Cummins Oil Filter Plug

Price $ 10.77

  • Prevents spillage of hot oil from the oil filter cap on Dodge RAM 6.7L Cummins Diesel Heavy-Duty truck, due to the placement of the oil filter
  • U-handle makes removal and installation easier when reaching from locations where your vision is obscured
  • Ridged side allows for removal of tool from cap with locking pliers
  • When changing the oil, reach above the oil filter and screw the plug into the oil filter for a secure seal, and then remove the oil filter from the tight space without spilling any hot oil
  • Tool also allows the technician to pre-lube the oil filter before installation instead of running your finger with oil around the rubber seal before re-applying

Proper procedure to ensure the threads wonG«÷t cross thread:

  • When reaching up into the engine bay, it is near impossible to have a view of the threads on both the oil filter and plug tool.
  • We recommend turning counter clockwise until you feel the thread entry point line up.
  • This is the moment when you feel a small drop in the counter clockwise turn.
  • Once aligned, begin to turn clockwise at a slow rate to insure proper engagement with the threads.
    • **Note that this is common practice among many technicians, when threads are not visible.
