Welcome to Honda Odyssey Forum : Odyssey Minivan Forums - a website dedicated to all things Honda Odyssey. I thought of taking it to the dealer, but after they told me there is no transmission filter and I see on this forum that there is, I'm not sure it makes sense to take it to the dealer. With a fill plug and a drain plug, there's no value in paying well over $100 for a mystery flush IMO. When removing the drain plug, are there any tricks to controlling the flow of the fluid into the drain pan to help avoid any excess cleanup?
Originally posted by lb5679 When removing the drain plug, are there any tricks to controlling the flow of the fluid into the drain pan to help avoid any excess cleanup? No real tricks but to lessen the gushing of fluid, leave he tranny dip stick in place to produce a simulated air lock. Unlike most cars that use a simple all-in-one oil filter, the 2010 Toyota Camry uses a more complicated oil cartridge system.
Jack up the front of the Camry by placing a floor jack under the center of the front cross member. Position an empty container under the oil pan to catch the used motor oil, and remove the oil drain plug.

Overall, your Toyota Camry is a very reliable vehicle requiring common maintenance attention. Bring car up to about 2000 RPM and hold for about 15 seconds to pressure test the filter seal - if it is not tight enough or a split gasket, the pressure should reveal a weakness.
30ft lbs on the drain plug - this is important as using a socket on the drain plug to tighten is not recommended, as you can easily exceed the torque spec. I highly recommend the OEM Toyota Filter cup ($40 value) if you're gonna do these yourself.
The OEM Aluminum housing can be very tricky to take off when over torqued (Most dealerships do this) The OEM Filter tool is a direct fit.
I'm changing oil (non synthetic) at about every 5000km and nihon does it for me for about $32, so it is a small price to pay when you're as useless as I am.

Install the new oil filter in the Corolla, using the oil filter wrench to tighten it in place. Allow the oil to drain completely, then replace the plug, ensuring it is sufficiently tight. Most quick lube oil change places will accept this for free as well as Cnd Tire or your local municipal recycling center. Modern day car's oil filter gaskets are pretty good as long the installer tightens it properly.

Also I have a lot of oil on the engine - would it throw a lot of oil with that sensor leak? A good way to keep track of when it is time to replace your Corolla's oil filter is to change it at the same time you change the vehicle's oil.
Use a clean, dry rag to wipe off any oil or other residue from the mounting area on the engine block.

Jack up the Camry enough to slide out the jack stands, then gently lower the Camry to the ground. Screw the filter housing back into the engine and replace the bolt that was previously removed.
