First oil change .....

I just finished...one question...I couldn't get the drain plug on the filter housing off...is this ok to just spin the whole housing off like a regular oil filter ? I am afraid the gasket under that drain piece could fail if not changed...am I worried over nothing ....? Also I.watched a video where a guy said the filter should pop into place , mine didn't ...I'm guessing that's no big deal...any answers will be appreciated

If you have it off, go to the dealer and buy the metal house for a Venza. A much better improvement.
You can take it off without taking the plug out of the bottom, but it will be messier.

One thing I noticed today that I haven't ever saw or paid attention too is where exactly the oil pressure runs in these trucks...right in the middle or just below at the stop light and between the center mark and H when getting on it...I'm guessing that's correct...I put 7 and a half quarts in...it was sitting pretty much in the middle of the marks on the dipstick...

You just have to jerk a little on the socket when removing the cap for the drain so it doesn't spin the whole housing. You don't need to worry about the o-ring failing though.

I ordered this new style filter...2 questions...1. I'm guessing the drain plug from the old one screws right into the new one? 2. Does it matter if you have the flex fuel engine?
