Question about Cars & Trucks
Was driving and the oil pressure light came on, then engine stopped. Mechanic had a look and said the piston had seized. A while back one of his guys had done an oil change on the car but had left the oil cap off of the top of the engine and it wasn't discovered until the check engine light came on because moisture entered the engine. This was months ago, but I wonder if it is the fault of the mechanic who changed the oil? The engine seized yesterday.

Bad news is it can be fixed but requires complete overhaul I'll bet. Swapping in used engine might be better, or crate engine if price is not important.
