...she noticed all dashboard lights came on and she claims she turned of the engine, i believe the engine turned its self off

Update : so she’s lucky that the engine is an 8 valve engine. We looked everywhere, tested everything and the engine is not damaged. It’s running right now. She got really really lucky.

Suuuper sketchy. Whole thing wanted to pull out of the oil pan. Showed the service writer before hand and they explained to the customer we aren’t responsible if something goes wrong. Customer was cool with that. Didn’t want to pay for a new oil pan. Made sure to document it all over the RO.
