Oil change gone bad

Got my oil changed today at Mobil one. Saw a few drips earlier in the day. But got in the the truck tonight and the dic says add oil. Checked the level and there’s none on the dip stick. Crawled underneath and the underside is coated with oil. Added four quarts and it’s halfway up the dipstick. Fired it up and it coming out of the filter.

Sounds like a double gasket. Some people don’t check to make sure that the gasket on the old filter comes off with the filter. It gets stuck to the filter housing. When they put the new on they break loose the old gasket and you are leaking. This happens a lot at those fast oil change places. Pull the filter and replace it. Unless they stripped the filter housing, this is my bet. I wouldn’t reuse the filter. Probably messed up the new gasket. Good luck and keep us posted.

^this. Pull the filter and check for a double gasket on it. Or they used a filter wrench and tightened it too much and damaged the threads.

This is why I don’t let anyone change my oil. I have had friends who worked at quick lube places that have told me horror stories like this. Or worse. Like starting it up with no oil and not noticing till there’s a knocking coming from engine. Then just adding the oil and never saying a word to anyone and sending it out to the customer.

A few weeks ago I had my tires rotated at the tire shop down the way. Asked them to lube grease points since I hadn’t had a chance since buying this truck. I asked him how many there were after. He said one on each side. I thought that sounded strange but haven’t had a vehicle this new or a duramax diesel. So I didnt wanna tell him he was wrong with out checking. Checked and found out there was a total of 9! Was beyond pissed.

I ended up calling the shop foreman for something else since I work at a RV repair shop and we use each other of service at times. I mentioned this situation and before I could finish he said it should be 9 or 11 depending on the year. Then said only he and one other guy would have known off hand. I told him that I was going to be requesting him to do the work on my truck when I come by for now on. He was glad to do so and appreciated that we didn’t have this discussion in front of the entire crew or in front of customers.

My point is either you make sure you can trust who you have working on your truck or you do it your self. Changing the oil in these trucks can usually be done with out a jack most of the time.

This is one of the reasons that I take my truck to one of the local GMC dealers for oil changes. I really like that the oil change rack is right outside of the customer lounge with several large picture windows that look into the oil change/garage area.

Obviously, can't seem them change the filter but can see that the oil is changed and that Mobil 1 is put back into the engine.

Like others have said, do your own basic maintenance yourself, you will save a LOT of money, know what products are used and know that things are done right...or at least who to blame if they aren't done right!!! I installed a Fumoto valve on my pan when I first got it, makes changing oil a lot easier. Been doing mine for over 10 years now and so far it's always been done right...

Iíd be going back to that shop and making them fix their screw up. Make a scene, cost them some business. They could have cost you an engine.

Iím also in the DIY club, because of crap like this. With Google, YouTube, and a decent set of tools thereís a hell of lot you can do yourself. I donít do my own work so much to save money as I do to know that itís been done right.

I currently don’t have a decent place to do my own work. I used this oil change place for over 10 years without a problem but I’ll be having them fix it and replace the cost of the oil I’ve had to purchase. If it was an oil change before a road trip it would have probably been the end of this engine

I like turning wrenches. Try to do everything thing I can. But like I said I don’t a space to do it right now and don’t like using people’s places or things.
