Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Hi, I made the mistake of going to Mr. Lube obviously for an oil change. Prior to this my car was running perfectly. Within 50 kms of leaving Mr. Lube, my engine starts clunking and clanking really loudly. I barely had time to pull over before my engine felt like it was going to jump out from under the hood of my car. Even my manual transmission gear shifter was shaking.
Under the hood....removed the oil cap...smoke started coming out.
And yes, the oil level was up full.
Otherwise, everything appeared normal under the hood.
Car is clearly not driveable. Had to tow it.
Mr. Lube thinks this is purely a coincidence in timing that something went wrong in my engine.

Appearently Mr Lube is either going to end up fixing your car. I dont know what could have happend other than maybe they put the wrong type of oil back in it. I would definately get ahold of some of the higher ups at Mr Lube and "Ensure" they put your car back the way it was when it arrived there. There is no purely coincidence about it. They were the last ones to touch it. They will be the first ones to fix it. Make sure you are very firm with them, and keep track of names/dates/events as this important if you need to consult an attorney because of their negligence. Hope this gives you some direction, Thanks for using FixYa!
