Answers :

You still have to drain the engine oil from the drain plug in the oil pan, and I recommend replacing the drain plug gasket.
\015\012If you buy a filter from Toyota, it actually comes with instructions on exactly what to do. There is a 3/8" recess in the bottom of the filter housing, when you put a 3/8" extension and a ratchet in this and remove it, there should be a plastic piece that comes with the filter to pop into the bottom of the housing and drain the oil. replace the o-ring and reinstall the housing drain plug.

\015\012You can get a filter-cup tool from Pep Boys or local auto parts tools sections that will fit the filter housing. Use the cup with a ratchet and extension to remove the filter housing. replace the filter cartridge and the o-ring. Make sure to lubricate o-ring, they will snag! Reinstall and add 6.4 qts of oil
The oil is drained nomally, as you would do in any other car. The oil is drained from a plug on the oil pan; use a new gasket before you refit the drain plug/bolt onto the oil pan. Toyota part number for the drain plug gasket: 90430-12028.
\015\012The oil filter cartridge does require some info, though. In the box with the new filter-cartridge, you get 2 O-rings. Please make sure that you use them, or your filter housing WILL leak. Hope this helps, Thnaks for choosing FixYa to assist you with your question.

I have a 2004 Toyota Sienna. Had the oil and filter changed yesterday and brought the car home. When I started the car this morning, the check engiine light, VSC and Trac Control light came on. I have to take a 5 hour trip tomorrow. Is this something that can wait until next week or do you think this is something serious to prevent me from driving my car or did the person who changed my oil do something?


I'd get the car back to who changed the oil and have them run the check engine code. If they are interested in customer service, I'd think they'd do that for free.\015\012\015\012With the code, can better determine the risk. While I'd not ... 2006 Toyota Sienna
