Oil Filter Fell Off
Last week I had my 96 se in for an oil change at the local "speedy change" we'll call them. Well they put on the wrong oil filter and 70 miles later it blew off while driving. I stopped as soon as I smelled oil and realized I had no oil pressure. I also did not hear any knocking (but who knows, I about crapped my pants when it happened I might not have heard a train running over me). I had it towed to a service station, cleaned up and refilled/lubed. It knocked on startup, but holds oil pressure now and seems to drive ok. I was reimbursed for all my expenses thus far. However, do you think I am of line to expect a new engine because of this? How do I know that 1000 miles down the road I won't throw a rod or scorch something up? Just looking for some opinions.
