Bad experience after an oil change
The next day, as I am driving down the freeway, I see a lot of smoke coming out for under the hood. I pulled over, opened the hood and see the oil filler cap missing. Obviously, the mechanic who did the oil change, screwed up. In addition to the smoke, the entire engine area under the hood is spattered with oil, and all messed up. Luckily, the engine did not run out of oil, and I was able to make my way to a spare parts store to refill the oil, and buy a new cap.
My questions are:
Do I need to do check for any damage -can the oil cause any long term to the wires, pipes, hoses, firewall?
How can I best screw the "m*&^%#$&#*&r" who did this to me? I was extremely lucky to get away without any major damage to the engine. However, mechanics who cannot screw a oil filler cap right, need to be kept away from all cars, permanently.
BTW, the establishment in question a national tire dealership associated with all those Ford Explorer rollovers.
