Discussing Toyota Oil Filters


Recommended Posts

Hi All, This one from The Car Care Nut (our Toyota Guru) is discussing in detail Toyota Oil Fliters and I highly recommend all watching it as he really gets into the Cartridge style and Spin on type Oil filters. Worth watching for any who want to do their own Oil changes as he discusses what is good and what is a NO NO.

Enjoy

Haha, I watched that video yesterday morning. 

He certainly makes a good point on trying to stay with original parts or high quality aftermarket, especially the filter housing, be it "aloooominum" or plastic.

He proved that with that rubbish Dorman product too.
Why would you buy a Dorman for the same money it would cost for an Original ?

I understand if one is stuck and can't get to a dealership, but under normal circumstances, that would be a no brainer.

I have a spare brand new filter housing, just in case. Nothing worse than needing something that can't wait...

Yes. Definitely worth watching this video. I did learn a few things particularly how the oil bypass works on the cartridge style.

I got confirmation about what I was doing right and what mistakes to avoid.

Big warning about not to even think about doing an upgrade or modification to the oil filtration system. Too much risk involved to your expensive engine.

Not sure about the 2GR, but with the 2ZR canister-to-spinon conversion you can do it with no risk as Toyota built the engine in both configurations depending on the year.
