As for changing the oil , and I'm sure many will dis agree, but after30 years of doing it myself I've found it easier to take it to my Toyota dealer.
30 minutes, $30, don't have to dispose of the old oil and even get it washed.
Simple clean and fast. IF you are asking here how to change it you probably shouldn't do it yourself.
I don't agree at all that it's easier to have the dealership do it. I've never left my drain plug hand tight (read: loose) or left old parts/consumables on or in the engine bay. And I have heard plenty of stories where dealerships and quik lubes have. It also lets me see under the hood, into the oil, draw oil samples, and keep an eye on everything from an owner perspective.
And the part I bolded....If people aren't going to learn something on this forum....What is the point of having it?? I was lucky-Dad taught me how to work on cars and I went from there and learned more. Not everyone has that luxury.
