Just pay the oil shop $10 to put in the filter. Tell them to hand tighten it back in. I hand tight mine and when it's time to come off I can pretty much use my hands. Never had a problem and I'm only 135lbs that not that much engery.

Done! I took the car to my friend's shop and we used his hydraulic lift. Torque wrench with really long bar handle did the job. There is no way that I would make it with my tools . Thank you all!

I bought my oil filter cup/wrench from the Snap-On tool dealer that comes to the dealership I work at. works beautifully. Part number for it is #OFWTOY68. It works on all V6 & V8 Toyota's and Lexus'

you told your friend not to make it extra tight when putting the filter back right? you dont want to run into same problems during your next oil change.

use ramps, way easier and safer than jack stands. I do own 4 jackstands and a low profile jack but I use my ramps way more often

I'm sorry but ramps are easier to use but not safer than jack stands.

ramps + jackstands as a backup is the best combo imo. Pull the car up on ramps, but leave stands or a tire under in case the ramps fail. You can never be too safe

Looking to do a 2012 IS250 AWD's oil change on my daughters boyfriend's car before they leave for college.

Wix shows 2 filters for a IS250, a 57173 and a 57047. One is shorter, not sure why it would show 2.

Which should it take?

How much oil do you use on a typical oil change?
