I have come to the unfortunate end of my pre-paid maintenance (50,000) since I first purchased my vehicle.
I do have problem though. I bought the OEM filter to do my oil change. I read that a 14mm will do the job for letting the oil out, and so far it does fit.
However, the Toyota Techs must have used some power tool to tighten the bolt to where it is nearly impossible to undo. It is so tight that the socket keeps slipping off.
Has anyone had this problem? The tool that I have is not great, so I definitely want to invest in a tool that is strong enough to undo it, at the same time I don't know much about them. The tool I have appears to be a short wratchet handle that is "5.5 inches long. The socket is 14mm and 2 inches long. This tool has seen better days.
Can anyone recommend anything that will untighten the Toyota Tech's deadly grip without having to spend more days setting up an appointment and waiting?
Any input will be appreciated.
