Default Im changing my oil on a 92 SSE I need Help.

When im on my back looking up at the oil filter should I turn the wrench left or right. I can't tell because its not losening up either way. I don't want to break it so if anyone has any suggestions please tell me.

I have a friend who has ways to remove that dang oil filter that won't come off. It involves a screwdriver(slotted or philips, don't matter) a hammer and lots of shop rags to clean up the mess. He isn't all that smart.

hell don't worry about breaking it, if it won't come off then definitely punch a screwdriver through it and turn. on the bonnevilles the oil filter is in an easy spot.
