    Default 5.7 oil filter wrench

    Hey Guys,
    Toyota tells me that the oil filter wrench for the 5.7 V8 is a special animal that will cost around $25 if/when they can get them.
    What is the story? I was also told that a 65-67mm wrench will work. I sure do not want to break or strip anything.
    Got any feedback?
    Ken

    You can purchase an oil filter end wrench, size 65mm 14 flute from NAPA for $8.99. It is made of a polymer material and works very well.

    I would not recommend using the 65/67 combination. Purchase a 65mm, 14 flute wrench, as Rudy suggested. The combination wrench will not fully engage the housing and it will slip.

    I bought a 65 and it slipped. I ended up buying one that wraps around it and though it takes more time, it works.

    I also bought the polymer #5 wench, 67/65 for $5.99. Mine also slipped but after I got the housing off I noticed that there are ridges on the housing that prevent the 65mm portion from engaging all the way. I cut 4 grooves with a 3/8" round file until the wrench goes on without rocking. Works now.

    PS after a number of oil changes this wrench sucks. It slips. I bought a metal one and now it gets wedged and stuck on the filter and is very hard to remove. I need a better one.

    After doing some research on the web I went out and bought a 65-67mm 14 flute aluminum oil filter wrench from Lordco Autoparts. Junk. Bought a 65mm 14 flute oil filter wrench from the local auto parts store. Junk. Had them order in the KD Tools 65mm 14 flute oil filter wrench that almost everyone on the net recommends for the new 5.7 and it fits like a glove. The multi size wrenches slip and the cheap chinese crap doesn't fit properly. Do yourself a favour and buy the KD Tools part # 3253 for a couple extra bucks, you won't regret it.

    Don't buy the plastic one. I have one and it just spins no matter how hard you push. Get a metal one!

    No one local has the KD3253 wrench, but I found it the cheapest with shipping here Pelican Parts.com - 65mm End Cap Oil Filter Wrench It was $13.00 to Callahan, FL. Happy Holidays

    Just got it in the mail on 03 January. Fast shipping. Take care.

    I tried the Advance Auto version but it would slip. Ended up with the high dollar one from Toyota, it does not slip at all. This whole process to change oil is insane. Never thought I would say this but Ford does a much better job by putting the filter right on top of the engine (diesel).

    The Tacoma has the filter on top, so it's not that Toyota doesn't know how to do it.

    As for the wrench, buy the $3 64/65 mm 14 flute wrench from Walmart!

    That makes it even worse, it seems to me Toyota went out of their way to make this the hardest oil change on earth. I have owned and changed oil on probably 15 different cars/trucks in my life and nothing compares with the Tundra.
