Is this your first time ever doing an oil change on a vehicle? All manuals say specific tools are needed. While it is not always true, they do this for liability reasons. Should a person decide to do their own work and they used tools that the manufacture didn't list, and the work get messed up they can claim you didn't use the correct tools, per their instructions.dex3703 said:The manual says you need a wrench from Honda to get the oil filter off. Is this true?
