I have an appointment on Wednesday to take the car in for diagnostics. I changed the oil, which was very thick (There were only 1800 miles on it too) and the oil filter was heavier than usual. The dealership that serviced my timing belt has offered to fully cover the repair costs, towing costs, etc., so long as it is determined that the problem is their fault. I have a hunch that no matter what the problem is found to be, it is going to be hard to pinpoint it to something that the shop caused when performing the last service.
I started up the engine after replacing the oil, and I am hearing clicking noises. Time for a tow
On a side note, for those of you using Mobil1, if you go to their website (http://www.mobil1.com
) and set up an account, you will get a $10 mail in rebate for your next purchase of 5 quarts of synthetic. They are giving this away due to shortages they experienced from Hurricane Ike. At least this made me a little happy. The fine print says that the rebate is good for up to 2 times per household as well. Enjoy.
