My daughter is 28. She bought a new rav 4 a few months ago.
her second oil change at the dealer did not go well.
the oil filter was not tightened proper;y. Yep you guessed
it she did not make it home.
the oil dip stick was without any oil and a crispy critter. The engine made a really bad noise.
now here is what the manager at the dealer ship said.
upon inspectiion on the dealers lift, they acknowleged that the filter was at fault. Now here comes the question to his/managers excuse. We filtered the remaining oil thru a paint filter. No pieces were found. We put new oil in it and it is fine. Reason given, the car has a shut off switch built in and their was 1 and a half quarets of oil in the crank. The car is fine and the motor is o k.
is their in fact a shut off switch and will their in fact be oil even though the stick is dry?
every one I talk to says the engine is gone and a new car is in order.
gary thanks for the reply
