To remove the filter base I will at times place it in a vise....... then rotate the filter off it. I have had the filter cartridge body rotate without the filter loosening from the base also.. sometimes one must get a little brutal when removing the old filter...... To ensure the filter removal is easier next time use oil on the base gasket and tighten hand tight to seal.
Fuel leaks may be seen but air leaks are not usually......
I do use a filter wrench on the filter to header sealing......but again use only enough torque to seal and oil the gasket.
