    There is a previous thread on this topic:

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/where-is-oil-filter-location.391255

    Great pics!

    2016 owners might want to consider replacing that plastic for aluminum, for obvious reasons.

    My wife's Toyota Sienna has this type of filter. Oil changes are messy, can't believe they did this

    One of the great things about the 4.0 was the great oil filter setup.

    Does anyone know if the dipstick is easier to use?

    Is there any actual benefit to cartridge vs traditional canister filters? Maybe Less to dispose of but just wondering why they switched

    I would think not since the 4cyl didn't change much if any.

Installed new hood with "hoodscoop". Installed Predator Side Steps. Replaced front chrome grill with customized color matched (Desert Sand Mica) grill with added TOYOTA lettering (also in matched color).
    Probably did the change due to environmental friendly issue's? Meaning that a plain paper/fiber filter will be easier to break down over a period of time compared to a metal canister?

    Also on another note, looks like Toyota didn't put in an "excess oil drain release" hole-prior to changing the filter during oil changes?

    Would have like'd a close up picture of the side of the new filter box that's showing directions (removal/installation) as shown in the picture below.

    Is this picture of the same cap, but one is metal (left) and one is the stock plastic (right)?

    I'm not sure I've ever seen this type of oil filter before. Is this common?
