Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty
I was driving my 03 liberty on the highway no problems no smoke no weird noises - the oil light comes on and then a few seconds later the car stopped. I was lucky to stear it off the road. It would not turn over. Had it towed to garage. They told me the oil was low and it's the engine. I just had the oil changed 2 weeks ago, inspection etc....I never miss an oil change and take good care of my jeep! I have about 88,000 miles.....it's been great until today! Just not sure if I can trust the garage. Need a second opinion!
Go to the shop, remove the oil dipstick and smell the oil, ( well maybe first you should get a base line by smelling normal, new oil) if you burned up your oil, it will smell really bad like burnt....well burnt oil like when a car is blowing blue smoke. If it smells really bad like burnt, they are probably telling you the truth and you need to find out where the oil leaked out...if it seems like the oil drained out the oil pan or the filter, the people who changed your oil could be held liable for not tightening down those parts properly. Since you werent burning oil, my guess is that you were leaking it. If the motor will not turn over but you can hear the starter engage, you definatley seezed up you engine. But i really really hope that the mechanics are full of **** and that you do not need to replace your engine. No matter what you do, keep any parts removed from your vehicle to have inspected by another mechanic for review. For instance, if you have brake pads replace at the discression of the mechanic, ask for the old brake pads back and take to antoher shop to see if they really needed to be replaced or not.
