you have to "call em like you see em" I do not blame you for getting the 1st Class repair. And it sounds like your repair shop is a good repair shop.

The spigot on the new filter holder is mounted exactly like the original one was, It may work it's way loose, you will loose oil pressure, and the engine will stop.

The actual repair is what they originally recommended. They could have flushed out the area carefully, then used locktite that would require a wrench to remove the spigot in the future.

The bottom line is, if you feel good about the repair, and the people who did it, you are good.

On top of that, you have the filter gasket providing resistance to turning. You usually need a filter wrench to loosen during oil change.

Again, in my opinion, the repair shop tried scare tactics to make it a bigger job.

Too late now, but just be cautious with them in the future.

Of course without the old parts who's to say they didn't perform the repair as suggested. Someone would have been digging through a scrap pile looking for the old parts before I'd write a check or start negotiating on the labor cost.

Didn't get kissed...lol

Hey, there is a silver lining in every cloud. Before the repair, the oil pressure gauge would come up to show pressure when I started my MH. Then it would go back to zero for a few seconds then come up again. Sometimes this would continue as I was driving the first few blocks. It would go up then down to zero and back up. Since the repair, this seems to be fixed. So it is like peeing yourself in a dark suit, you get a warm feeling and nobody really notices...lol

I am glad it is fixed properly and I have peace of mind. I don't like to get my hands too dirty. Now I drive it like it is stolen.

Happy days.....and remember, it's just money....

I agree, really strange that the old part was in thrown away. Repair shops around here offer up the old part when you pick up the repaired vehicle.
