Oil Filter Issues

Oil and filter change done at Burt Bros in Salt Lake, Filter not clipped into oil filter housing cap. Caused low oil pressure and failure of the oil pump. Not covered under warranty, out $703.16. Is this even a possible outcome?

Burt Bros did the work? If they did it wrong, they are liable. It's not a warranty issue, it is a guarantee issue.

Thanks everyone for your input. I need some clarification. Proper filter was chosen and used, however my question is, if the filter was not clipped into the oil filter housing cap, would that cause low oil pressure and because of that, the oil pump to fail?

I work in the insurance industry and my prior company used to insure a lot of auto service risks. Tire shops, quick lube places, garages that serviced corporate fleets, etc. Mistakes happen all the time, but that is why they have insurance. Go talk to the shop, let them know what happened, and they should take care of you.

Their negligence caused your property to become damaged. Legally, they are obligated to fix your property. Most businesses choose to purchase insurance to cover them in situations like this.

hope someone knows more than i do will answer, but i don't think so. it seems to me you would get 100% of the filtering capacity of the filter but how would that starve the oil pump? don't think there is enough room for the filter to move enough to stop oil flow. how did you mange to not seize the engine?
