I went to the local Chevrolet Dealer to have my Oil Changed. I supplied the Oil (Royal Purple) and Filter. The reason I did this was because I had a **** of a time trying to get the Factory Oil Filter off. I never did, so I elected to go back to the dealer and ask the mechanic how they did it. Well, come to find out, there is a CAM ACTION oil filter tool that mounts to a 3/8" drive that will slip right over the filter and provide all types of leverage to remove the filter. I checked around and found it at Autozone. You'll find it over by the Oil Filters. The Part Number is: #297190 25128, OEM Import Car Oil Filter Wrench. It costs $5.99. Amazon.com also has it. It has made my life a whole lot easier trying to get the Traverse's Oil Filter off. I hope this information helps those who change their own oil. :cheers:

Any chance one of you kind Traverse owners would consider buying one for me (your Canadian cousin :angel:) and shipping it north? I of course could reimburse you with a PayPal exchange :thumb: .

I will do that for you. I am going on vacation thought for the next week. If you want to wait I will check AZ next week because I need to buy one as well. There is 8% sales tax here in NY too. The online price is 5.99 us, so about 6.46 us with the tax. I don't know what shipping will be. I will send you a PM with my email.

I did find a similar one if not the same on Ebay. That might be better for you, there might be an Ebay one in Canada.

Does K&N make an oil filter for the Traverse yet? I know they have a 1" hex on the end so you can use a regular wrench on it. Works great on my Trans Am.

Isnt that a great idea.

It should be standard on every oil filter.
