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.
