Well now I donít have to use a 3/8s anymore since I had to go buy a 27mm socket, haha.

it's very easy to believe that dealership techs either use an impact wrench or, since they have the car up in the air, put a breaker bar on it and give the oil filter a healthy yank. if it's on too tight the average customer doesn't know any better since it's coming back to them eventually anyways. if it's on too loose then it's oil on the ground and they're in trouble.
