Default '99 Camry V6 Oil Change - Filter Removal.

Still haven't found a way to preclude some of the draining oil to run onto
parts of the frame & pan. Haven't tried removing filter from cold engine. Do
dealers & oil changers use special baffles or shields? Newspaper &
papertowels don't do a very good job.

Most wash it off with some water (and sometimes a cleaner or soap before the
water). Some don't do anything and it will drip for awhile in your garage or
parking space.

===================
If you have time, drain the oil from a hot engine, but let it drain for
several hours or better still - over night.
You'll find the oil stays cleaner longer this way also and the drips
from the oil filter should be gone.
Not best to drain from a cold engine because you want impurities
suspended in warm oil that has been circulating prior to draining.
On the four cylinder, the filter can be removed without a single drop
of old oil. I also drain the transaxle and by letting it sit almost
another quart drains out.

I always used some Spray and Wash followed by a water rinse. Cleaned up
just fine.

I jam a big rag under the filter then unscrew it slowly. That catches
most of it.

I'm not a big fan of letting it drain overnight. You never know if some
bugs go inside your engine, and I think some moisture may get in.
Anyway, my suggestion is to jack up your car, up and down, front and
back to tilt. Some oil trapped on the corners will flow as you rock
your car. But be very safe, this is not a very easy task and not
popular among others but you can see oil flow out. good luck.

By the way, ever heard of the urban myth that coca-cola cleans oil? : )

=======================
Makes sense.
I use an enclosed garage and there are no other potential drivers to
jump in and start the car with no oil.

I see. Is it a good idea to add engine flush oil to the engine before
driving to the shop? Some adds kerosene to the oil before draining the
oil. Is this advisable?

Nah. This is actually dangerous!

The oil change should be done with the engine warm. The oil is thiiner
when warm and flows more freely. I added a flushing agent once and will
Never do it again...my OP dropped by 1/3!

Oil has a siphoning quality...once the stream starts, most of the old oil
follows. Any oil left behind is nigligible and certainly won't harm the
engine. Following the Manufacdturer's recommendation as a MINIMUM, or
changing every 3,000-3,500 miles is the best cure.

I have an '85 Corolla GTS with 258,000 miles, a Supra with 200,000 miles,
and had an '85 Celica GTS with 254,000 miles an '83 Tercel wagon with
210,000 miles, and an '88 Honda with 212,000 miles, all with oil changes
every 3,000-3,500 miles. Once in a while 4,000 or 5,000 miles.

Wow, a car enthusiast, or just a big family? hehe, anyway besides the
mileage manufacturers recommend changing every 6 months whichever comes
first. Which is more harmful to the engine? higher mileage or the
prolonging the life of the oil in months?
