    how to remove a stuck oil filter

    Hey T.R. I have a huge issue. My oil filter is stuck and i can't get it off. I bought a special tool to help get it off and it cause the oil filter to crush and tear into bits. I checked online but nothing is working. the only remaining part is the actual top end "lid" with the holes in it. Do any of you have any idea on how i can get that off? the disk has the threads in the dead center and i can't screw it off. i tried the razor thing and still nothing.


    Thanks

    Screwdriver and a hammer. Put the screwdriver on what's left of the oil filter and tap it with a hammer in a counter clockwise direction. It will slowly turn and eventually come loose.

    you probably didn't do it high enough on the filter. if you do that to close to the end then yes, it'll do exactly what you just said.

    not rocket science

    I think he meant put the screwdriver in the holes where the oil comes down. if u cant do that then take the engine out and put in a engine with a good filter.

    lol.


    So this is just a regular spin-on can?

    why don't you get two vicegrips and put them opposing each other and slowly spin it out?

    I have cartridge filter, and synth oil in my g/fs car so i forget how cans are set up sometimes. It's just that metal plate with the holes in it that's there? It should have enough of a lip to grab onto though... I can't imagine it'd be THAT stuck.

    LOGIC? You seriously want to invoke logic in a conversation about fake hijackings, missiles hitting the pentagon, and bombs planted throughout the world trade center? I thought it was a given that logic was checked at the door when entering one of these threads.

    i will take a picture of it. it's a 3 angle grip and it basically crused the fuck out of it because it only is about 2 inches deep so to answer psychos questions yes it was at the bottom because they made it that way. I'm about to go home and try the screw driver idea

    Should have bought this



    Works everytime! As long as you put it as close to the top as possible.

    yeah pretty much, and if it doesnt (sometimes it can slip) a layer of electrical tape on the inside then clamp and pull again it should spin.

    actually I cant remember if it was the KA or the SR but this oil filter was insane to get off. It was like if you could have used an impact gun putting it on, thats what someone did. Some cussing and muscle and yanking and kicking things and sweating taking off an oil filter it finally budged. Still we didnt put holes in it lol
