Oil Change

From the FSM:

1. DRAIN ENGINE OIL
(a) Remove the oil filler cap.
(b) Remove the oil dipstick.
(c) Remove the oil drain plug and drain the oil into a container.

Dang it! All this time I've been doing it wrong?

I had my oil changed at the dealership (I watched him so it since I couldn't get the filter off myself.) and when he had 5.5 quarts in, he showed me the dipstick and it was reading only half. After pouring in the remaining .5 quart it was full. Thoughts? I've checked the dip stick since and it is still full and everything seems to be fine.

I run mine at half (5.5 quarts) and it doesn't move in my 5k OCI's.

Just curious, has anyone ever mixed synthetic and regular oil? Is there really a difference between the two?

5VZFE Oil filter and plug gasket specs

Hey folks,
I seen a lot of questions regarding the oil filter and oil plug gasket. I thought I'd post some pictures and specs.

For the 5VZFE, the filter I got at Toyota was #90915-YZZG1, made in USA. I paid $5.41 plus tax and they thru the gasket in for free.


It measures about 3 3/8" tall


The oil plug gasket is a steel washer sandwiched between blue two fiber washers. It measures 21mm OD (.827") x 12.25mm ID (.4825") x 1.70mm thick (.067")
