View Full Version : 2001 oil filter adapter

November 16th, 2017, 14:46
Just trying to find out what bolt my 01 has. I've been reading and it seems that different Jeeps have different bolts. 97-01 all have either torx or Allen. I am going to be changing O-rings next oil change. I have the T60 from when I did my WJ.

Would like to hear from owners of '01's who have changed their's and what bolt did you have. Unless anyone knows a definite if certain years used one and not the other or if they were random or what.

Both my 2001s had the torx

My 01 uses a T60 torx head. The clearance is tight, I took a T60-3/8" socket and punched the bit out.
A 12mm box end wrench fits the bit, which is used, along with a cheater, to access and loosen the bolt.
It was very tight, requiring using a cheater, slipped over the wrench.
