Question for you mechanics. I've always been taught oil filter are hand tight plus about a half turn to 3/4 turn to compress the gasket. Is there a torque spec on oil filters? The reason I ask is that I had a dealer change the oil in my truck and when I went to change it the next time it was all I had to turn the filter loose, probably 90 - 100 ft lbs on the filter. I also had to get a longer ratchet to break open the drain plug in the oil pan. Just now I got a call on the wife’s car (2017 Toyota Highlander) that went in for the 20,000 mile complimentary service. They broke the oil filter housing off because they overtightened the filter last oil change. Luckily the dealer is paying for the repair, but they have to go aftermarket because no OEM filter mounts available for 2 weeks. If I was the shop manager I’d be all over the crew on the oil change lanes today.
