Hello everyone. First thank you for allowing me into the group. I tried to read through some forums to see if I could find an answer so perhaps I didn’t have to be a bother. I recently purchased a 2004 4Runner 150200 miles.. (I love it) I took it to the oil change place and the gentleman said he couldn’t change my oil. He said my skid plate and bolts were to rusty and I needed a new skid plate. I know I need my oil changed and financially I would like to get it done before I purchased and had installed a new skid plate. Will this hurt my vehicle? Meaning is the oil filter really that low that I will damage it as easy as he made it seem?
