  • Q:

    Can this wrench be used to unscrew only the cap of the filter? I had a filter housing rip like a soda can and now I'm left with the disk that attaches to the block. any recommendations on using this tool for the job?

      I'm happy to help, Dave! Very doubtful this tool will help with this situation. May have to carefully remove with punch/chisel and hammer. Not sure what else to try here with this situation. If it is an aluminum block, you would want to be very careful doing this so you do not mar the mating surface badly. However, I'd recommend you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic to done this job.

      Good question John, this part will loosen even the most difficult oil filters. The OTC 3-leg wrenches will accommodate filters from 2.500 to 5.250 inches and use either a 1/2 inch ratchet or a 13/16 inch wrench.

      It can be used to tighten and loosen....remember to oil the threads first, then tighten with hand first and then just 1/3 of a turn with the wrench...this way it makes it easier the next time you have to remove the filter.
