Initial oil change

1836 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Jeff
Typically, I get a full set of factory manuals when I purchase a vehicle, but my new 2001 S-Runner's full set of three manuals is over $200.00! A bit much. I'll probably just order the "mechanical" manual... Anyway, the point is, I want to do my initial oil and filter change at around a 1000 miles and I need the proper torque setting for the drain plug.
I'm ready to go, got my Toyota filter and the ridiculously expensive and overly complex drain plug washer ($1.25 Ea.!). All I need is that torque setting, help please?

I forgot about the drain plug gasket. On my truck there is one on the pan or it might be stuck there but I have changed my oil about 5 or 6 times and have never changed mine and I have no leaks.

I hope this helps.
