Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

Which is where the fresh, clean oil should go, right?

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

I always put oil on the gasket and new oil inside the filter. Lately I have been able to remove by hand but still have a tough time doing it, maybe removing it cold maybe be easier than when it is hot

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

I fill the filter, too. About 3/4 full so I don't spill any when spinning it on. I know this may or may not be necessary, but I've just always done it as a best practice. In the back of my mind, I think it's better that the filtering element is soaked in oil beforehand rather than having it forced into a dry filter.

I wonder if Fram is still producing crap filters since it changed ownership?

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

After having to use the hammer and screw-driver technique for a filter that wouldn't budge with my regular filter wrench, I purchased one of these:

Works great and will fit any size filter that you have.

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

Lets just call this one and done:

My favorate oil filter removal tool when I was working at the dealer, at an independent shop, and now in my own shop. I get some ROP students through my doors every once in a while, and they usually start off with lube tech duties. Many of them on the first day will ask me for a filter wrench and look at me weird when I hand them my channel locks. I leave it up to them to figure it out.

It was a small business segment considering the size of Honeywell, not sure the new owners would bother. I am sure their sales are fine considering how many retailers sell them.

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

I had many cars that allow no room for any wrench or tool to be used. And the only wrench that will work has to be with a 3/8 extension and ratchet, like the one I posted on the link before.
