started the thread with:
It's happened three times in a row so I know it wasn't just a fluke. I
recently switched from using M1 oil filters to AC Delco oil filters in
my truck. After every oil change, for the first 5 or so cold starts, I
get horrendous lifter noise. The lifters won't shut up until I shut the
truck off, then restart. On restart it's nice and quiet. Oil pressure in
either instance is 60 psi. After the first 5 or so cold starts with all
the bloody racket, all is back to normal until the next oil change.
This never happened with M1 filters which I've been using for the past 5
years or so on this truck.
