Q: I was told my engine was torn up. on 2012 Chevrolet Malibu

we had the oil changed when it was due with synthetic oil as it says in the manual. two weeks later, the oil pressure light came on and then the engine light.
we parked the car and immediately called the tow truck to tow it back to the dealer. they are accusing me of driving without oil which I disclaimed because the triple a tow driver checked the oil and told us that it was full.
now i am faced with the possibility of having to pay for a new engine even though the car is under warranty. How could this happen ?

dont quote me but i believe there is oil pump n if it went out then mayb that was why u lost pressure. n no oil pressure is def not good for a car. u might want to look into this.
