I just hit 5000 miles myself and I'm 40%. You're not giving me much to look forward to. I have a plier-type wrench that I used on my Accord when I removed the filter. Do you think that'll do the trick or will I need something else when the time comes?Just did my first oil change at 5000 miles and Main. Minder at 30%. Getting to filter was the worst part and what a mess. I'm ordering the deflector and hope it helps on the next change. I was surprised that I couldn't use a socket wrench with the filter socket (no space). Thankfully I was able to use open end wrench with it. I usually hand tighten my filters and there's no way your going to get a torque wrench in there.
