I just called the place that did the oil change. Their position seems to be (1) that if low oil caused the car to die, then the engine would have seized and I could not have restarted it, (2) that if low oil had caused the car to throw a rod, I could not have restarted it. Basically, that their failing to replace the oil cap could not and did not cause the problem.
Could the failure to replace the oil cap and the consequent low oil have caused the clanking, the smoke and the car to die? What else could have caused it?
have the same problem?
