simple...

Changing oil is changing oil, thats a load of crap, just do it how you normally would. Thats what id do

Did you even read the TSB?

Just saying... it seems like you have to be a scientist to just change oil...so dont flame me for saying how i would do it...if you guys got that offended take it to toyota and question them about,or better yet keep getting it done at toyota, just looks to complicated for an oil change

I must say I agree with SQU-47N. If you have changed oil and filter before, the Aurion will be no problems. The service manual makes it seem more difficult than it is. There is only an extra step or two involved, and this is purely to make the filter change less messy. Though I wouldn't see it as this, one could say that the only disadvantage is that you will get your hands more dirty than normal.

Well if i have previously mentioned, I did the Yaris oil change as well... and looking to do the Aurion, yes since I cant seem to get the right advise or pointers for this one so I'm gonna have to just as one of the toyota dealers while getting a filter from them...

Tools wise, if they are readily available if not they arent too expensive to get...

I guess i will have a crack at it next weekend...

The hardest part of the filter change is getting a hold of that specialist tool (09228-06501). The step of draining the filter assy before cracking it looks more like it's a process to avoid making a mess as it a reusable housing and all. Just have a container nearby for when you open her up. I wouldn't be too sexed up lads, I reckon the first time you will be very tentative and it will take you half an hour to do this but after a few goes at it, you will halve your time. Don't be too worried about checking the oil pump output as outlined in the very first step. I am assuming that you are doing these filter/oil changes in between your proper toyota service(so as too keep your warranty and all), so the interval for that is still being carried out as per the book, you are just being a bit more conchie with the interval of the oil changes. Have fun with it hey!!!

I had a look online and was thinking probably is the same model and size for the Avalon?

Because the pdf oil filter change i attached is based on the same engine model number from a US website...
