Recommended Posts

Changing the oil on the vehicle.  replacing oil filter too.   Holy crap.  tight spaces, over-torqued filter.  cant get it off.  Have tried every filter wrench out there.  cant get a good angle for me to torque it off.  Ideas?

My HiSun Axis 500 is the same way. A small oil filter swivel wrench worked for me. The wrench is a metal band that tightens around the filter as you swivel the handle. Amazon has several. Smallest probably a 4” would work.

Yes!  I posted about this nightmare in the Coleman forum back in the fall of 2021.  I tried many different styles of wrenches (strap, etc).  Screwdriver.  None worked.  This is what you need along with an extension for your rachet:

Good luck.  Make sure no kids are around while you're doing this or they will learn some new words.

Well, I finally got it off.  Used a combination of techniques.  I had tried  the screwdriver thing  from underneath.  Limited space to get any leverage.  Craig,  I had purchased one of the Lisle tools.  Tried it but couldn't get it to grip correctly.  So, I went up top.  I had to remove what appears to be a breather tube that vents the crankcase/transmission.  Had a little more room to maneuver .  Tried that Lisle tool again; no luck.  Went back to screwdriver technique,  got it to budge slightly.  Did it a couple of times.  Incremental movement.   Then I went to a different tool from Lisle I think.  Looks like channel locks but with oil filter shaped jaws.  Got them on Amazon but available at most auto parts stores.  Come in a 2-pack, small and large.  Once I got the filter to budge, I applied  the grippers and was able to rotate the filter to a point where I could hand loosen it.  Success!!  Finally!  Put everything back together,  test drove, no leaks.  Beer-thirty!

Next was the first oil change on my riding lawnmower.  Same issue, over-torqued filter.  Used the  method as above.  I think the manufacturer over-torques some items to make sure they don't loosen during over seas shipping.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it😄

Thanks for the suggestions guys! 

Craig, from your picture with the out-building with the Texas flag I would guess you live in Texas.  I do.  Out in the Hill Country, near Fredericksburg.  West of Austin, northwest of San Antonio.
