I finally found the oil filter but need to know what direction to turn the wrench. Is it clockwise or counter clockwise? I am afraid if I turn it the wrong way I may break something. I appreciate all the help I can get :bonkers:

What you found is the canister type filer. It fits inside the circle aluminum colored canister thats on the driver side of the top of the engine.

thats what your talking about right?

You turn it counter-clockwise. Lefty loosey righty tighty.

I believe its a 11/16 socket. Mine was on there really tight too but it will come off.

Yes, that is what I am talking about. Thanks so much! I was upset that the owner's manual would not show me the location of the oil filter or give you directions on how to get it off.
