Wife had oil change on car. Place this was done didn’t put oil back in. Drove away and knocking/panging started and light came on…turned around to place where oil change was done. They put oil in. Knocking/panging went away. Nevertheless po’ed and talked to store manager and he said needed to have compression test before anything else could be done. I required oil pressure and oil sample test…Despite this everyone I talked to (some experienced mechanics) said these tests won’t show some damage…pretty much have to pull engine apart to rule out any damage…some stated if knocking/panging occurred, damage had been done.
Had tests done and tests came back OK…I mentioned my wife and I had been hearing weird sounds that weren’t made before. Tech said pretty much have to tear engine apart to be assured damage isn’t done. So what can we do now? Just feel that there was damage and even if the engine doesn’t blow in near future, it has severely decreased life of engine.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!!
