I am hearing mixed opinions how much should I tighten an oil filter. Does it depend on car or filter type? How do I find out the proper torque number that I need to apply to an oil filter?
Update: I wish I asked this question before may last Oil Change. My Toyota Matrix 2012 oil filter cap was VERY tight (perhaps done by the dealer)
So I used this tool to open it, then perhaps very much overtighten it.
I though there is pressure in the Oil pan, so I have to tighten it hard.
If my oil pan survives this time, I won't do it again...
Thank you, everyone, for help and comments
