Obviously it was shut down asap, oil was drained and a new fill was done. That, and alot of degreaser and cleaning in the engine bay. I was you mean that single torx bolt that holds the assembly to the oil filter housing? (ie not the two smaller thermostat cover screws but the larger bolt that you have to take off in order to be able to pull the thermo cover off?)
