Chevy Sonic Oil Filter warning during removal and installation
Shop owners are encountering a low oil pressure problem on Chevy Sonic vehicles caused by improper installation of the oil filter. So heed this Chevy Sonic oil filter warning!
Bad oil filter design
The oil filter is a cartridge style filter that has four snap tabs at one end. The tabs are designed to snap into the filter housing. Careless removal of the old filter or careless installation can cause the tabs to break off and fall into the oil filter housing oil drain check valve. The debris causes the oil pressure bleed off to remain open.
In addition, take care when installing the new filter to prevent twisting or smashing the filter pleats.
