The safest way to be sure you don't overfill the motor with engine oil is: after draining the oil pan and installing the drain plug, put the new filter on and add three quarts of approved oil to the engine. pull the dipstick and wipe it clean, re-insert and check the accurate oil level. there should be oil either at the very bottom of the dipstick or between two holes or on what looks like a hashmark. if the oil is at the bottom of the dipstick, add one more quart, then start the engine. let it run for about 30 seconds then shut if off. check the dipstick just like before. The oil level should be right at the top oil level mark on the dipstick. It's ok if it is a little low but NOT OK to be above the line or mark.

I would say roughly 4litres and then run the engine, then shut it off and check the dip stick, if the fluid is within the hash marks then your ok if not add more until you get there

Is replacing an oil pan in a 2004 toyota camry an easy fix ?


It isn't too hard. You need to drain the oil first ( make sure to change the gasket around the plug every time you remove and replace the plug or it will leak), then drop the oil pan... put down lots of absorber pads as there will be droppings. Have a rag on hand for your hands. Scrape and clean the old seal where the oil pan meets the engine then put on a new one once it is thoroughly cleaned. Put on new pan, or repair old one.... again make sure to replace oil pan gasket and new oil drain gasket ( around plug..) since your going that far get a new oil filter also.... fill the new filter with oil before installing, fill up the engine with new oil..ps. It takes a few minutes to run down so wait between oil bottles and check the level ( don't run the car) fill the oil until the dip stick reads full ( remember wait a few minutes between each liter of oil to give it a chance to leak into the bottom of the engine). I believe it is around 4.5 quarts including the amount needed to fill the filter.

1992 Toyota Camry V6 how many litres oil


Can't give you an exact number but I can tell you how to find out. I will asume that you are changing you oil and filter? After putting the oil plug and filter on put three quarts of oil in and start engine; after oil light goes off, turn engine off and let set for about 5 minutes, then check oil; if it is not on the low mark of dip stick add another quart, start engine, stop engine, let set for a couple of minutes and check again. By now you should either be at or above the low line and just add enough oil to top it off at the full line. I would guess that about 4 1/2 to 5 quarts is what you will need. Hope this helps,

I have a 87 camry it looks like there is a oil leek starting.I checked the drain plug,oil filter thay all seem to be fine.can you tell me where the next common place to look would be,or should I just try...


Hello Mark.
The next most common thing I would look into here is the oil pressure sensor. They sometimes pull apart and leak at the seam.
Your 2 liter engine has it's sensor on the top left side of the cylinder head.
If the concentration of oil seems to be on the top side of the engine a valve cover gasket may have cracked.
A severe leak will often wash dirt off of an engine so look for an oil washed area. If nothing apparent it may be a good idea to give your engine a quick cleanup to help you find the leak as oil can travel a long way on an engine.
Hope you find the source OK.
Thank you for using FixYa!

1997 4Runner oil quantity


For a V6 # Liter engine, you will use a galon and almost half (that is about 6 Liters of oil). I use a Toyota camry V6 3 Liter engine that shares the same engine with the Toyota 4Runner.
