Question about 2010 Chevrolet HHR
I had an oil change done at Mineke, just there standard 3,000 mile oil. I drove maybe a mile and the engine light and the oil light came on. I pulled over in a parking lot and shut the engine down and checked the oil level three-five minutes later. there was no oil on the dipstick. drove back to Mineke. Josh (mgr) said the oild was a quart low and apoligized. They then took it for a test drive and hookes uo a scanner on it. after five minutes or so. The tech went and got another scanner and the engine light was off. I then left there parking lot and drove maybe a mile and it had no power, was idiling rough and kept wanting to die.

Take your car to a real shop, not one with pretend mechanics, and have it evaluated by a qualified mechanic for engine damage. It sounds like they either forgot to put oil in, or didn't tighten the drain plug or filter and you lost most of your oil. If damage is found, and the qualified mechanic states that the damage could be due to oil starvation, file a claim with Meineke. Be prepared for a runaround (hundreds of YouTube videos on these ripoff shops - Meineke, Jiffy Lube, etc).

Sounds like a possible fuel pump problem...When they begin to go bad they will overheat and lock up, then work fine for a while and do the same thing again. By changing the filter you lowered the flow resistance and allowed the pump to work a bit easier but still being bad, it did the same thing again. There are other things that can do this as well, but pump is most common.
