terrible mess.

so i was taking my girlfriend to dinner last night and pulled into to the parking lot diid i circle and parked. i stepped out of the truck and smelt burt oil, looked down and saw oil EVERYWHERE. i mean all over the parking lot and everywhere on my truck. i was freakin out. so i got my mag lite out and did some lookin and thinkin and found the problem. the filter had busted three threads and managed a leak which lead to oil spewing all over the place. so i got a new filter and some oil and fixed it in the parking lot. all good no. but check out these pics.

this was at begining. i lost 2 3/4 gallons.

I hope you moved your truck after you fixed it. Don't want that mess comin' back on you.
