I had a '78 monte carlo that I went through a number of cheap motors (@$400 installed) with. One had the wrong year dipstick on it and it never registered any oil, so in my infinite teenage wisdom kept adding oil until the car would barely run and billowed white smoke out the exhaust.Anyone else ever had "this problem" after an oil change?
:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:Look on the bright side. You've got plenty of MORON LUBE now. Isn't that the cry of 2a people nowadays? All that MORON LUBE has to be worth something to one of these gun guys.
Mine ain't one o' those!Depends on the car. Lots of cars hold 10.5 quarts and more. Old Jags held eleven quarts, Duesenbergs held twelve quarts, and it cost me $326.00 to buy the Shell oil that Ferrari requires. I had to change the oil in an Enzo Ferrari. Yours probably aint one of these, is it?
:rofl::rofl:In my younger days...... One time I drained the oil and replaced the filter only to find out when I started it up it smoked to beat hell. OOPS! I drained the tranny fluid instead and added 5 more quarts to my oil. Who would have known that 10 quarts could make a really cool smokescreen? :whistling:
I think he was impatient reading the dipstick...I've been a mechanic for 30 years, changed oil on a thousand vehicles and i have never seen such a thing. If the drain plug is in place, it's GOT to show on t he dipstick (new oil is harder to see).
