im gonna look for one of those "cap" wrenches but they look horrible
Curious how you would dent the "new" filter....suposed to be hand tight. Not put on with a wrench. Just fill the new filter with oil and lube the rubber gasket with fresh oil and turn on by hand.

My strap wrench dented it from the metal bar conected to the strap itself. I used the biggerst screw driver I had for leverage - less effort. Damn filter dented right in, good thing it was the old filter....

Re: Oil Change HELP!

This is the pump I use from harbor freight on my vehicles now. I bought it to add tranny fluid on my 04 disco...I bought a TDI jetta and the oil is much easier sucked out of the dipstick hole than dropping skid pans etc.. you will need some extra length of tube to reach far enough into the oil pan. It should go i through the dipstick hole longer than the length of the dipstick itself. You should google all this before you do it. The infos easily accessible.

I dont believe your vehicle has a drain plug for the oil. My 04 aint got a dipstick on the tranny. Some reasoning behind it is sealing the components to prevent water and dirt intrusion. Like I said ,now, I dont pull the plug on any of my vehicles any more its just much easier shoving the hose in there and pumping straight into an empty oil jug.
