Some parts of cars need to tightened really well, others don’t need that much. Some people seem to confuse the two.
I had trouble getting this oil filter off because it was tightened way too much by whoever did the last oil change. At one point my wrench punctured the filter and it started pouring oil all over my tools as I tried to get it loose. The filter even has the instructions printed on it that say “hand tighten.” I have had ones that got even more mangled in the process of removal, so I was lucky with this one.
