    Ugh. Went to change the filter and ran into a small problem.

    I bought a Fram filter, PH3593A. I didn't have a filter wrench, so I bought on that fits one size and attaches to a socket wrench. It fits the Fram perfectly. So I get under the car, and the wrench doesn't fit the filter on the car. Is the first filter they put on the car larger? Is Fram wrong about the size? ugh.

    i dont have the oil filter in front of me but i believe that the stock one was a little fatter. Not sure. I don't really remember u dont need a wrench after the stock ones comes off. You have the sure grip on the fram and it's in an easy spot

    That sounds like the correct Fram part #. Filters from different manufacturers are often different sizes. I like to use a bigass channel lock as a filter wrench. See that thread you referenced for a discussion on tools.

    I use a Bosch Premium oil filter, part# 3310. It is smaller in diameter than the stock one.

    Personally, I don't like Fram oil filters. Their Extra Guard and Tough Guard filters use a molded plastic bypass valve with no seal and the filter end caps are made of cardboard.

    That's not called for. Give the guy a break. I'd say he's pretty brave to go ahead and do his own oil change when he obviously has no idea what he's doing. Ya gotta learn somehow.

    hey you guys

    where do I find that special levitating oil?
    When restoring my first "ride", a 71 Ford Torino, I used cut up beer cans as backer for bondo. Theory was, aluminum wouldn't rust, so why not?
