1200 miles on my '07. How do I change the oil. It's a 5.7.
Have not personally done it, but it sounds like the new "cartidge" oil filter comes with instructions on the proper element replacement procedure. Purchase one from your dealer, if they have it in stock (some areas experiencing backorders) and let us know how it goes!!

I'd never paid anyone to change my oil until recently. No time to do it, no place to do it, and I get WAY less oil on me by taking it to the dealer lol.
On a side note:
When u get to the filter, lemme know if there are any green grease pencil markings on it lol... if so, I inspected that engine :D

i also own a 07 scion tc and on the tc forums there are alot of complaints of the dealer using regular pump 5w 30 wt oil... so when you have your car serviced MAKE SURE you see the empty bottles of 0w20 oil .. they dont have this oil in bulk yet so they have to use the more expencive bottle oil using 5w30 will decrease fuel economy the choice is yours but i will stick to only what was recomended from the factory
