Re: Changing oil filters

Jump to solution

Good idea to loosen the filter while it is warm.  I drain the oil first, too..  If the filter is upside down, sometimes it works to punch a hole in it and let it drain into a pan before removing it.


Airplane engines have filters in the most god-awful places.  The often use light metal such as flashing bent into the right shape and use it to drain the filter before removing it.  Sometimes you put a bail or handle on it to hold it in place.
