Re: 1st oil change myself
I've been fixing and servicing Euro Cars for 25+ years. Porsche, M/B, Volvo, Mini, VW and BMW have all been using the plastic canisters for years. None of them have a "locking clip" and I've NEVER had one come loose or leak. I've never tightened one more than snug, maybe 12 or 15 ftlbs. There is enuf friction in the o-ring that they will never vibrate loose.
The O-ring does the sealing, tighter wont help. I've also changed the oil in my FJ (2011) 16 times. Used the proper socket and never over tightened the housing. Looks and works like new. Will last the life of the car, just as Toyota intended.
I'm not lost. I'm right there at the cursor on my GPS..... Wherever that is????
