Mostly been driving our new Equinox since getting it at the the end March 2017..
At end of November 2017 did the LOF bit on the '09 Vibe at the dealer. Had only put about 2,000 miles since prior oil change but that was 12/7/16 so I thought it was time to change. Went for the full synthetic this time. Probably end of January I used the Vibe to go to the grocery store. That id about a 3 mile round trip. When I got back I noticed a lot of gook on my concrete driveway where the Vibe was parked. (Had I observed that i would not have driven it at all.) I put a piece of cardboard under it to see if there would be any more leakage. Did not drive it. Yesterday I started it up to move it back so I could left the hood and get to the card board. Engine as on or no more than 10 seconds. Lots of oil on that cardboard. Dip stick not showing any oil.
I had it towed in to the Chevy dealer (former Pontiac dealer). I was told by the service advisor just now that the drain plug had not been adequately tightened. He asked who did my maintenance - I told him they did the oil change 11/29/17 at 46,683 miles. Current miles are 46,780. Only driven 97 miles since that oil change. They are going to refill the oil.
Well, that doesn't seem adequate. I am going to ask cover to pay my $73.10 towing bill. But I am concerned if there was any damage to my engine due to their negligence. How can you tell if there is any damage?
