I recently came across a video of a 2016 corolla with a canister filter:

https://youtu.be/vIJYPoEilGw

Upon further web surfing, it appears that all 2016 corollas manufactured JAN/2016 has a canister type oil filter rather than the cartridge.

My question is, has anyone looked under their iM's. To the guys that has an iM manufactured JAN/2016 and newer, is your oil filter canister or cartridge? I was just wondering if our iM's got caught in the mix. Thanks guys.

No oil change yet

I have yet to do an oil change, but I will for sure ask the techs when I go in to show me. I've always used the screw on type.

Cartridge type oil filter for me, but I have a few brand new OEM Toyota canister type oil filters. Looks like Toyota is switching back to the canister type filter, so the 2017 Corolla Hatchback models (iM) will probably use it. PM me if anyobody needs oil filters. The part number is 90915-YZZA1 - USA made filters instead of the cheaper versions.

The new corollas and apparently the ims are changing over to the spin on. I dislike the plastic and dont trust plastic for something important like the oil

Not sure if you are talking about the plastic re-useable housing or the filter cartridges themselves (or both). As far as the cartridges are concerned though, I agree that the OEM ones (and most other third party ones such as K&N) use cheap plastics in the construction. This is why I go to the trouble of buying the TRD US ones (I usually buy about 6 at a time because of freight costs), as they are excellent quality. Very heavy duty - probably better than anything you'd see inside a full canister type one.


That said, I wish they would have just gone with the simple fully-replaceable cannisters. Oil changes are messier thanks to the cartridge style since you got to completely clean and dry the outer housing before putting a new cartridge inside it.


I actually bought a second housing simply to expedite the oil changes. I have one already perfectly cleaned to put on the car and then I can clean and dry the one that comes off the car in my own time. It does save quite a bit of time because the only way to properly clean the housing is to fully degrease the insides of it and then let it thoroughly dry outside (I do my oil changes in Autumn and Spring so I can leave the filter housing in the not-too-hot sun for 15 minutes and it is dry). Makes me wonder though what happens in dealerships where they don't have the luxury of time and simply whack the new cartridge straight into the dirty housing.

Good thoughts. Luckily I have the two years of the free oil changes before I have to mess with this.

Here's the parts. You will need 2 of the o-rings, there the same part number and 1 union and the bracket, that's what Toyota is calling it. The filter number written down is the f1 which is a little bit taller than the f2 that Toyota is saying to use.

So with this we'll be able to do canister type? If so this will def be my next mod!

Regarding part number 90915-YZZA1. Is this the filter for the 2017 Toyota IM? I plan to do all my oil change after the free 25k service from the dealer.

I put this part # in the cross reference check for 90915-YZZA1, and was told this is not compatible with 2017 Toyota IM.

I did this mod on my 2009 Corolla S Turbo. After doing the turbo I wanted to be able to add an oil cooler and you can't do it with a canister so I swapped the parts so I could use the spin on filter and add a sandwich plate for an oil cooler.

Here are the new parts needed.


Canister vs spin on.


Here is after removing the canister filter part.


After the spin on part is installed.


Now to just spin on the filter.
