If you dont have a oil filter removal tool. you can use a screwdriver if you have room, use a large screw driver penetrate the side off the filter make sure you drive it far enough into the filter so you can use it like a handle and carefully turn counter clockwise. When you drive the screwdriver into the filter be sure to do so on the side and low on the filter if you go to high you may hit the mounting neck and damage the threads . Hope this helps.

Does he have an oil filter wrench? if not get one, about $5 from any auto parts store. On the really stubborn ones I drive a large screwdriver blade or round pry bar through the filter casing and get it loose that way, jumbo vise grip channel lock pliers also do the trick

Oil light keeps coming on at an idle

ok. oil ight is probably nothing more than a faulty pressure switch.You can have pressure checked at same screw in port. 15psi is ok...just. very cheap to replace. Ign control module is probably the cut-out fault. You cant really test it; repair by substitution is the trick.
