    3) Whether they double gasketed it or worse didn't install a filter or the plug, there is no way they can know "no damage done" unless they tore the engine down. Life expectancy would certainly be a question.

    They are telling you what you want to hear. Personally I would have insisted on being present when they inspected it, as a new engine is thousands of dollars.
    double gasket happens more than anyone thinks, the old gasket will stick to the block if the first filter did not get its gasket lubricated properly. ive seen some blow out instantly and some make it around the block before blowing out. most customer never know about it happening since the car is still on the lift at the time, it will get the filte swapped back out for a new one, oil mess cleaned and off the car goes


    once had a customers car loose there oil (tech fault) and drove there car 6 miles here, we filled it up, cleaned the mess, and bought them a power train warranty for 4 years. they kept the car for 3 years and did the oil changes here during those 3 years and never had a problem. they did put about 75k miles on the car.

    First oil change I did on my new to me '01 Supra had the old gasket stick. The engine was replaced by the previous owner and only had 20 hours on it. This was about 18 months ago. Glad I always check, first one a ever caught personally.

    FYI to everyone-- you should always fill the oil filter and lubricate the gasket (and now add to that-- check to make sure the old gasket came off with the old filter).

    Priming oil filter is not that critical on gas engines IMO opinion since they are so small and fill up rather quickly anyways. But it doesn't hurt to do it ad probably is better than not doing it

    Well, you don't get any oil till the filter gets it first so I think it's worth the 30 sec. it takes. Your call on your boat.

    I'd have to change my oil in the truck every time I got back it's so far away.
