What if your oil filter on your 1993 chevy s10 2.8 is stuck you tried to take it off with the oil filter tool but it only bent the filter really bad how can you get it off?
Drive a screw-driver through the oil filter. This will give you two
handles to hold onto, the screw-driver handle and the other end
that is sticking out the other side. Grab on, then turn. Make sure
the screw-driver is long enough to go through and stick out the
other side. Also be usre to "stick it" at an angle so that nothing
is in the way and once it is in, it can be turned.
punch a screw driver through the filter it might get messy but the
job will be done
Improved answer?: Be sure to allow enough room to turn the
screwdriver!!! A second alternative would be to carefully use a
screwdriver like a cold chisel, to tap the filter loose. Do so by
using it on the base of the filter where there is more metal to get
a bite on. Again be sure to leave yourself some room, most likely
you will need to turn the filter almost a quarter of a turn before
it will break free. Use extreme diligence not to mare the surface
of the engine block or to punch any holes in any other components.
