MAJOR OH S**T!!!
You know when you go to park the truck after a long week and you see that your truck just left spots all over the ground and you reach down to see if its power steering fluid and its not. Then you take a closer look under the truck and you see a nice big puddle of black oil pouring down from the top end. One of three things come to your mind... Either one, you simply forgot to snug up the oil filter cap. two, easy of the two dipstick was not put down(no no), or maybe you forgot to put the oil cap back on tight. WRONG!!!!!
I pop the hood and climb up to see and well, i guess in my double of checks I, my dumbass self forgets to tighten down the oil filter cap(been like this all day and last night too) My jaw went down, heart went to my throat and i almost fell down. it was only two maybe three turns on. Pulled dipstick, NOTHING!!!! im completely upset and about to slam my head into the ground at this point.
I called for help, luckly my mom and dad were not to far from where i was. told them what i needed and 15 mins later help arrived. 2 gals and a 1qt later oil was half between max and min on the dipstick. Double checked and had my dad even check the oil filter cap, oring and filter, everything was fine. Snugged down the cap, had dad check to comfirm. and crossed my fingers, dotted my EYES and said a hal Mary before i turned the key. Truck started fine and didnt knock, hiss, piss, smoke, cough, etc. Strange thing, was i never got a low oil pressure light or nothing. not alarms, nothing.
So, with this all being said, either i got really lucky(which im still a major dumbass for doing what i did) or God really cares about me, cause so far, im thinking the motor, turbos, and whatnots are okay.
Let me have it guys, i deserve something and swift kick in the *** would probably do the trick. Only happens once and that all it would take for me to make if this cost repairs.
