BUMP. I think this is a good idea. :)

tacomaman06 07-08-2008 07:37 PM

raycie 07-08-2008 07:50 PM

Crap.. that's how the oil comes out of that resevior... I used the 'ol soak it up with a rag technique.. (no wise a*s remarks please...)..
Also just picked up a craftsman oil filter adapter that adapts to various sized filters..

Thanks for the info about the plug at the bottom of the filter holder. I have not change my oil yet since I only have 1,100 miles. I never knew that was there thanks for the info.

spaghettiedy 10-14-2008 11:51 AM

This would be a good sticky

running a tube to the bottom of the filter holder is a good idea...I just coverd the thing with a plastic wal mart bag...free...easy...

agreed. I have just been using a 16oz water bottle, but still end up spilling it some times, going to get some tubing for the next time for sure! Bump for Sticky or for other people.

Agent475 10-14-2008 01:20 PM

Good idea - great thread - STICKY!!

P.S. You could add to it with info on oil types and selection as well as filter selection etc...

Yep! If it helps, set the ratchet before turning the bolt, just to be safe. :)

I should've looked at this last night before I changed the oil for the first time -- oh well!
Good post though!!!! I agree it should be sticky-fied!

monoman 10-30-2008 10:52 AM

Man, I sure wish my oil filter was that easy to get to! ( I have the 3.4) I like that little shield that is around the base of the filter.:thumbsup:

DFPTaco 10-30-2008 11:12 AM

Sweet, I didn't know about the filter drain thingy. That'll save a mess in the future...

DFPTaco 10-30-2008 11:12 AM

Anybody know the part numbers for the larger size mobile 1 oil filter???

kris77 10-30-2008 11:24 AM

I made a huge mess when i changed my oil last month...I never knew that little plug was under the filter...I did what raycie did...I had to mop it up with paper towels and rags...

See....You learn something new every day...

I used to do my own oil changes since I was in high school (1994) until I got to own my 2004 Tacoma V6. I did 1 oil change and then I gave up. It's too uncomfortable. Looks like your pictures are for a 4-cylinder Tacoma and it might be easier than changing the oil on a V6.
