Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray here and will be the expert helping you tonight.
Here the simplest thing to do here would be to sue the dealership who performs the oil change in small claims for the cost of new engine.Your argument is that they were negligent ans should be liable since the manufacturer will not warranty this.
You can sue yourself here in small claims up to $10k.
You file suit in the jp court where the dealership is located.
Here are sample forms and self help.
The dealership here is likely owned by a corporation and has a registered agent, you can locate that person.
Send a demand letter here to that person for the cost of the engine, when you file in small claims you serve them too.They will take this seriously if you address your demand to the proper person.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I wish you the best and sorry you are having to go through all of this.
Also file a complaint with Texas AG Consumer Section.
Well you can get at least most of it back.I wish you the best here.Thanks again.
