Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 210K miles
The last two times that I have changed the oil in my camry the oil filter is full of oil! Since it sits upside down on the block, shouldn't the oil drain out when you drain the engine oil? There appears to be a drain hole or a recirc hole at the bottom of the oil filter mounting area. If this is plugged does that mean that there is no flow through the oil filter during operation? This drain hole or recirc hole goes into the block slanting to the left. I put a rubber coated wire down this hole seven inches and it was full of oil and never did drain. What do I do?
