What size torque wrench should I use??

What size Torque wrench should I use for opening the bolt of my oil drain tank( 98 lude)...Also what size wrench should I use to remove oil filter nut??? Asyou can tell I am not good at tools and have decided tobuy a set( oil hanges are getting costly now)...+ can you guys please tell me how much oil to fill in a 98 lude???( My dipstick is showing an error so I'm not going to use it to check the oil level)

I believe its like 10 or 17 or sumthing like that. Just keep fitting them in until you get the perfect fit.

Just changed my oil a couple days ago. For the oil pan use a 17mm wrench. To remove the oil filter I used an adjustable wrench to loosen it up. You can just tighten the new oil filter by hand.

I'm not sure of the exact size of the socket, but what you wanna get a socket set, not a torque wrench.

When you drop your oil, and put the plug back in. Make sure its snug. Not real tight. You may end up stripping out the drain pan threads. so beware of this.

you can pick up a socket set for like 10 bucks at home depot or pep boys or w/e. Its going to be a size between 13 and 17. I really dont remember what it was.

not 10 though

My VIN says i Have a BB6 engine( JHM BB6144..) Does this mean I do not have VTEC in the car??? will this affect how much oil I add...( I do not plan to use the dipstick cause it's giving me a faulty reading)

Re: What size torque wrench should I use??

That's your VIN, not engine number. But it tells you enough information to say that yes you are equipped with VTEC. It also tells me that you have a base model with a manual trans.

All BB6 chassis Hondas had the H22.
