Hi scotty, and community...I went for a drive this morning, but engine light suddenly came on, I made a quick u turn to head for my mechanic...upon getting there and telling him about the engine light on, he's preoccupied with the fact I'm wayyy overdue on my oil change(3000 miles😔🤐) I know I know, but I'm a busy student...., anyhoo, after spending about 2 1/2 hours waiting for an ordered oil filter, mind u they let my good sit open for awhile before putting in the filter , temp was probably 36° or so....idk but it was cold enough I'm in ny, so after finishing he says he'll monitor the car, if the light comes back on we'll go from there, let just see if the oil change is the reason....fastfwd to later, I drive to class bout 30mins from where I live...soon as I park the car I hear a pop noise come from the engine...then I see it start smoking..I get out pop the hood, I can feel a slight grease liquid that looks clear on my fingers but after popping the hood I take a picture and this is what I see.....please someone tell me what has possibly gon wrong and idk think my mechanic should let me drive off without telling me..NOT TO KEEP DRIVING THAT CAR, cause if the check engine light was on....what was the code and why not tell me the code?.
