Tools for New Automotive Technicians (VIM Tools Oil Filter Adapters)


hi I’m Brian I said from how to automotive and today I wanted to talk to you about being the new guy in shop or the starting your automotive career out and what type of tools you’re going to start buying and today I wanted to feature the VI M oil filter adapters that you’re going to be using on a day to day basis and most likely you’re going to start out on the loop rack and you’re gonna be doing lots of oil changes to start out with and there’s lots of new tools coming out for all these new vehicles and I wanted to show you these feature these and show you the difference between some of the cheaper brands versus these quality brands and why you would want to pick these up so stay tuned for them so nowadays a lot of vehicles are going to the canister style oil filters and they require special sockets and tools to get the oil filter filters off especially on European and Asian vehicles here I am using one of the VI M sockets to remove in a BMW oil filter now these canister style filters have been around for quite a while now but there’s more and more manufacturers coming out with them and coming out with different styles and shapes of them so I teamed up with VI M tools because they make one of the best master kits and one of the most quality tool sets you’ll find on the market for removing all these different assortments of oil filters so the reason why I’m bringing these to you is this is where you’re gonna start out as on the loo track you’re gonna be doing a lot of oil changes and having the right tools for the right job is gonna help you be more efficient which is gonna be a benefit for you guys before your boss is gonna see that that you’re investing in quality tools and that you’re efficient and it’s gonna help you progress faster so in this first couple of Clips here I’ve been featuring the European master set this set has all the popular models you’re going to be working run across and working with so you’re gonna you’re gonna do your Volkswagen your Audi your Volvo your mercedes your BMW your Mini Cooper Land Rover it’s gonna be the most common vehicles that you’re gonna run across on a day to day basis that’s why I recommend this particular set I will link this up in the description the video so this next set is designed to work with all your Asian vehicles that have the canister filters so in each one of the cases is a diagram of what oil filter adapters and will fit which vehicles so you can look up the part numbers on the oil filter and adaptor here and figure out which car you’re working on so right here I’m using a Toyota I looked up the adapter and I found the proper adapter in the case so you can take the guesswork out if you really anything like me you’ll just probably just grab one and throw it on there and see if it fits but so these are extremely thick and durable which is great because some of these toyota vehicles the oil filter housing will literally in here itself or stick on the housing and it can take a ton of leverage to get them off right here these are designed to work with the 1/2 inch drive ratchet or you can put a socket over the end of the oil filter adapter so the quality of the VI MSR second-to-none if you look at these other brand here and look how thin and cheap they are and also some of the other brands they don’t come in kit you have to buy them all a cart so it’s way more expensive to buy them one at a time as you run across them so these thin stamp metal type like this one right here I’m showing you are very prone to flexing and also the end of it will actually strip out if you look right here it’s almost rounded out and it’s pretty much useless after a while so you can see here if you invest in cheap tools you’re gonna constantly rebuy them which will not benefit you in any way another feature I like about them is when you have to clean them they have a hole on the bottom so having the hole on the bottom makes it much easier to clean some of the other brands do not have a hole in them and it just collects the oil in the bottom and it makes it very difficult to clean so this VI M when here all it does take it requires to clean it out as maybe use some parts cleaner or brake clean and you can spray it in here as you spray it will drain out the bottom of it that’s just one more way this will make it more efficient for you to have to own so when as you spray those and clean them out it’s much easier than wiping and trying to pour out the oil links for both the Asian and the European kits will be in the description right now somehow I like to thank you guys for watching my videos encourage you to subscribe invite you to head over to the how to automotive comm website for more valuable videos like this thank you again for watching and be sure to subscribe you
