Did your oil pressure concern happen after the oil change?

Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 4 months ago.

Many of these engines require a special oil filter. The filter in these motors are designed in a way that there is a valve release that allows oil pressure to build through the filter. If the wrong filter is used or if it is installed improperly, it can result in no oil pressure being allowed to develop. I suggest returning to the place that changed your oil and inquiring about this. It is easy to improperly install the filter, especially for an inexperienced oil tech.
