    Angry Ceased engine

    Three weeks ago I had my oil changed at CT here in my home town.Last week I was driving along and my car just stalled.I tried boosting it to no avail.I had it towed to the nearest service station(Petro Canada) to determine what was wrong.To my shock and horror the mechanic told me my engine block is ceased to the point he has never seen before due to lack of lubrication.When asked if he has ever heard of a garage forgeting to actually put oil in the car his response."It happens alot more than you would think".
    My car is a 99 tercel with 130k kilometres on it.Never leaked oil,never burned oil,and this CT has done all the sevice on this vehicle.Now I have no car!When asked about this at the store the mgr literrally shrugged his shoulders and asked,and I quote.."What do you want US to do about it?"
    My question to the forum is has this happened to anyone else on the forum and what was the eventual outcome?Oh and one other thing the check engine light never came on nor did the oil light.Also there was no pinging smoking or noise of any kind before this happened.

    You definitely have a case against that store. Get a written explanation from the petro-can station (lack of oil), call CT customer relations and they will follow up with the store. I'm thinking they will be getting you a new engine.

    Anything can happen, that's why they have insurance. No one is perfect, but when they make a mistake, they need to pay for the repairs.

    Re: Ceased engine

    Where's your proof that Canadian Tire is responsible for wrecking your 10 year old car? You have no case. Don't pass go. Don't collect your $200. His word against yours. You're one of those union cry babies that whine and blame someone else for your stupidity and lack of car maintenance. Go ahead and take it to court. You'll be paying for CT's court costs and time when you lose.

    Whatever you whiney lil bitch. Go ahead and sue. Go take it to CBC like that old man did. Nothing will ever happen because you're lying. If the car didn't have oil it would've never made it out of the garage period. You can't prove that we did anything wrong.

    Re: Ceased engine

    I know more than you do about cars. Mines in the parking lot waiting for me after work. Where's yours LOL? Do you have to take the bus now LOL. So you think Canadian Tire is at fault? What are you going to do about it? Go call head office, we really shake in our boots. There's nothing, nada, ziltch that you can do or prove that we damaged your car

    Maybe you should've had a 50 point inspection with the oil change LOL.
