N14 coolant filter shut off

I've got an n14 and can't get the coolant filter shut off to turn. I had a 1/2" breaker bar on it, wd40'd it but still won't turn. I didn't lean on it too hard for fear of breaking it and/or the filter housing.

Anyone got some tricks to try? Does the oil/coolant filter housing have to come off? How much coolant would run out if I didn't shut it off while changing it? TIA.

Cheap to replace if you have a big pan to catch all the A/F!! Use Nevrsieze instead of grease on the orings, and turn it every month, regardless

They can be a "B" to get out, I have a 3/8 inch lag screw that I use, I drill it to i/4 inch, after you have drained the coolant then I have an adapter, that goes on my slide hammer.you want to drill as far as you can, use the new valve as a depth guide, polish the housing, with a small flapper wheel. I have one of those welded onto a rod to get access. I use gear oil, on the "O" rings and as ynot said never seize on the outer section. Never acid was the engine, and it will be fine, turning it once a week when you grease the truck, works for me.
Easier way is to get a shop vacuum and have someone relieve the preasure. You do not hold it on solid but just enough to control the leakage.
Just a thought!
