I had an Oil Change done on my 2007 Mazda 3 at CT on Friday 31st January, 2014. Today Sunday 2nd February, 2014, i drove to Port Hope and back home. There was a burning smell in the car so i popped the hood and pulled out the dipstick, there was no oil on the dipstick. I called the CT Store and they told me to come in to talk to them tomorrow morning.
I hope there is no engine damage to my car.
Is there anything i can do?.

    Confused Reader, why don't you go back to elementary school to learn some basic reading comprehension instead of TROLLing this site looking for complaints about "Simon Hildyard" and a certain Canadian Tire Auto Centre. He did contact the store FIRST before coming here for advise, not to fix his problem. He got some excellent advice too from essara. Is that why you are so arrogant, bitter and angry?

    Makes sense to ask the Internet for help before contacting the store... I'm sure the Internet can fix your problem!!

    Don't even start your car or add oil to it.

    Just have it towed to the Canadian tire so they don't have any chance to deny and wrong doing.

    Chances are that you need the engine replaced. It CT says no damage was done, Bring it to a mechanic for another opinion. you are lucky the engine did not seize
