    I just got done changing my oil, everything seems fine check leaks. so i'm setting there on the fender smokin letting it run for a second. i feel my feet getting wet, so i thought the water hose was still just runnin on my feet tell i take a step and bust my fucking ass. i got oil all over myback and in my hair.
    so i turn the car off and tell my girl friend to get in a start to let me see where it was leaking from. I get sprayed in the face. well any way the rubber gasket off of the old oil filter was still on the car. i take it off tightin the oil filter back down and i only lost about qt 1/2 of oil.

    Lessoned Learned= always double check the old oil filter

    Worst oil incident of my life:
    I was workin as shop attendant at a dealership and part of my duties was to drain the large oil tank that's used to collect used motor oil from oil changes. Well this tank was one of those big bastards, probly 40 gallon capacity with an air line that would force all the oil out through the dump hose at a high rate of speed. Unless of course, you forget to close the main valve on the top. Well, you guessed it, I forgot. Not only that but I was leaning over the tank when I plugged in the air hose. This caused a high pressure stream of used motor oil to blast me in the face, forcing it into my nasal passageways, mouth, ears, everywhere. The one half of the shop was covered in a mixture of used oil, tranny fluid, brake fluid, etc. and so was I. So the shop foreman comes over, looks at me and says "Wasssup nigga?"

    But yeah oil sucks, be glad you only got 1/2 a quart on you.

    lol
    interesting stories

    in the shop i share with my friend i would be the messy one
    i can't manage to do an oil change without getting some oil somewhere
    even if its just a drop, although its usually more

    so i was changing the oil in a jeep a couple months back
    i did a stellar job, didn't get a single drop of oil on the concrete floor
    so i get all done and pull the jeep out
    as i'm driving out i hear a crunch
    yea, i drove over the oil pan, 5 quarts of oil everywhere
    i just closed the garage door and drove to napa for 4 bags of speedi dry
    called my friend who was on the way back to the shop and told him to not even bother going inside

    In my shop my boss asked me to change the Oil in a Ferrari 365 California. I said "Gladly!" and then ran to get the oil and bucket.

    I setup the ferrari using all I learned. The mechanics gathered around. I dropped the oil plug and let the dirty old Agip pour from the elevated car to the stand-up drain bucket. All the mechanics lined up and smiled as the bucket began to fill.

    My boss, who could no longer contain himself, asks me "Steve ! How many quarts of oil does the Ferrari 365 hold?"

    "Uh... hmm.. Not sure. 6?"

    "Nope." The bucket is filling to the handle.

    "8?"

    "Nope." The bucket is now filled to the tube, and climbing the tube quickly

    "Oh god Frank, how many quarts?"

    Frank kicks the spare bucket he had behind his back over to me "16. Next time don't be afraid to ask"

    I as well have experienced the "oops forgot the gasket"...

    The one I liked was a mechanic that worked for my ex... He was emptying a 6 qt drain bucket into the big 50 gallon drainage tank behind the building... But its on kind of a slope, and there were leaves everywhere, and a fence that ends the property... Well, he was apparently walking to the tank with the bucket, and we hear OHHHSHITT!!! in a Spanglish voice... We go over, and there he is, on the ground, 6 quarts of oil ALL OVER HIM, and missing a shoe... Apparently when he slipped and fell, his shoe went up and over the fence, and was never to be found again... :)

    Ky don't feel stupid. that's easily overlooked.

    I knew a guy in high school that tipped a teachers car over. He started cranking the jack from the side of the car. The stands he had didn't fit and he couldn't find the corvette stands.

    Next thing I hear from the front of the class.

    "OH FUCK!"

    Then crunch, then glass breaking. Then the car hit the fence.

    Yep... our shop teacher was pissed, but not nearly as pissed as one of our science teachers was when he stopped by the shop to get his car after school.

    Edit: I think it was the same guy who, after our shop teacher told us to NOT take the center nut off the strut, took the center nut off the strut... letting the tension off the spring... forcing the nut to hit the hood, hit the engine, angle perfectly through the underside of the open hood at the windshield, cracking it & then bouncing off of it, landing 40 feet outside in the parking lot.

    I still wonder if that dipshit failed...

    the reason i feel stupid is that i have had the gasket stick on me before, but i checked the old filter and it looked like it was kinda thier it just looked like it had oil on it, it was just oil no gasket
