This is the reason that I only use my dealer for oil changes. They have a great service dept and if they mess it up they will fix it. They are the only ones that I will let touch my truck. It does cost more, but they can never tell me that someone else messed up my truck.

This is a little off point but not really. I recently had the skin replaced on the left side of my bed. The shop had to remove the bed.

I had taken my aux tank out but left the pump, solenoid and hoses in place.

When I got the truck back, and transferred fuel the first time it seemed to be transferring VERY Slowly. Then I saw diesel fuel on the ground when I pulled into my driveway.

Turned out they nicked (slit) the fuel hose right where it enters the T fitting at the fuel tank vent hose. Im getting so I dont' trust anyone any more.

BTW, for those of you who don't know me, I too am one who does ALL of my own maintenance. I know it is done correctly and, it helps teach you about your truck.

PS. You should document this issue and notify the place that did the work. Take photos of the double seal, or no seal, as has been reported by others with Mobile 1 filters. Any damage that manifests itself later based on low, no oil flow should be the responsibility of the shop that screwed up.

Ya I do all the work on my truck and if I have time on the wifeís terrain. But it goes to the dealer because we get a great deal on syn oil changes through the service manager.

When I drove a company truck years ago, they wanted us to use those fast change places because we had a fleet card. Lord ha mawcy, those guys were clueless as hell. I didnít trust them a bit. I would stand right there and watch every move.

It was mentioned that the GM dealer would be a place where one would have confidence when changing oil or grease job. After my two year "free maintenance" I took my truck to my normal mechanic and was told that my vehicle was never greased. So much for dealer confidence.

They claimed once they pulled the filter that it had a split in the seal. Saying it was defective out of the box. I wish the tech would have inspected the seal before installing it. That is if it was even split. The next oil change is free if I go back. I never seemed to have lost oil pressure so I hope all is fine. However now every little noise I hear makes me nervous.

Makes you wonder how old that filter was if the seal was split. I suspect that would have created a noticeable leak immediately on startup IF they had taken the few seconds to look at it. I always run my finger over the seal ring with some clean oil on it to lube it and to make sure there's no nicks or junk on it. I also only use Mobil 1 filters....

If they admitted the seal was split they as much s stated it was their fault, since they installed that filter. They may be able to go back on the filter manufacturer but that is not your problem it is THEIRS.

Get them to put that info in writing about he split filter, tell them you want recourse against the filter manufacturer when in fact is Them you are looking to go after if you have a mechanical issue resulting from this.

You may in fact be OK if you never lost pressure but you never know. Id be nervous as hell too if I was you.

All this very thing is why in the aviation business we do a ground run and "leak check" any time anything regarding lubrication, hydraulics, etc is disconnected and reconnected before we fly that machine again.

Yes I was taught that any time you do a oil change you start vehicle and hit the floor and watch for oil immediately to ensure no leaks. Then leave running for a min or two as your finishing paperwork or adding mileage sticker. Then check again.
