2.7 owners, help!
I posted this in the "old" forums, then realized that these were up and running, so I'm reposting here:
Ok, I took my car to JiffyLube on Saturday, and left feeling quite good (they vaccuumed my car out and everything!) but this morning I get to work and there's smoke coming out of my engine compartment. So I'm thinking, "WTF???" as I pop the hood.
There in all it's glory is my engine and the entire driver's side is covered in oil, and smoking like a sonofabitch. I notice that theres a hole in the front top, which I'm assuming is where the oil cap goes. Somebody please verify this for me? I'm thinking that they forgot to replace the cap, or didn't bother to tighten it, but I want to make sure that this is the case before I read somebody the riot act for !@#*ing up my car.
I'm thinking I definitely want my engine steam cleaned since there's oil everywhere. I'm not sure how much damage 60 or 70 miles with no oil cap could do. Mostly highway miles, too, and like I said, it's only been two days, though yesterday we had pretty heavy duty rain (though I didn't drive the car)... Any idea what I should request to remedy this situation so I know my car isn't damaged?
