I had a routine oil change where I was told I had an oil leak, and took it to a mechanic. He was suppose to repair the leak. It leaked out on my car port.

I didn’t notice this until it was too late. My BMW X 3 stopped on the freeway without warning. The mechanic said it was the timing chain was broken and not a leak to cause the engine to loose compression.

I took it to another mechanic and he said the chain was not broken and the engine has failed. I paid for premium warranty they would cover any repairs. All this happened so sudden, I tried everything to prevent costly repairs, and after spending $1000, I still need an engine!
