They are probably newbies and didn't torque down the oil pan bolt, or they over tightened it with an air impact gun to the point of destroying your Teflon washer/gasket.. Either way IMO you should go back and make them crawl under your car and investigate your new problem Ryan

Do yourself a HUGE favor and don't get oil changes done at Jiffy Lube! Lots of complaints on the net about incompetent service techs doing a half ass job!

They probably didn't put back the drain plug correctly. Go back and have them take a look at it.

Check that the oil filter was installed correctly Check the oil pan bolt and the gasket that goes around it! Normally the oil pan gasket is a type that gets crushed over time and are recommended to be replaced as the "crush" over time!
