Re: FYI: Found cause of problem

For your info, I found the source of the low oil pressure. I had changed from 10W30 to 10W40, and saw absolutely no difference in pressure. I then changed to a new oil filter. I didn't think changing to a new filter would make a difference since the current filter was only 3 weeks old.

The new filter solved the problem. Apparently, the 3-week old filter must have been defective, maybe a overly strong check valve.. Nice to have a $8 fix to the problem........
BETTER SAVE THAT OLD FILTER AND RECEIPT for the OIL and FILTER and record the DATE and MILEAGE you installed it.

There's a chance that you may have lower end damage and that if the CORRECT filter was installed, the manufacturer may very well be liable for damage ! ! !
