Looking for a great oil filter wrench?

I'm looking for an oil filter wrench for my 2008 3.7 liters on amazon. There are so many different sizes and they go in millimeters. What size is my filter? What oil filter wrench do you use that will make the removal process easier? I just did my oil change yesterday and struggled with a strap removal tool from the top.

I suggest something like this. It WILL remove the filter regardless of how tight it is. The cup type are prone to slip.

If it ain't 4X4, it ain't a JEEP!!!

I’m partial to this type of wrench. Generally easier to fit into wherever it needs to be, and grips tenaciously. They come in large and small. I used the small on my 5.7L filter

I also tend to buy K&N oil filters. They are decent quality and have a hex nut molded into the bottom that allows very easy removal. Never fuss with an oil wrench again

I have the same style MobileHomer shared. I bought it probably 10 years ago and it works on everything from my riding mower/ATV to my old Land Rover.

As an added bonus, it works great on large PVC threaded couplings for pools and hot tubs

That's pretty awesome! There's also a set that has those as well as some kind of a chomper. What is the millimeter size of our filters anyway?

If you have the small for your 5.7l the I most likely could use a small as well for my 3.7L?

Wix filters rank high on every review I've seen, but the convenience of of the socket tip on the K&N has won me over.

I dunno lol. I have a CRD and my wife has a 3.6 WK2, which both use cartridge filters.

But I've used the big filter wrench on Dodge 318 and 4.7 V8s, Briggs & Stratton 18HP V-twins, John Deere 20HP V-twins, Polaris 325cc, Toyota 22RE and 3VZ-E, and Nissan L28ET.

Basically, I have yet to find a filter that it won't work on lol

PH3600 has a diameter of 2.98" (75.7mm)

However if you get the plier type of filter wrench linked above, it will cover just about all automotive applications so the diameter of your filter shouldn't matter.
