That trick is no longer valid as the filter's walls are pretty thin and almost guaranteed to get what you got.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.

Same as any other car. Eliminate the Mitsubishi Galant and this has probably already been answered.

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.

your stop light switch may have gone bad. it is located on the brake pedal under dash board. if the tail lights turn on when you turn on your lights then the problem will most likely be the switch '''(easy to replace)'''

Soap noodles are essentially already soap, which has been shredded or ground and pushed through an extruder dye and cut into "noodles".

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.

Inside a coconut, as you probably already know, is this white flesh. It's edible and sweet. When you remove it from the shell and shred it, the end result is shredded coconut.

Shred is a verb and a noun. Verb: We've already shredded all the paper. Noun: They don't have one shred of evidence against you.

you can program a key if you already have two known good keys. if not you will have to pay the dealer or a locksmith

Sauerkraut is shredded cabbage in the presence of 2-3% salt, acid-forming bacteria thrive and convert sugars in the cabbage into acetic and lactic acids, which then act as preservatives. So it is already preserved.

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.

Sorry, the 2 dr Sebring is actually a Mitsubishi and cannot add keys without a programming tool.

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.

Confusing question. MPG? Miles overall? Are you the original owner? Do you have maintenance records on upkeep? Are you using performance parts? How many miles do you have on it already? Please provide more information.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"He already has" is the correct statement.

The phrase "has already had' is correct.

The plugs i believe are near the exhaust manifold.... If you are unfamilliar with changing plugs you should not do it yourself Because the plugs are near such high heat they are prone to fouling Try to use NGK plugs and spring for the irridium As you may already know never change plugs on a engine that is warm or hot. First thing in the morning stone cold is the best time to do it. You can google ask a Mitsubishi Tech on the web for further assistance
