Same for me - went to a place back in '92 that changed the oil in my F-150 in a "jiffy". Friend drove it to the mall to pick up a couch and called saying it was making weird noises - she drove it back to my house.
The weird noises was a rod that spun a bearing, most likely due to no oil in engine. Turns out the filter was not tighten - and with only gauges and no idiot lights for oil pressure, she never looked at the gauges.
They offered me $200 towards the repair - "Prorated" as the truck was a '78 with 150K on it. Never a problem with it until THAT oil change.
