    Default Lexus ES 350 oil change

    Good morning:
    I've always been a DIY guy, changing my oil every 3,000 miles......Bought my wife an ES-350, and after the first gratis change at Lexus, I had to get a filter from the dealer. Not your normal oil filter! Where is it, and is it difficult without the "Special Service Tool" they refer to on the filter box?

    Channelocks can loosen the filter cannister.
    I don't use/have the SST,the filter clamp I use on other Lexus vehicles works.

    Here's a good idea of what you need to change your oil. Keep in mind the Camry V6, Avalon and Lexus V6 share the same engine. I purchased a 2007 V6 Camry LE and purchased a dozen genuine Toyota oil filter elements from Toyota of Puyallop via the iternet ($3.90 per filter in quantity lots) and ordered a Assenmacher oil cannister wrench type cap from

    Below is the Assenmacher model TOY640 oil filter cap/wrench which I should get delivered this week. It's a quality tool versus the junk thin stamped cap they normally sell in the local auto places.

    Hope these jpg's help you!

    Oh please don't. If we don't support Iffy Lube, they will die. Then all is well in the universe.
