Took my car in for the 15K dealer maintence. I brought my own Mobil 1 oil and asked the dealer tech to use a TRD Oil Filter
. Everything seemed to go well.
When driving the car that night something didnt feel quite right, when I let off the gas after accelerating the engine seemed to slow the car down quicker than normal.
Next morning I notice a small amount of oil under my car. Closer inspection reveals that the stupid fK-ing dealership put a GT Oil Filter
on my GTS, and it was leaking around the seal; I then got a ride to the parts store, got the right filter and oil and changed it myself.
The receipt from the dealership even documented the part number for a GT TRD Oil Filter
. The dealership said the best they could do was comp me for the price of the oil and filter I had to replace. I want them to comp for the entire price of the 15K service.
What kind of damage could the wrong Oil Filter
done to my engine if I had not caught it?
