So yesterday Nebe is like, your car's leaking oil. I'm like no it's not…

Not much later I'm dry and pulling over. Get some oil in her and limp to my mechanic. Nearly stopped and called AAA. I think I dropped about three quarts on the drive over. Bad.

Some research later and it looks like there was a recall on a rubber oil hose that the previous owner never did, or they did and that one failed as well. Current replacement is all metal. Recall expired in March 2013 anyway, but had I know I would have done it.

Anyone actually check on recalls when buying used?

his astute powers of observation have drawn
the attention of scientist's world wide and they
are gathering in droves for an emergency summit meeting.
President Obama has been excluded from the proceedings
based on the fact he knows nothing about switch grass. :)

Raven, I think maybe you should be excluded from the next hemp fest emergency summit.
I get the switchgrass (bio fuel) reference, but what does that really have to do with spences car leaking oil? :smash:

I have noticed that Ravens ramblings, while always enetertaining, have been a bit bizarre of late.

For a guy who seems to always have the answer for everyone else I am surprised that this basic part of buying a used vehicle got by you..... :devil2:

If you went through a dealer, shame on them.

Of course, Block Island Jeff just harvests cod from the surf year round, and makes his own motor oil using their livers
