Ratchet Tie Down Strap Loosens OIl Filter
Larry Wood, Waldo, Ohio: "I had trouble changing the oil on my 2002 Ford F-150 4-WD pickup. I was able to get a good grip on the filter, butáthere wasn't enough room toáturn it or even work it loose with my filter wrench.
á  "To solve the problem I used a ratchet tie downástrap. I woundáthe end of the strap up in my hand and slid it over the filter, then pulled the strap tight around the filter and attached the hook end to the pickup frame. As I started working the ratchet, the filter came loose very easily.áThen I pulled on the strap, and the filteráspun almost all the way off."
