That's exactly what happened. That Protech filter was a bear to get off, and it was only on there for 14 miles!! I want to meet the gorilla who put this filter on. I think he might have paid for an engine or two in the past because of a loose oil filter.

I think it also has to do with the fact that they have more leverage from standing underneath a vehicle compared to most of us who use ramps. shrug Regardless, I've noticed the same thing when I've worked on cars that were dealership maintained prior. I have had to crush a few filters getting them off.

Some how the bottom of the 5qt jug was punctured and a small amount of oil seeped out. I didn't have a spare container to transfer the oil into. So, I decided I would use it for my OCI that was due. Just coincidence!

2004 Camry V6, 61,???. Mobil I 0W-30 and Denso 150-1002 oil filter out and in. The Denso oil filters are very well made and you can't overtighten one. And I didn't spill one drop this time.
