    Just pound a long screwdriver through it and use it like a lever punch a hole to drain the oil first.

    The screw driver idea is great in theory but in this case it wasn't working.

    I ended up with a huge channel lock vise gripped together moving .000005 mm a turn until it finally busted.

    4.5 hour oil change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It works great...unless someone puts the filter on gorilla-tight.

    You could have machined your own claw wrench in less time. LOL!

    dont you love working on cars?

    my last oil change took two days start to finish, thanks to some genius jiffy loob tech stripping out my drain plug.
