#1 of 6 2010 Seinna Oil Filter Location
Aug 01, 2009 (10:00 am)
Just bought a new 2010 Sienna and can not find the Oil Filter. I found what looks like the pad it should be on but it is not. The Owners Manual has Oil Quantity specs for "with filter" and "with out filters." The quantities are .1 liter different. Does this mean some have not filter.? Just call me stupid. Brian

You're probably used to working with spin-off filters, and the Sienna uses cartridge re-fills.
It's a metal cover, with fins. You get a kit to replace it, and that kit should have instructions.

Found it thanks. So Toyota trusts Joe backyard mechanic to NOT forget to install the housing O ring (packing) ??? I can hear someone winning about this oil leak, then the Oil Pressure Light came on...

I'm sure they're rather you give your money to their dealers.
Spin-off filters are much easier. I guess they argue these cartridges make less waste but you have to use rags to clean everything, so not really.

So where is the location of the oil filter housing? I just got a 2011 Sienna XLE and I understand it use a cartiridge type oil filter. I popped the hood and can't find this filter housing. Is it visible from the top?
