Toyota RAV4 Oil Filter

The oil in your engine can over time become dirty from particulates in the fuel the engine is burning or from metal fragments from other components. An oil filter will clean that oil constantly but will in due course become clogged itself. You can find replacement oil filters for the RAV4 below sorted by year and engine size.

About The RAV4 Oil Filter

Oil is used within the engine and some other components in the RAV4 to transfer heat away from them and to a radiator.

In order for the oil to do the best job possible in transferring this heat away, it must remain clean of anything that isn’t oil.

This is where the oil filter comes in, it captures everything that isn’t oil and collects it to be discarded away during its next service.

Several other filters are changed during a service and act as a cost-effective way of prolonging the life of your car.

RAV4 Oil Filter Location

Like many other cars, the oil filter is located underneath the engine and next to the oil pan – where a lot of the oil sits due to gravity pushing it downwards.

It sits upside down with its entry/exit point for the oil to filter through it above itself.

To access it you need to lift the front of the RAV4 slightly up on either a pair of ramps or if available a garage’s car lift.

Toyota RAV4 oil filter location

In later Toyota RAV4s, you will find a guard underneath the engine protecting it from possible bumps – a hole has been cut out of this to give easy access to the oil filter.

Removing the Oil Filter

To change the oil filter for a new one in the RAV4 (once located using the information above) you must grab a wrench or other tool capable of turning a bolt.

Securing the oil filter to the engine is a 27mm (or 1-1/6″) bolt that requires undoing with 9lbs/foot torque.

Once undone the whole filter assembly will drop and along with it will be the oil from the engine, so be prepared to catch it.

Replace the filter with a new one and reattach the whole unit back to the engine – then you will need to replace the oil that left the engine.

RAV4 Oil Filter Housing Stuck

If your oil filter housing has been secured too tightly during a previous change then you may find that it is stuck.

Trying to undo the bolt may also lead to a cracked housing which would require it to be replaced.

Most RAV4 oil filter covers are plastic but a few (around the 2011 time) were made using aluminum – these metal ones could take more torque.

A quick fix may be that you allow the engine to cool down completely, allowing the housing to shrink slightly and may make the removal easier.

Other than that – you may need to visit a garage or dealership that has access to better tools and have experience of this situation.

Oil Filter Change

Toyota recommends that you change the oil in your engine every 3,000-5,000 miles if using conventional oil.

If you are using synthetic oil in your RAV4 then they recommend doubling that figure.

Obviously, the manufacturer is going to edge onto the safe side with many motorists breaking that rule.

It’s usually best practice to service your RAV4 once a year, replacing other filters such as the air filter and the brake pads too at the same time.

RAV4 Oil Filter Cost

You can find the various parts that make up the oil filter on this page, including the replaceable filter and the housing.

Depending on the retailer you can find the replaceable filter cartridge for between $5 and $10 – usually, you will find it in packs with multiple filters in it.

The replacement housing that protects the filter can be bought for about $10 – some companies make premium aftermarket versions of this that can be a lot more expensive.
