Thanks Neal, I appreciate your quick & accurate response.
I had a mechanic do some repair work & when he took it for a test drive the oil filter was damaged & the oil leaked out... I followed the oil trail for 1/2 mile when it was no longer visible... He continued to drive another 1.2 miles to return to his shop... At that point is when he says the oil light came on... He burned up the starter trying to restart it, but it would not start...Upon dropping the oil pan he found the crank shaft had spun bearings...I feel more damage than that was done, such as the turbo running without oil & the engine should be replaced... I have only 93,000 miles on the vehicle...He claims no responsibility & I should put it on my warranty or truck insurance.
