u can get a genuine toyota Oil Filter
from the dealership, or an aftermarket like fram and other brands from auto parts stores. you tell them the car, year, engine size and theyll find out in their database.
so it basically depends how much you wanna take care of the car. if you just wanna do a normal oil change then get a filter and these black bottled engine oils from pep boys. all together will barely come to 8$
im sure you can search google and find how to do an oil change but i still tell you how with some tips.
u need a stand, after you raise the car with a jack put a stand, its safer.
1- open ur Hood
and take off the oil cap
2- raise the car and go under the car and locate the oil pan. the oil pan is right under the engine basically, it looks like a metal container with a bolt on it that you can unscrew. unbolt it and let the oil drain completely. the reason you open the oil cap on the top from the beginning is for flow. imagine when you drink a coke from a can with a straw and you squeeze the tip. whenever you squeezing it, most of the drink from the straw drips but some stay in. same thing with the engine.
3- once you have the bolt off the oil pan, look around there, the Oil Filter
should be close there. take off the Oil Filter
and let some oil drain from there too.
4- its time to put the new Oil Filter
in. before you do so, make sure that the rubber seal from the old Oil Filter
isnt stuck to the place where the new filter gonna go. if it is, then move it. there should be no black rubber on the car, the black rubber should be around the Oil Filter
. if you leave that black seal on the car, and you put the new filter on ull have huge oil leak and ull damage ur engine if you dont notice the oil leak. now, before putting the new Oil Filter
in the place, dip ur finger in some oil and then go with ur oily finger over the surface of the Oil Filter
where its gonna attach to the car. basically ur lubricating the Oil Filter
5- put the bolt back to the oil pan.
6- drop the car and add some oil. check the level to see if its enough.
i think thats all, its pretty late and im tired, so if anything is wrong, someone correct me
