Default Question about stripping threads with an oil filter

Well I'm pretty surprised but I do think I stripped the threads out with my oil filter.

I hand tightened then went another 1/8th of a turn with the wrench. I guess it's possible someone before me did it but I doubt it because it felt fine on my first oil change.

forgive my ignorance here but I'm looking into having a mechanic friend of mine do the work for me to save money. So my somewhat ignorant question is, how big of a job is this?

really? I thought it was a separate piece? Is that not the case, does it go to the block?

2015 accord.

looks like the filter gave before the housing, thank God.

I'm really surprised, I barely turned it. Plus I didn't do it any differently than I have been for years. The only difference was that I used a mobile oil filter.

thanks for responses.

I would never use a filter wrench to tighten the filter on, only to aid in removal. Tighten only by hand and call it good

You still haven't answered the question about which engine.
