There are a number of reasons you should change the oil in your engine for better performance results, ranging from ridding your engine of unwanted debris and dirt to improving the quality of your oil. During a routine oil change, you will need to rely on a handful of tools, such as a wrench or socket, a drain pan, rags, and of course, new oil. It is also wise to work with protective safety gear like gloves and glasses. That being said, using an oil wrench requires more specific attention to detail than other tools used during an oil change, so for your better knowledge, this blog will explore how to use, as well as how not to use, an oil filter wrench.
