    I searched this several X but just got noise... I have probably a dozen 3/8 sq. drive filter tools but non fit the OEM filter properly. Looking for proper socket type, 3/8 drive - done with strap wrenches or adjustable jank. Please enlighten me -

    Thx

    Do you really need a tool for a 4.0 filter? How tight are you guys going?

    IKR the 4.0L has the easiest oil filter ever.

    Honestly I would try the rubber kind because it fits and is cheap.

    the problem with shitty stamped ones is they get stuck on.

    Cast metal ones do not. But theyre expensive. I already have a Mercedes tool that slightly fits. So I just smack it on with a rag or two in between.

    Hand tighten and then 1/4 turn past, no tool is needed. Very easily accessible on the 4.0. To remove just smack a screwdriver through and turn, also doubles over to drain it out.

    I am an old guy who is not built like a gorilla. I do my own oil changes and just snug the new filter on. No leaks, and no problem removing it by hand at the next oil change. :thumbsup:

    Haha you make a very good point, thx.
    I'm so used to the traditional 3/4 turn (by hand) , but that's for flat ring gaskets - the O-ring no doubt requires a whole lot less

    I use the Walmart version of this for pretty much all my vehicles. It's only needed for removing stubborn filters; installing filters is just hand-tight.
