ENGINE OIL LEAK

2010 Toyota Corolla

Smells problem
2010 Toyota Corolla 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 650 miles

Brand new car 3weeks old. Have been breathing infumes. Throat sore headache. Finally found out what was happening. Oil all over driveway engine steaming I open hood for 1st time Oil cap was never put on oil everywhere over the engine. Had to put oil in tank to get to dealer. Oil engine light never went on. Questions should I ask for a new car even thouhg they cleaned the engine. Will I have problems over the years because of this. Was I breathing in carbon monoxcide? Could the engine have caught on fire? Have to pick the car up Mon.

Yes an engine fire was a definate possibility.

This is totally the fault of dealer and I would demand a new car.

They may have cleaned it, but getting ALL the oil out of every electrical connection is hard to do.
