Default Re: 2003 ION an oil change, now my engine is shot

when the 2.2 ecotec first came out in the ion there were 2 different oil filter designs based on the design of the screw on oil filter cap, you could not use the old design in a newer style or so, check service bulletins. I also picked up a filter at the daler recently and the pointed down side was shorter than the one I removed, took it back and they gave me the correct one, so it is possible it is a filter problem, one design does not keep oil pressure up I believe. Take it to a dealer so they can check oil filter length/design that independent used versus factory filter.
