I watched that the yesterday but didn't catch the direction the first time as his hand is blocking. Watching again I can see his thumb turn the valve's direction. Looks like I will need to make 2 wrenches. One short to start the turn (between the filters) and another to complete the turn to shut it off.
Maybe I will get lucky and just starting the motion will free up the valve so's it will turn by hand.
I read at least three posts describing how easily it is to break the valve by using force on the "handle" side. The recommendation was to turn the valve on the inside between the filters. When the oil filter is off there is room to access that side.
Waiting on the Air Filter and AC belt to arrive before I change the Coolant Filter; but I guess the gives me time to test out freeing my stuck valve.
Thanks again for posting the video. Made me take a second look!
