I have a 2012 Highlander with the 2 GR-FE V6 engine. So far.the instructions were after replacing the O rings thighten the filter hand tight. Then to give an extra 1/2 to 1/3 turn the BUT the filter housing was alredy seated on the block. I figured the O ring had slipped to a different grove. I removed the filter but the O ring was in the proper spot. I reinstalled the filter and went by the instructions on the box that said "hand tight and then torque to 9.5 ft lbs. But, I know the filter housing is still tight on the block. (I used all Toyota parts). On our other toyota there were tabs on the filter housing that kept the housing secure.
Did I do the oil filter change right?????
