This is the tool I have used for most of my professional career with a nice compact 3/8" ratchet.:what kind of tool did you guys use to get the oil filter off.... when i tried i juss could not get that damn thing off... .i even bought 5 different types of tools... and my dad couldnt even get it off either... ... as i was reading Acura torques the filter??? since id tried i juss been taking it to the acura dealship to change the oil.. . but id rather do it myself and use the synthetic oil.... any suggestiong n e one???
I first bought it when Toyota came out with that little micro looking can they use. Ever since then, I use it on most every spin-on filter I change. This will only remove the filter because; you should never wrench tighten a filter. :nono:
As an FYI for the drain plug, the crush seal should be replace everytime the oil is drained. The seal is designed for a one time use. It does the work of creating a tight seal minimizing the need of exsessively torquing the drain plug.
A can of brake clean is also handy to have for final clean up of any oil spill or drippage. It leaves the area looking untouched and dry.
Hope this was helpful.
