Stuck Oil Filter Cap
Hello, new to the forums here but I have searched the other oil filter threads with no luck on a solution for my problem.
I have a 2011 Kia Sorento that I'm trying to change the oil filter in. The filter cap is on there so tight nothing seems to be working for me. I have tried a adjustable crescent wrench, a 27mm box wrench, a adjustable oil filter wrench, and nothing seems to budge it. Is there a special socket or cap wrench for this like some other cars have?
The O-ring appears to be pinched between the housing and the cap, I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.
I would like to try some of suggestions I might receive on here before I take it to the dealer and have them get it off.
Thanks in advance.
