So I’d thought I’d give it a try in my Toyota Corolla. It has a 4AFC engine. It’s normal filter is on the left (Ryco part no. Z386).
Ryco Filters have a feature on their website which allows you to search for filters based on their dimensions. The dimensions we care about are Seam Diameter, Seal Diameter & Thread type. Looking up the details for the Z386, shows 68.00mm | 63.00mm | 3/4-16-UNF-2B.
* Other things to be aware of
- The main reason why people fit a larger oil filter is so that the oil has a much bigger filtration area. ie. more filter paper to filter the oil though.
- If your oil filter has a bypass valve, then be aware that a different filter to the recommended one may have a different strength bypass spring.
Disclaimer: use a non-standard filter at your own risk.
