Hey guys! So I was doing my first oil change this past weekend and i ran into a little bit of trouble. I use to have a 2000 camry where the filter was in a similar place to my 06 taco. Well... when I let the engine sit overnight to change the oil the next morning all od the oil from the filter will drain out of it, which makes it easy and cleaner when i unscrew it to take the filter out. Well... i thought the taco would be the same but NO. I let the engine sit overnight thinking that the oil will drain out of the filter and that i can unscrew it mess free... BOY WAS I WRONG!!! When i unscrewed it a good about of oil spilled down from the inverted filter. I know theres a little spill resevoir right on the rim of the filter, but it wasnt enough to contain all of the oil that spilled out... DID ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM!??!?! It's normal right?!?!? Any input/experiences would help guys!!! I had a lot to clean up especially when it spilled down to my stock skid plate which i had to remove to clean the mess. thanks boys!!!
