Leak After Oil Change

(1997 Honda Accord)
in Annandale, VA on August 03, 2010
I had my oil changed today at an Exxon place. My car began making noises; check engine light came on, check oil light came on. Had it towed back to the Exxon place (which is closed tonight). Any suggestions?

Did you check the engine oil level after you switched off the car, if it was low or empty perhaps the drain plug was not properly tightened or the oil filter seal was not properly installed or even the oil filter was incorrect or incorrectly installed but you will have to wait for their report in the morning. Too bad you didn't check the oil level first yourself in case they just top it up and say everything was OK.
