    5.5 quarts of oil
    5/16" ID 5ft long tube

    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..

    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...

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

    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:

    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.
