Recommended Torque For Rx300 Oil Drain Plug?

Recommended Posts

It's not real critical. Just moderately snug is sufficient. Error on the loose side rather than on the tight side.

It's much more important to be meticulous about not getting dirt into the engine when changing the oil and filter. So wipe the oil filler cap, filler opening, dipstick tube and dipstick cap clean of all accumulated dirt so that none accidentally falls into the engine.

Clean and install the oil drain plug with a new gasket (important) and torque to:

45 N-m, 460 kgf.cm, 33 ft-lbf (take your pick :rolleyes: )

fyi: Drain and refill...

W/Oil filter change (4.7 liters (5.0 US quts, 4.1 imp qts)

W/o Oil filter change (4.5 liters (4.8 US qts, 4.0 Imp qts)

Dry fill (5.2 liters (5.5 US qts, 4.6 Imp qts)
