I just helped a friend change the oil in his 2003 Toyota 4Runner SUV equipped with the 1GR-FE 4.0L V6 engine (pictured below).

We took pictures of the process and I created a quick guide.

Here's the page - Toyota 4Runner Engine Oil Change Guide

I know most of you can do this in your sleep, but hopefully it will help some of the new owners.

Hey Paul

Thanks for the write up. Great tips for new owners.

My two cents worth... I personally don't jack up the 4runner when changing the oil for two main reasons: The car would be level so this will allow for proper drainage. Secondly, it adds more work/time to the oil change. There's enough room to crawl underneath for most folks. Any way, just my two cents worth.

But I think it's a great write up either than that.
