Oil filter wrench

Do I need one? Can I use another tool as a substitute?

exactly. who cares if you fuck up the old one..



btw just in case, dont ever use a filter wrench to tighten a oil filter. only ever should be as tight as you can get it by hand.

Actually, I think you're only supposed to tighten it about 1-1/3 turns after the seal touches the engine. It will either say this on the filter or in the manual. I don't know how true this is but I think you can damage the seal if you tighten it as tight as you can get it, even by hand. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Oil filter wrench

You wont need one to tighten it you do that by hand....tho there have been times ive needed the wrench to get mine off.

i tried the hammer and screw driver once...didnt work lol

Never going to happen :D but Ive seen it happen. What alot of people dont realize is when your car first went to a dealership a machine tightened one on, these machines tighten the sheeet out of them.

you're supposed to poke a hole in the filter and there in it will release pressure and easily twist off. Anyone who hits threads is a dumb_ass

nah, when i got my lude the filter was on so tight no one could get it off, even with a wrench/cresent...so we did the screw driver the hole didnt work, we had to shoot the screw driver all the way through the filter and use it as a handle bar....
