my engine popped thanks to a loose oil filter



duh the place i had taken it too forgot to tighten the oil filter and replace the oil plug seal(was leaking there also they claimed) (i would have paid for a new seal if they said something )

they had one job. and failed at it

92k RIP the Unicorn

the oil came out

oil cooked it self due to running low
black at just 2300 miles(I was doing 4k OCI with no loss to the oil and very very minimal carbon in the oil @4k )

VVT system popped


Loud knocking/clacking on start up frown that lasts for 30-40 seconds

damage it's all ready done on the VVT system frown



it's not mobil1 fault it's the person who did the job at the chain shop.

I was really hoping i get it to 150k-200k or more without issue



now my engine is full of dirty carbonized oil and sludge..

i contacted the chain and made a claim they might have to replace the engine with a manufacture refurbished
maybe they should fix it instead top end rebuild?

Sorry to hear mad.

Do you have other images? This one doesn't convey the situation very well.

Didn't notice the oil pooling where you park, this didn't happen suddenly.

If you ran it 2300 miles without checking the oil level, you may have a hard time proving negligence on the quick lube's work. Even though it's not my van, I ALWAYS check the company van's oil level at the first fillup after it's done, and every 1000 miles minimum. Good luck.

i'll have to check my log book but i do check it every so often every 500-1000 miles or so..which is about once a month to month 1/2

there was a small puddle (i'll have to clean it up though).. then on the 160 miles trip most of it was lost.. then...

right now i'm getting a brake inspection... so unless some random person went under the suv to mess with it they were the last people to touch it.....

Those engines are known for consuming oil, AND for doing so suddenly. I'd guess it's possible that failure to check the level frequently enough resulted in low oil level after a couple thousand miles.

I don't think it leaked out. There is zero evidence of a significant leak in the pictures provided. However, pictures can be rather misleading.

Also, M1 should be clean, after 2000 miles, even with a low level. Unless the rings failed to seal.

Another thread you stated 5 qts oil used in 2500 miles so that is 1 quart every 500 miles.

You claimed someone was stealing gas also
All this points to engine problems
Good luck getting chain store to cover as most won't cover once you get any miles on it except oil filter or drain plug falls off and must be an oily mess

You didn't get the dummy light of no oil pressure? You didn't notice any sounds of a train wreck emanating from the top end?

This story sounds odd to me, like I'm missing something....🤔

This particular poster has made many claims, both under this user name and all the previous ones. We all should be aware of that.

I don't check the oil in my 2003 Avalanche. When it tells me the oil level is low I dump 2 quarts in and keep rolling.

That filter doesn’t look too bad. It actually looks like it just wasn’t wiped off after installing it. Here’s a loose and leaking filter that a lady came into our shop with her car knocking. This is the filter that some other shop put on.

The picture rotated for some reason. The filter hangs vertical.
