    Before you change the oil, make sure you change the diaper…

    Lessons from my old man: changing oil : The broken down weak oil drains first, the grimy sludge drains last. Never hurry it, drain into a oil pan and get a beer. Come back in 1/2 hour and see if it is still dripping. If so get another beer. Make sure all the grim is out before replugging the pan. Replace filter each time. Fill to mark on stick and get another beer.

    Not quite. You can do most of the repairs needed to pass a Pennsylvania auto safety inspection, which is one of the most-rigorous in the world..
    For those who don’t have auto safety inspection where you live, this is a good procedure to make sure that your car is safe:

    My Mom taught me how to change oil as well when I was younger…I can have spare tires just in case I get a flat on the highway…or anywhere for that matter…

    And be sure to put the plug back in after you drain the oil and replace it. My husband didn’t do that, I drove the Toyota from south St. Petersburg to USF in north Tompa (36 miles), and got back nearly to the Howard Frankland Bridge when the engine made a funny little sound and I noticed that the heat gauge was on red. The car never was the same after that.

    To be fair: Once I checked the oil and forgot to put the cap back on. Ultimately it made a right proper mess!

    A bit less didactic, perhaps
    Try talking TO your students rather than AT them

    yah, I did that once myself.

    the engine seized up completely. so no, the car was never the same, coz it had to have a completely new (rebuilt) engine.

    -
    Good point.
    I used to have a boss who would drop everything to listen to any problem I had.
    Others asked me why he was so attentive.
    I explained I made a $150,000 one day because he was too busy to be bothered so I made a (bad) decision.

    DHG, how did a bad decision net you $150,000?

    A Common ‘tater: I feel the same way about my Prius. MPG in the low 50s is greatly appreciated, but I wouldn’t dare tamper with all that dual propulsion stuff like I did with my ’57 beetle. Plus I have less agility than I did back then.

    I bet she must learned to change oil before learned how to put on lipstick.
