I initially tried to google the correct wrench and ended up here. I searched the 11 Gen DIY thread and didn't see anything.

Is there a definitive good oil filter wrench for these cars?

Is the Matco TOY640 correct? Something else better?

Yeah, Matco's TOY640, TOY110A, and TOY112A are 64.5mm 14 flutes... They all work, but TOY11OA is more specific to your Corolla.

EWK's EB0014 I got covers both of TOY110A and TOY112A applications.

Matco TOY640 is correct yes, for Corolla 2009-2015 with 2ZR-FE 1.8, and many other Toyota and Lexus applications... Here's a really good one by EWK which I ordered for friend's 2014. Scroll down for photos and specs:

That EWK one looks good because it has slots for the tabs. I actually found a similar one by a different manufacturer pn# 71110.

It confused the hell out of me because there are so many different part numbers and some people were saying they had bad experiences with certain brands (mainly plastic and stamped steel auto store versions).

The ABN 71110 is fine too... You just need to avoid the weak tin or plastic ones, or cheap 65mm tools made in China, instead of the required 64.5mm.

That dvautoparts site says not to use a torque wrench to remove the filter. Is there a reason for that? I'm not seeing the problem here.

It is generally recommended to not use a torque wrench to loosen anything... The oil filter cup can be quite hard to unscrew the first time. The high rate of torque applied, and the shock sustained when breaking the bond can throw your delicate torque wrench's calibration off.

The 25412. They just happened to have it in stock so i grabbed one without thinking to much of it, so with that being said the other may work as well but im not sure. only thing to complain about the 25412 is the side where they wrench goes on is tapered so it takes some finagling sometimes to get it to where you feel like its not slipping. little grinding down or filing would take care of that though.

I found a #71110 at Tooltopia for $15 so I ordered it. Hopefully the factory torqued mine to spec, so it will come off easy at the 5K mile oil change.

Do any of you have a cheap source for OEM oil filters? Or is the dealer reasonable?

Dealer prices seem reasonable considering auto zone, advanced auto, etc... will charge about the same for a "premium" oil filter
