Q: Canister oil filter

asked by on

I have an oil filter that you put in and take out from under the hood. Canister style. At my last oil change I had a shop do it and well they put it on too tight and no I can not get it to budge. And with this make and model of car it is a hard place to access with a socket and ratchet set or anything else for that matter. Usually I can get it with a socket and ratchet but not this time. What can I do? Can I drive the car with an old oil filter and new oil?

My car has 110200 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
