My friend has this one and it seems to work well enough actually. I'm going to order one for myself right now. I have a magnetic phone mount that goes in my CD slot that works really well due to the layout in my car. I might use a spare phone to run as extra gauges and a music player. You could get a BlueDriver but those are about $100 though I hear they are really awesome. Though honestly for just $10 it can't hurt to at least try it out.

Edit: For $20 this one looks to be a bit nicer. I'm ordering one for myself right now. Thanks for reminding me. These are really handy tools and just plain fun to play around with.

i've been really happy with those Hansen trays. Works great for the standard-size sockets. The problems always come when you get to the weird sockets, like swivels and spark plugs and stuff. For my swivels I just keep them on the rail they were bought with, and then I just got some plastic divider thingies from menards [edit: this one and those fit my "normal" ratchets, the extended swivels, and spark plugs. Actually in my top drawer i have two of those, and then the second one has my extensions in one pocket and then pens/lights in the lower.

Yeah, I know it's a small chance. But sometimes you'll see a description of a problem and go "THAT'S EXACTLY IT!".

Oh? Well -that- I can help out with, for under $30! Setup is mainly bluetooth pairing and turning on the app, worked instantly for me. App decodes codes or looks them up for you, too!
Here's an adapter:

And here's the app to use it ($5):

Itunes (I haven't used this, but have heard the name recommended before):

I have used this exact tool many times. It works very well with minimal effort. Do not get the engine hot for long. 5 min max to allow the aluminum head to expand enough but not the steel plug. Use 1//2 hand tools as well, 3/8 tend to flex. Source- Ford Tech.

u/1HONDAPRELUDE · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

I got these for around $30 and absolutely love 'em. The magnetic and swivels are great.

u/FesteringNeonDistrac · 4 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

So I just saw this on Amazon last night and ordered it immediately. No idea how well it works but it looks like it will save your sanity if it does.

u/lemoncoke · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Sure, I have this one. I like the fact that it's all metal because these things produce a lot of vacuum. You just take the dipstick out and feed the plastic tube down the dipstick tube. It goes all the way into the bottom of the oil pan/sump and gets pretty much every drop of oil out. Just a piece of advice - it goes a lot quicker when the oil is warm so it's less viscous. Also, if your dipstick tube is wide enough, you can use a larger diameter plastic tube to speed it up a lot more.

do yourself a favor and get a nice pair of flexible hose clamp pliers

Barring that, even just regular hose clamp pliers are miles ahead of using whatever random pliers are laying in your toolbox.

u/senorpoop · 26 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

> PB blaster

Allow me to introduce you to Aero Kroil. I used PB Blaster for years, then a machinist friend introduced me to this stuff. You'll never look back.

u/TeamJim · 4 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

That's an inexpensive one. I've got it for personal use and it's pretty solid.

u/myself248 · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop


I've won bets with a can of Kroil and a Knipex Cobra.

u/tdgrim89 · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

You guys need the right tool. A good oil filter wrench makes a world of difference on an aluminum block. I do these filters every day, they tighten gradually with every heat cycle so it's normal for them to be insanely tight 6k miles later. In all my career at Subaru I've never seen anyone use a tool to tighten these filters, they are always done by hand.

u/TB_Fixer · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

If you're ever doing these plugs; you gotta have the removal tool. Once the plug breaks, this tool is pretty slick and even the rear plugs (which are most common to break) aren't that big a deal to get out.

u/aae42 · 3 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

local lube shop just hand tightens the oil filters


then they put this on it:

u/hobodoompants · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

This could be the subject of a subreddit all on it's own. I do have to mention though that these have changed my life:

Highly highly highly recommended!

u/raddue · 3 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

I bought one of these and it's an absolute joy:

Makes the oil changes on my '06 STI and my wife's '07 Forester a breeze. Granted, you can't use the wrench to put the new filters on but at least you won't burn yourself trying to take them off.

u/nobilisvir · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

I've found these work better than anything I've ever tried.

TEKTON 5866 12-Inch Oil Filter Pliers

u/bjjtatai · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

I hear good things about this one also. Reads ABS modules and more I believe.

u/Fauropitotto · 6 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Probably with one of these:

They break so frequently that there are special tools to deal with the issue.

u/bigj231 · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

I've used those, and they do work fairly well if you can get them to grip. It's a specialty tool though, and everyone has a screwdriver.

Mine has a 3/8 square hole in it and requires a short extension. I still grab the screwdriver when it's really stuck though, mostly out of habit.

These usually work fairly well too:

u/superwhitemexican · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop it exist lol, but honestly I'd still get in the sketchy 10mil van always losing them.

u/afgray327 · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

Ford actually has a special spark plug removal tool just for the 5.4 engine

Lisle (LIS65600) Broken Spark Plug Remover for Ford Triton 3 Valve Engines

u/hobitopia · 5 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

They literally make a special tool just for these spark plugs.

Lisle (LIS65600) Broken Spark Plug Remover for Ford Triton 3 Valve Engines

u/jbrandt01 · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Not sure I'd attempt a final torque with one, but getting all the way on then busting knuckles for the final chooch is worth it.

u/DTS75 · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

This Lisle Oil Filter Tool works well too. They also have a larger size for bigger filters.

u/MacGeniusGuy · 17 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

This is the 65600 not your 65700, I don't know the difference, but read the first review- you won't be disappointed.

u/sponge_welder · 11 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Some scrap yards will let you set up auto alerts for specific vehicles, you could set one up for crown vic p71s

Here's the Ford part on Amazon

Here's a Chinese copy on ebay for a lot less money

u/BiWinning85 · 3 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Im guessing if you havent heard of the Lisle 5.4l 3v Broken Spark Plug Removal Set, is you havent heard of the hot extraction method.

I recommend always trying this hot extraction method first. Then have the Lisle handy for when they break anyway.

u/xG33Kx · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

Get a bluetooth OBD2 scanner and an app for your phone instead of wasting buck on Verizon service and you'll get more info than the hum will give you.

I've heard good things on this one

Or go to Wallyworld and get this cheap bastard

u/digital_parts_guy · 10 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

I use this one. It works in a similar fashion as yours does. I can't imagine trying to change the oil in my Subaru (or many other vehicles really) without one of these.

u/SierraHotel058 · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

The Lisle filter Tool--Amazon makes changing Subaru filters a piece of cake.

u/Sacredauto · 4 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

They are called Hansen Socket Trays. I think he got his at Harbor Freight but just about anywhere that sells tools should carry them.

u/DocSampson · 5 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Buy this tool before you even start a plug change on a ford 5.4

u/kkemp13 · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Also found this on Amazon... GEARWRENCH 10 Pc. 1/4" & 3/8" Drive 6 Point 10mm Socket Set - 80319

u/collegefurtrader · 3 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

No joke, OP

Car Guy Tools 10mm Socket Six Pack (3/8" Drive, Multi Type: 6pt, 12pt, Deep, Shallow)

u/atraudes · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

I keep these bookmarked for whenever I need to head to a shop. They're about the same price as donuts or beer and will last far longer. If you can't tell I'm a pragmatic gift-giver.

u/briandl2 · 5 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Been using this same tool for 20+ years. It doesn’t work in very tight situations, it does work well when you have enough room to manipulate it into position.

Panduit GS2B Cable Tie Tool, Controlled Tension And Cut-Off, 11.5Oz. Weight

u/MegaSeedsInYourBum · 9 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

Better than burns. Having said that this tool completely negates most trouble with too tight filters It'll even hold the filter right enough that you can screw it on most of the way.

u/cr0sh · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

From what I recall - AutoZone also sells a similar kit in their brand. Neither will likely stand up to pro "abuse" - but might be worth having as a last-minute just-in-case get-r-dun emergency pack...

u/pawnbrojoe · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

A few years back the oil change place stripped the threads on my drain plug. I did something similar to OP and used this. It was slightly more of a pain but not much.

u/mynameisalso · 7 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

You don't need a cordless Sawzall.

>Some Chinese piece, not sure myself

There is your number one problem. Should have gotten a decent OBD2 reader. I spent $25 on the bafx one, and skipped the cheap ELM127 ones, and I am happy I did. This looks more like an issue with the reader itself not being able to interpret the readout correctly(like from a wrong interface spec). Have you checked "hide unsupported sensors" in the options of Torque? Are there any other fault codes besides P0420, and what car is it? Also, with the adapter plugged in, go to the "adapter status" page, and scroll down to see what sensors that the computer reports are supported. see what those "bank1" sensors relate to.

Edit: they usually related to the pre and post cat O2 sensors, now that I think about it. See my other post as well.

u/Class1Owner · 1 pointr/Justrolledintotheshop

I did mine already with a replacement 1 piece. Not 1 of them broke. bought the Lisle 5.4l 3v Extractor tool and never needed it. Ty for the heads up. (lent it out because ill never need it again, and my buddy broke 5 and saved a fuckton doing it himself)

Edit: My issue with mine right now is the cam phasers. Im thinking of using the cam phaser lock out kit. cheap vehicle, cheap fixes.

u/Atimm693 · 5 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

An extractor tool that has sharp tapered threads which grab the broken piece, and is also threaded on the outside to act as a puller.

u/Ironman_gq · 6 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

There is a tool out there that grabs the tabs and can open up the clamp, handy as hell for the spring clamps and no chance of stabbing your hand.OTC 4525 Cable-Type Flexible Hose Clamp Pliers

u/InsertBluescreenHere · 56 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

you should get the tywrap gun or zip tie gun, perfectly tensions the cable that you set and cut sit when tension is reached. Cuts super flush no sharp edges and can operate with one hand.

stupid expensive yes but the one i have saw daily use over a decade and zero issues still. At first i had the harbor freight one and its crap. This is one of those buy it once for life tools and since your cabinet building its a time saver and would make your job so much quicker. Might be able to get your boss to order one and try it out and have them as company tools.

u/manticore116 · 2 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

When I worked at a quicklube we used (these)[] to get off even filters from the factory even (first oil change ones, but they torque them on the assembly line) the worst I ever had, I put a rag under the tool, got a long extension to get some space, and then put a wrench on the back of the breaker bar. It crushed the filter completely but came off
