yea how was the oil level ?? and where did you get the oil done .. If it was a quick lube shop its not uncomman to have it done incorrectly. one posability is they used the wrong oil as I believe the diesles use different oils they might have put in regular oil. If its the wrong oil it can cause the oil to go to easily threw the system which causes engine damage. If it was not 5W30 it was the wrong oil. They could have put in 5W40 instead which is thicker and would be the same result engine damage due to lack of oil quickly circulating. I have only ever used castrol in my vw's but penzoil is not a bad alternative.
