its a 2.5 / 4 - I think the combo of from above and below is going to be our approach.

having an assistant in the garage is outstanding, glad the boy's interested in all of this stuff.
End cap filter socket that fits a 3/8"drive ratchet will make your life great. They're about $5 for a good metal one at the parts store. I go from underneath with it. First filter wouldn't budge until I bought one.

Part Number 25402, that's "OEM" brand.

Changed out my front brake calipers. The passenger side started locking up on me. They were in pretty sad shape lol... Did both sides, $25 for each after the core refunds. Easy fix.

thanks, thats what i was drawing a conclusion i needed... the Suburban will benefit from this tool too. the HHR is a cartridge insert - probably the cleanest car i have ever had for oil changes... gotta work hard to spill with that one.

Good deal. Yeah I started to crunch the filter in when I put one of the chain type straps on it...that's how I knew it was time for some heavy artillery. No problems since!

Found out how to check codes, fix problems, and reset computer. It threw a P0456 code at me last night. Evap leak. It was the gas cap.

haven't crushed one with a rubber strap / plastic handle yet, but when they get oily - no better than bare handed...

speaking of which - comment was made earlier about not tightening with a wrench... hand tight is actually reasonable?

am I the only one who gets oil on my hands when changing oil?

maybe I'm not talented enough to move the pan quick enough from the distance pee point when the plug comes out, to the dribble point beneath the drain that starts at the same instant???

Stop putting the filter on so tight. I do mine hand tight, comes off by hand as well.

Hand tight is all that's required... even states that on the box.

I get my fair share of oil on my hands too
