1998 Chevrolet S10 4.3L

169,429 mi.

Out: Castrol conventional, weight unknown, Protech filter

In: Mobil 1 HM 10W30, Purolator L24011

After taking the S10 in for a past-due rotate and balance I noticed an oil change sticker on the upper corner of the windshield. Crawled under the truck and sure enough there was a white Protech oil filter staring me in the face. I was [censored]!!!
So, on the way home I stopped in at Wally world and got a Puro filter and a jug of the CORRECT oil I've been using for years. Mobil 1 HM 10W30. As soon as I got home I got out the ramps and undid what this shop had done!!!
This really sucks because I do my oil changes every 5,000 mi. and at 170,000 I'm doing a tune-up and having intake gaskets replaced. So I'll probably be doing another oil change in less than a month!!!

Did they charge you for the oil change? A Honda dealership did that when we brought in my girlfriend's Civic for a timing belt service without asking us and we complained and had them comp us since the oil was literally just changed a week or so beforehand.

Not charged, and no mention at all. I found it by "accident" when I saw that sticker on the windshield. Very reputable shop too, I am perplexed at why they would do that. I haven't mentioned it to them yet and don't know if I will. But I talk to them at least twice a week as they buy parts from us.

I always fear that happening. Never had it happen though. I imagine if it did I would walk in there pretty ticked demanding to see someone to rip into.

It's not the oil that bothers me - its the filter. They screw them on so tight it's almost impossible to get off. Had to crush one with a filter wrench once before I got it off. Do they impact wrench those things on?!
