Exclamation Drain Plug Came Off!!

Yeah you read it correctly. It doesn't always pay to have someone else change your oil. Down on the highway I hear a "clink" and now I have no oil and i'm stranded. Anyhow we filled it up and gave it a test start and it cranks but doesn't start. It sounds normal. no bad noises. Any ideas/suggestions. I need help quick so anything is worth looking at!

how long do you crank it for...you may have to add oil to your HPOP reservior to get things to pop off. If it cranks then you know you aren't siezed which is a good thing. Yeah id be on the phone with the oil change place and have them pay for some diagnostics and repair fees

you definately could have to crank it for a while and fill the HPOP resevour....when it does start DONT SHUT IT OFF untill you run it a good 15 miles or so...what happened is you now have no oil to run the injectors either...so thats more than likely why it wont fire.....

Man that sucks. Glad to hear the engine cranks over normally. Every time I hear hear about someone having a problem at these "quickie" oil change places, I just cringe. We have a couple around here that are on a first name basis with our shop. I have replaced everything from oil pans to rear ends to engines because of these places. It's not that I am complaining about the work they send my way, just their lack of knowledge and quality of work. It gives all of us who work on cars for a living a bad reputation. The worst thing is that the other day, I saw a sign at one of 'em advertising brakes and tune-ups. Scares me.
