    I wouldn't even change the oil.

      I felt your pain for years, until I bit the bullet and got an oil filter relocation kit when installing my oil cooler.

      The trick to staying clean when changing an oil filter on a 2JZ is to get a click lock lunch bag and slide it up over the filter before loosening it, then all the excess oil goes in the bag instead of down your forearm and all over the cross member

        So just top it up? Had a rear main seal leak so its lost a bit from being ran in the driveway a couple of times a week for 20 minutes

          is an oil filter so expensive it's even worth considering not doing it? you may as well while you're there. changing oil without changing the filter is a waste of time and oil.

          the first time I changed the oil on a 2JZ I wondered if Toyota hated mechanics

            What engine? I guess it depends what it's used for and what was in it.

            If you've started it weekly, I'd actually change it rather than if you had just let it sit. Will have way more contamination in it if it's been cold started frequently but not driven.

              I hate changing the oil on my hilux, the filter is in a shitty spot, most of the time it ends up falling in the oil drain pan and than splashed oil goes everywhere. Lol

                Punch a a hole in filters and let it drain first. Sometimes need a 2nd hole higher up to let it vent/drain. For hard to reach ones a cheap auto centre punch sharpened to a point will do, can take a few goes at it.

                    I swear the following happened in a sake fuelled night out in Japan

                    Toyota oil filter position engineer " NO! I put the filter there, HA they'll never get to it"
                    Nissan oil filter position engineer *smiles....

                      You're right it's not but I just had 1500 worth of work done to it and work has slowed right down. Reduced hrs etc. Not great timing but whatever.

                      I'd like to keep the job of getting g it ready for reg moving so I don't fall Into the depressive state I did last year during lockdown and no work. I've got the oil
                      but no filter.
                      See where I'm going with this?

                          Any time I do an oil change I thank Toyobaru for their incredible filter placement. I don't know why it took so long for some engineer to realise this is the perfect way to do it and I don't know why every manufacturer didn't immediately follow suit from 2012 on.

                              Except when you go to undo the cunt, and you're swinging off it with a 4ft breaker bar.

                                Perhaps you want an oil extractor? Push pipe down dipstick hole, pump the handle a few times and it sucks all of the oil out of the sump.

                                Easy to find on eBay or at boating stores because you usually can't get under an inboard motor to empty the sump. If you have a car with an easy access filter (VW, Subaru) you won't need jacks, stands, gloves etc. From my experience with a Honda K20A, the extractor removed more oil than taking out the sump plug.
                                If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.
