its metal, not plastic like the other one. i even took off that funny little clip that goes around it. monkeyed with it for about an hour, no luck, still tight.

can anyone help me out? i have an occasional "crank, no start" condition, and i really want to get this new filter on so i can see if the problem is resolved. plus, its the factory filter with 85,000 miles.
