I'm trying to change my oil on my VR6, but the filter cover doesn't seem to want to come off...
I bought a filter cover remover piece from Pep Boys, but it doesn't fit! they say it fits, but the "nut" that protrudes from the bottom is too big for the remover...
I can't get it to come off w/ wrenches and whatnot, and don't have a socket big enough!
HELP!

Re: HELP! Oil filter cover! (92BlkSLC)

I wouldnt use channel locks, or even a big socket. Use a filter wrench - the kind that are metal bands that wrap around the housing, then you twist them and it comes right off. Those filter housings suck.

PS. Sorry about the late info
