I would like to know if the oil filter bolt on the block of all of the 7th gens are the same diameter and pitch. I *think it is 3/4 -16, but I could be wrong...am I ? Does someone know ? If not, what is it ?

thanks

3/4rth? Japanese cars use metric not american standard

Japanese - 10, 12, 14, 17 etc.

American Standard is - 9/16, 3/4, 1/2 etc.

actually, james, the thread pitch on 6th gens, and basicly all toyotas for that matter are 3/4 16 :)
the ONLY place you'll find an standard size on the car. :)
