    Wondering if anyone has done an oil filter relocation on the Gen 4 yet... My wife used to have a Subaru Outback and the oil filter was staring right at you when you opened the hood.

    I have a 2008 Toyota Sienna. When removing the oil filter housing I dropped it and the perforated tube, spring and disc came out. How do these parts fit back together? It looks to me the spring goes on first, the disc goes on next, then the perforated tube over that. Please help!

    I have a 2011 Sienna LE with the 6 cylinder engine. I did the first oil change three days ago since the customer care ended. By far the hardest oil change I've done (mostly due to the dealership over tightening things). Now I'm paranoid I've done things wrong. In the aggravation I forgot to...

    What is the correct cap size for 2013 oil filter wrench? I looked up Toyota part size 09228-06501 on Ebay and results came back with 65mm 14 Flutes End and 64mm 14 Flutes End. They all claimed that the wrench would work for 2013 Sienna.
