Oil Filters / Wrench size

Have read that the OEM filter would need a 65MM 14 flute cup type wrench. Can anyone verify please as well as a place that I can purchase? Also will aftermarket filters have the same exterior dimensions as the OEM? Took my RL to tire shop and they overtightened filter and now I need a wrench and prefer the cup style. Won't be making that mistake again!

Thanks

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

H and A sells the cup filter wrench. As far as other filter sizes? I don't think they are the same, but I could be wrong. I have both a cup and strap. I've used both as well. As a few times the filter has been so tight that the cup wrench slips, and had to use the strap one.

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

I can't tell you the mm sizes, but I do know that my filter wrench from Advance Auto fits the A01 perfectly, but I need to put a round of gaffer tape around the A02s to make them grip.

(I and other members strongly prefer the A01s).

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

I used a pair of pump pliers on my first oil change to get mine off. Its not ideal but its all I had and it did the job. Dealer had it so damn tight it was't even funny. Hand tight people hand tight that's all it takes.

Why is this? Any reason not to use any that I have sitting in my garage?

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

Most of us don't like filters made by Fram, besides the same filters have had one or two recalls, once for defective seal.

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

I got a set of these for all our cars , I know some filters do not quite fit properly, I had issues with the supertech filters, all others, wix, purolator, napa gold fit just fine. Not sure about the Honda Filter, in any case for $5.99 just the aluminum is worth the cash probably.http://www.harborfreight.com/4-piece...hes-94096.html

Re: Oil Filters / Wrench size

I think Wix, napa, and Purolator are the safest bets all around.

And the Purolator Pure 1 has non slip paint so haven't had to use a wrench for as long as I can remember. Of course an over tightened filter is a different story.

My hands have been a little warm a few times, but I let things cool enough not to get burned. Also, if the oil is too hot, then its too easy to get a little hole if you use the freezer bag over the filter trick and that's no fun, and I wouldn't know anything about dropping the whole thing, missing my drip pan, and covering myself and driveway with oil.

Thank you for the response. I maintain two Pilots and my Ridgeline for my family so I usually have a bunch of filters ready to go. I have a couple AO2 filters left on the shelf and six AO1's. So, AO1 it is.
