2.8 S-10 Blazer oil filter

I bought a Chevy S-10 blazer with a shelled 2.8. I was looking it over yesterday to see how big of a pain it was going to be to pull the engine. As I was looking it over I began to wonder how in the heck anybody could reach the oil filter to change it. That could be the reason the engine failed, the filter that is on it appears to have some age on it. Looks like it needs a remote oil filter.

Anyhow, the wife is getting eager to drive it.

I have a Sonoma with the 2.8 and had an 82 S10 with a 2.8. They are actually not that difficult to get to. You do need to come from underneath, behind the drivers wheel. You wil find putting it up on a jack stand will allow you to get up there and loosen it. I have used the cap type wrench that fits over the filter end with a universal and 2 feet of extension and loosened it. I have also used strap wrenches and the universal type that grips the filter with 2 finger like pieces and tightens when you turn it loose.

You need to get busy and make momma happy.
