Using the oil filter wrench or your hand, grasp the filter and slowly turn anti-clockwise.
As the filter unscrews, a considerable amount of oil will begin to drip down the sides of the filter, so ensure you position the oil pan underneath.
Once removed, lubricate the seal of your new oil filter and fill three quarters with fresh oil. This helps reduce oil starvation. Carefully screw back onto the vehicle, hand tighten.
Once the filter has been replaced, prepare to fill the engine with fresh oil. You will need to fill approximately 5.5L, checking the dipstick as the engine is filled.
Once you have filled the oil, close the cap and start the engine, idle for a few minutes. Inspect for leaks under the vehicle.
Turn the engine off, and after a few more minutes check the dipstick level once again as it may have dropped. Top up as required.
You have now completed an oil change on your Toyota Hilux.
