I have no idea why now, some are saying that you shouldn't add oil to the full mark. That's what the *&%* mark is for!

In fact, if it's slighty above the fiull mark it perfectly OK.
Als long as there is no indication of oli foaming when the enging is run hard, you are fine no matter how high the level is.

If you fill it to factory spec. it is going to be a little above the full mark, {4qt}
anyone who says otherwise is just simply wrong.

Hey guys! Just to be sure, the oil pan and its drain plug are underneath the front passenger seat(shotgun)??

I am so jealous that the OP has a metal dipstick, mine is plastic plus the color is YELLOW! Why Toyota? Motor oil is YELLOW!

What kind of dipstick do you guys have(metal or plastic)?

2007Yariz,

Yes the oil pan and the drain are under the passenger side. I'm sorry about the metal dipstick, lol. Maybe 2008 was when they changed the dipstick?

Good luck with the change!

Why? - Nothing wrong with the plastic dipsticks.

Bail - In the past regarding the lower end Fram filters, they aren't very high quality in relation to their competitors.

Not to but in....but Frams are out. I know Wally World sells them in abundance but they also sell Supertech which gets much better reviews. Check my garage for the size as I don't remember right off hand.

Yep, Wally World sells them. I was looking into the Fram Xtended Guard series, and i don't think it was as bad as the Extra and Tough Guard series filters. Anyway, I installed a Xtended Guard on my 98 Corolla, i will cut it out for inspection after 3k mileage.

While it is a good thing to do no harm will come to an engine if you don't.

As Yaris Hilton said, it only takes a couple of seconds for it to fill and oil pressur to build up.

Just don't redline it the second you start it and it will be fine.
damn.. thats what i always do! lol

Try your local autoparts sort, the worse they can say is "no". Then you'll have to try the dealership.

I have a plastic dipstick ... I was shocked when I first saw it. Even my old 87 Honda Accord had a metal dipstick.
