a friend of mine had a saturn sl2 and it burned oil, so he was adding oil all the time. one time he added and forgot to put the cap on...and drove 100 miles home from college for the weekend! Towards the end of the trip the car was acting strangely. When he got home, he popped the hood, oil was all over, and the cap was still there, it had fallen and was wedged between some a/c lines. He added more oil, put the cap on, and everything was fine!coldtotouch said:i've heard of an incident at a canadian tire where a mechanic forgot to put back a customers oil cap (on the valve cover) after doing an oil change, and then starting the motor... :shock:
~$5 on plugs and 45 on wires that I returned later that day.SETI20 said:Can't believe you didn't check this as one of the first things, before you spent all that cash. Well worked out in the end tho.
I've driven for a week with SEVERAL tools left on the lip by the winshield and found them a week later, but my best is when I left my wallet on the roof, drove home 12 miles from a store and it was still there!FooFighter said:In my old Hyundai Excel I was adding oil and forgot to put the cap back on...
I drove for a week before I noticed that one of the cylinders had just seized!
