It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned pro or a weekend warrior, we all hate how messy you (and your car!) get during an oil change. It seems like some of the auto designers made a point to put the oil filter in a spot that the oil will have to drain down the side of the engine, or the car, or even worse; your arm when removing the filter. Here at Eastwood we hate the idea of getting our detailed engine bay all oily every time we changed the oil in our restored and modified rides.
We now have a solution to help save the mess when doing an oil change with our new No-Mess Oil Filter Wrenches. These handy little wrenches come in 3 generic sizes to fit most oil filters. Simply slip the wrench with bellow over the block and use your 3/8″ ratchet to loosen the filter. The flexible bellow seals against the block to help catch 99% of the oil that is released from the filter. You can then drop the wrench and filter and pour the contents into your drain pan. Simple as that! It also works in reverse for those that like to pre-fill your new filter with oil before installing.
