That trick is no longer valid as the filter's walls are pretty thin and almost guaranteed to get what you got. It will take a little creativity and perserverance to get this thing off. Channel locks would be my next weapon, tryng to get as close to the base of the filter as possible. Just shoot for a little turn at a time or more shred action will happen. I would be happy with 1/8" of a turn at a time and get a new grip. Post your technique you succeeded with. To avoid this in the future though, apply a little "Door-eze" to the rubber seal that will contact the oilfilter housing. This stuff is bee's wax and will not affect the seal, just make it WAY easier to remove the next time. I do it on every filter change. Cost? about $2 from your local hardware store.

Should I get a new parmesan grater or just buy parmesan that's already shredded?

It comes down to two factors, taste and convenience. Many believe that freshly-grated or shredded cheese tastes better than pre-shredded, because cheese that is packaged already shredded is coated in an anti-caking agent that can affect taste and melting. However, many prefer the convenience of pre-shredded cheeses. One final thing to consider is price--you do tend to pay more for convenience, so you might get more bang for your buck if you purchase parmesan in block or wedge form, and grate it yourself.

What do you do if a compression test for a Mitsubishi Montero reveals below average compression?

Common Montero problem. It is time for new rings. Oil is seeping into your cylinders. You can drive the truck like this for a long time without really having a problem - just make sure you keep checking your engine oil level. If your state does emission checks, you're going to fail. If you get the rings done, you'd do well to complete an engine rebuild while you're at it; the motor's already wide open, so you're going to see significant savings on labor.

Why would a 2000 Mitsubishi montero be smoking after it sits at a light for a few mins.?

Common Montero problem. I'll bet you're burning oil - do you find it is a quart low every 4,000 miles or so? Get your favorite mechanic to do a compression blow-down test - I'll bet you need rings.

Is it possible to change an automatic transmission to a manual on your 01 Mitsubishi Eclipse?

It IS possible, but not realistic, as there are lots of hidden difficulties apart from "only" ripping the tranny out. The sensible way is to sell the car you have and buy one with the features that you want already in it.


What kind of AC fluid do I use to recharge my 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse?

I think you mean refrigerant, and it uses R134a. If it's a 2001 and already needs a recharge, I would recommend having a shop locate the leak before attempting to fill it.


Can you put a turbo on a 1999 Mitsubishi eclipse rs?

For the right price you can put a turbo on just about anything. Unfortunately for you the cost to put a turbo on a non-turbo eclipse is probably more than going out and buying an eclipse with a turbo already on it.


Is it better to chew leaf tobacco like beechnut than can tobacco like skoal?

I tried both dipping and chewing tobacco. Chewing tobacco is much milder; it is not shredded, so has less surface area to release nicotine and oils. This allows for a longer and milder soak. Dipping tobacco, which comes in a can, is shredded; thus, most of the oils are already on the surface of the tobacco, which creates an instant hit of nicotine and oils. If you chew often throughout the today to stay awake as I do, then use chew; it will be less harsh on your mouth and stomach.


How do you replace the motor mounts on a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse?

Yes, but only in case if the mounts on your car are already shot. If it's the case you should replace them ASAP because damaged mounts are known for causing very serious mechanical problems to transmission.

Turn the key to the ON position (do not start the car). Leave it that way for approx. one hour. Then the radio will go back to the CODE sequence. You will then need to enter the correct code to get the radio to work.
