Anyone who works on later model Chevy vehicles is already aware of the engine oil filter replacement procedure that involves changing the filter element instead of a self-contained filter housing unit. Some customers may comment on the low oil pressure light coming on or flashing on and off at idle. This may be caused by oil pressure being bled off due to debris in the oil drain check valve and/or a distorted/smashed filter element.
