How big of an extension did you use? My 2.2 socket fit perfectly with a 3" extension.RNOX said:I bought the Leslie (I believe that is the name of the company) shallow socket that is made specifically for the Eco cap. On my Saturns with the 2.2 you can use a socket but when I tested on my Nox it wouldn't fit. I have not seen a 1 1/4 socket in any store that is shallow enough.
The sockets I have seen and I have (I used on my old 2.s VUE) are too deep and hit the to the filter cap the filter cap. The socket does not go fully over the hex part of the cap and would strip it. The LEslie socket id very shallow and fits perfectly over the hex on the cap. I hace a 2.2 on my Saturn LS1 and used the Leslie socket yesterday and it was much easier. You must have found a shallow socket somewherebballr4567 said:How big of an extension did you use? My 2.2 socket fit perfectly with a 3" extension.
