STUCK oil filter!!!! WTF?!?! Can I heat it?
So I'm doing the final preps to get my girl back out on the street and I go for the oil change, drain the oil...etc. but my friggen K&N filter is like WELDED on there.
I've tried everything, oil filter wrench, vice grips, that god damn shitty 17 mm bolt instantly stripped.
Would it hurt to heat up the filter to try and remove it? Heating causes expansion...maybe it'll work? Anyone heated up a filter before and did it work?
