All you'll need are a few simple tools, enough cans of oil for your particular vehicle, and approximately 20 minutes. Needed Equipment: * Oil Filter Wrench I prefer "Strap Wrench which can be used on oil filters up to a 6" (152mm) diameter. It Strong nylon belt will not slip. Use with 1/2" square drive tools." See link to Wrench below. * As many quarts of oil as your car needs. Refer to your owner's manual for recommendation. * Oil Drain Pan (for draining the old oil into). An something like a gallon milk jugs with screw on lids work great to transport to recycle center or you can purchase an all in one. See link to Oil Pan below. * Wheel ramps * Blocks to wedge behind your tires * Proper size wrench * Funnel * Rags * A new oil filter to fit your make and model Changing the Oil: * Place the wheel ramps under your front tires and drive up on them. * Put on your emergency brakes and place the blocks behind your back tires. * To drain the old oil out of your car, crawl underneath and find the plug on the bottom of your oil pan. * Place your container under the pan and use your wrench to unscrew the plug. * Caution: The oil may be hot and could cause severe burns! Also, the oil will pour out quickly after the plug is removed; let it drain completely. When the oil has stopped draining, replace the plug. Replacing the oil filter: * Make sure you rub a little clean oil on the gasket of the filter to help seat properly. * Find the Oil Cap on the top of the engine it says Oil. * Using the funnel, fill the car up with as many quarts as it requires. Last an Final check: * Once you've added the oil, start the engine while the car is still up on the ramps and let it run a bit, checking for any leaks around your oil filter and oil pan plug. * If you see oil leaking, tighten up the filter some more. * Drive your car off the ramps. ALWAYS dispose of used oil properly, preferably at a location that recycles oil.
96 4runner engine oil capacity i have myself a 1996 Toyota 4runner with 3.4l engine. this engine is called 5VZ-FE. i do have an original manual book for the car and that is what is says. if you change the oil with the filter it will take 5.2 quarts. if you do a change without replacing a filter - 4.9. well good luck changing your oil!
Do you really have to take out the front differential to change the oil pump on a 1995 Toyota 4Runner w 3.0 3vze engine?
No, you can also pull out the whole engine. Yes, it is a bad design. http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/1990-1995_4Rnr/Toyota.4Runner.1990.1995/FSM/95toypdf/95rmsour/1995/954runne/eg2/lubricat/oilpump.pdf Step 2: 2. 4WD: REMOVE FRONT DIFFERENTIAL (See SA section) http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/1990-1995_4Rnr/Toyota.4Runner.1990.1995/FSM/95toypdf/95rmsour/1995/954runne/sa/frontdif/assembly.pdf Some people have had sucess with unbolting the engine mounts and raising the engine slightly. To get out the pan, however, requires disconnecting steering linkages. Make sure you mark them well so it goes back in straight.
In most cases this problem is from excessive oil burnings as well as oil leakage from atop the valve cover's. It would be wise to replace the valve cover gaskets as well as check the oil drain plug for proper placement. However the use of synthetic oil in this engine leaks faster. the use of conventional oil in this case is preferred.
Turn the 4Runner on, make sure that you are looking at the "odometer" miles and not the "Trip" miles. Turn the 4Runner off, hold the "reset" button, turn the 4Runner On and the "MAINT" light will blink 3 times. Release the "reset" button and the light will turn off. This worked great for me but the light flashed 5 times then went off. 2007 SR5 4WD 16,000 miles recently purchased from dealer hopefully there is…
