So I had my first somewhat real foray into the world of working on a mid engined car today as I opted to change the oil in my MR2. First I took about 10 minutes to actually find the oil filter as its buried deep within the 4A-GE, and looks seemingly impossible to change. Jacking the car up and finding good spots for the jack stands was probably the most difficult part of the whole process. The drain plug was easy to get too and came off like a breeze. As for changing that oil filter all I really had to do was get underneath the car and awkwardly contort my arm and hand to get on it and after that it was a simple matter of unscrewing the old on and screwing in the new one. $8 worth of filter, roughly $20 worth of oil and about an hour of my time were quite sufficient in improving the feel in my AW11. Have a crazy autocrossing MR2 for your time
