I brought my 2000 Honda Civic to my local Castrol shop for an oil change.
After leaving for work the next day my wife told me there was a three foot wide pool of oil where my car was. I moved my car at work and saw a two foot pool of oil where it was parked.
I took the car back to the Castrol shop and was told the engine oil pan gasket had to be replaced for $200. This has never been replaced before.
I said that my car wasn't leaking oil like this before I took it to Castrol and they said it just needed to be replaced.
I declined their repair and drove my car home. Today there's another three foot pool of oil under the engine.
I plan on putting a couple quarts of oil and taking it to an independent mechanic on Tuesday (after Memorial Day).
Did Castrol forget to tighten the oil filter (or something else) and are trying to rip me off? Or does my car need its engine oil pan gasket replaced?
