Yes, I would like to know this also! Just a guess, but if with a skidplate, it might be a pain. Hopefully Toyota will incorporate an access plate, versus removing the entire skidplate, but they are not renowned for doing this. I wish at the Hawaii event someone would have filmed underbody to show this. NOBODY is allowed to change my oil but me, and never have, even at age 81 and 2+ million miles logged.How will the oil change be like on the T24a-fts hybrid engine?
"Typical automotive oil filters don’t provide any indication when they go into bypass mode, and that could be justification for replacing the oil filter every 6 months."
Somewhere, possibly on the WIX website, I found their data regarding the bypass mode PSI. Would hope that would never occur, the filter so contaminated it defaults to bypass mode.
Sad, so many folks dismiss the importance of proper break-in, some of our kids included. I cringe when they would purchase a vehicle, say 500 miles from home, and immediately jump on the Interstate. Of course, I am probably overkill in the opposite direction..."I'm still working though the break-in procedure which will include at least one early oil/filter change. My preference is to control the loading/pressures inside the cylinders, so I'm considering periodically disabling the hybrid system to accomplish that during break-in."
The backup 12v starter would be nice!I expect the oil filter will be in the same location on the LC250. We'll get the sepentine belt driven water pump as well. Hopefully we will get the back-up 12v starter like the Tundra hybrid; I have not been able to confirm yet.
