    I'm not sure whether I did things right the first time.

    And I'm not sure if I'm going to get it right the second time.

    I bought 90915-YZZN1 filter at O'Reilly's. I was looking for the YZZF1, but they didn't have it. They looked up their database and gave me this one. I acquiesced.

    I'm doing good so far, yeah?

    Also, I was going to start and waste another thread, but here goes:
    What's the best ground clearance anyone here got for their oil change, and with what did they use?

    Thanks,
    TTY04

    I’d get an OEM filter at Toyota and I’d use Rhino Ramps or something like them from Amazon. Others may just squeeze under but not me. If I were doing it.

    woohoo!

    finished my oil change this evening... albeit, with some hiccups. (like Prius dropping off one of the ramps and the ramp being stuck under the Prius because of the car's low clearance.) but other than that.... !

    This time around, I've noticed how running the engine generates electricity much more easily... the Energy Monitor shows green arrow bars more often than before. So relieved.
