If your talking about the oil filter housing....it'll either have a small bolt in the centre which requires releasing or the housing itself is moulded with a castelation around the perimeter which requires a tool to remove.
Either way you should need no more than moderate effort to remove it.
If the small bolt has "rounded off" then you could try using something like a "metrinch" socket which grips the flats of the bolt head rather than the corners.
Best regards David
