Lay a wrench or bar across the slots for extra leverage. You can also buy a tool that sits on the cover and allows you to use a ratchet.

Depends what kind you got. Some take a 1/2" wrench in there and others you can lay something across. I have about a 6" c-clamp that fits perfectly putting the "back" (non-clamping) side across it. Don't even have to remove my plastic engine cover

on my 03, i used two screw drivers prying against each other until I took an old piece of 4" exhaust and cut slits in it, bent every other in, and top it off with a filter strap. Use your imagination, pretty much anything can work.
