I have had my car in the shop for the past few weeks because last time that i picked it up from the bmw dealership, it just would stay running. The dealership says that who ever changed my oil and the oil filter had used a aftermarket filter. The aftermarket filter has fallen apart after a while and that all of the filter parts have ended up in my engine causing it to shut the car off. Is that possible? or am i getting a run around by the dealership? Or is it possible that the mechanic screwed up my car?
Lol, any update on this?...because I just got an oil filter that wasnt from the dealer....
