 On Oct 17th 2013 brought my 2002 land rover to grease monkey at 5450 Front Street, Castle Rock Colordo 80104 for an oil change. They changed my oil and charged me for the oil change. I drove away and the oil filter came loose and all the oil drained from the engine and ceased the motor.

Contacted Grease Monkey and they said it was my fault, I said how is this my fault, I brought the vehicle to you for a service and you negelected to do the correct service and the engine blew up. So I am filling this report to see if any body else has a similar problem and can help.

Response from the Owner

AUTHOR: Grease Monkey #649 - ()

This customer visited our center and requested a full service oil change. We began the oil change and drained the oil. We then noticed that the wrong oil filter had previously been installed on a prior service not performed at our location. The filter was cross-threaded on to the oil filter spindle and could not be removed.

We indicated this to the customer, and advised him to take his vehicle back to the shop or mechanic that previously serviced his vehicle to discuss the issue. We did not charge the customer for a new oil filter and noted on his invoice that the oil filter spindle was stuck prior to service and could not be replaced.

It appears that the customer continued to drive the vehicle with the damaged oil filter spindle, without having it inspected by the previous service provider. This caused the oil to escape through the base plate and filter, thus damaging the engine. We recommend that the customer contact the provider that last serviced the vehicle before it was brought to our location.

If the customer has any questions, we would encourage him to contact us directly at 303-663-4270.
