can't get my oil filter out?

I can't do my oil change without my oil filter out. It won't budge taking out that screw holding the filter. I was wondering if there was anyone around who can stop by Pomona, Diamond Bar, WAlnut, Brea, or Fullerton to help me take it out. It just won't budge and I'm currently at 5,600 miles.

I'm at school right now but I live in Pomona. Hmmm. Fontana is a drive from here.

If you want, stop by my house later and I'll see if we can try to get it off. The 250's still use the old style filter, so the bolt is a pain.

spray the bolt with WD-40 let it soak and then try

A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need the advice.

That's weird; mine never was a pain in the butt to take out.

You're probably just not doing it right... J/K

The drain plug/bolt and the oil filter cover bolt are both the same size bolt.. I believe it's a 17mm... A box end wrench have always been sufficient for me to remove both...

The oil filter cover has an o-ring around the base of the filter and a couple of o-rings on the pick-up tube.. Sometimes they can stick a little to their respective mating surfaces but it should come off... If it hasn't been removed in a while it might take a little more physical effort to remove...

Just give it another shot...

Come and play.. Come and play...
Forget about the movement...!
