had quite a scare today!

So I'm pulling out of the parking lot at work to go get lunch when my manager flags me down pointing to something on the ground so I stop and roll down the window to see what he wants.

Well it turns out there was a good sized puddle of fresh oil sitting there where my car had been so I take a quick peek under the car and sure enough, there's a bunch of oil spread around down there so I take it easy driving home and take the truck back to work after I eat.

I take off of work a bit early so that I'll have a bit of daylight and hurry home to jack the car up and see what's going on. I figured that one of my blower oil lines was messed up since I made them out of heater hose (replacing them this winter with braided steel lines). Turns out that the oil is comming out around the oil filter, I look at it and can see the gasket sticking out so I go to the autoparts store and get another filter. I swap them when I get back and sure enough there's 2 gaskets in there. The last time I changed oil the gasket stayed on the engine.


Funny thing is, this makes me glad that a spark plug blew out cuz that kept me from driving a 24 hour round trip with the oil filter set up like this!!! If that thing would have started spewing oil going down the interstate then I'd have a blown motor!!!!

Dang...I guess the spark plug thing didn't turn out all bad.

Yep, no damage done as far as I can tell. I'm sooooooo glad I didn't go to the BMC meet now!
