SOURCE: oil filter is stuck tried

This is a major drag for sure.. sorry to hear you are having this problem.

Obviously someone did not lube the rubber seal before putting the filter on.. remember it's stuck because the rubber seal is compressed against the machined surface..the filter is not stuck on the threads.

A few things you can try.. single sided razor blade run around the base as best you break the seal.. or a thin bladed screwdriver.. be careful and try to avoid scarring the machined surface.

A band or strap wrench.. you may need to use sandpaper between the band and the filter.. to get extra grip

A large pair of C shaped pliers..

The last step is to drive a screw driver through the filter and reef it around.. very messy.. at some point you will expose the filter holes in the base of the oil filter.. and you can place a dull chisel,punch or screwdriver in one of these and use a hammer to drive it off or break it free.

Make sure to clean that machined base to ensure that no tiny pieces of the old filter seal remain. Very important to do this.. if that surface is not nice and flat.. chances of a presure leak are greatly increased and could happen within moments of first run.. days or weeks later.. and it's a real mess... not to foget the potential harm from loss of oil.

A little silicone grease or even clean motor oil on the new filter seal before applying will be a step I am sure you will never forget. Sorry to hear you had this problem.. extremely frustrating to say the least.

Best of Luck!

Where is the leak coming from on my 1995 honda accord lx

oil leaks around the filter generally mean that the oil filter is too tight and the gasket is damaged , filter installed on a dry gasket, -damaging the gasket, lip of the filter is faulty--manufacturing problem, the old gasket for the filter was not removed before fitting a new filter--- gasket squeezing out
remove the filter, best replace with a new filter, remove any old gasket stuck to the housing, put a thin film of oil on the new gasket and screw up to touch then 1/4 turn ( fitting instructions on the box or filter)
do not over tighten

Oil leak at filter

If it's at the filter replace the filter. If it's at the mount/engine side replace the seal/gasket. The filter bracket is taken off by removing the filter. The screw that the filter goes on has a nut built on it. remove it to remove the bracket. If it is a seal get a new one and add some silicone. If it is a gasket, clean it off, just use silicone.

98 grand prix rear doors won't open

Sometimes..........tapping with a rubber hammer around the door latch .....which is about halfway down the door at the rear of the door from the exterior.......THEN pulling the lock button open on the rear door will allow you the door.
Do not touch the outside handle until the inside lock button is triggered from inside the door.
If this does open the door (s) do not RE LOCK them until the latches inside the doors are WELL lubricated.....this lubrication will require inside door panel removal.
