    Cartoon running auto maintenance neglect must fall under the cartoon physics umbrella.

    That would explain his car problems— he’s lubing the engine with asphalt…

    That’s what I always called the “Continuous oil change” plan.

    My first car couldn’t pass a service station without having to be filled up with water for the radiator, gas, and oil. Boy, what a lemon! Got rid of it quick!!!

    My company rented a van once, from a national rental company. It was one of those that has a dipstick that seems 6 feet long. Nothing at all on the dipstick when we checked it. We put in five quarts and it was just barely showing. Don’t know whether it was gracious or not; but that company didn’t charge us for the rental.

    I drove a ’64 Dodge pickup that was like that every week!

    My ’62 MGA was like that. Made it from CA to Texas on a case of oil. Drive till the oil pressure dropped, stop and fill up with oil. I had a VERY clean oil pan as sludge never had a chance to accumulate.

    One of my Dad’s old clunkers was called “the oil well” by our local garage attendants. Their “mechanic” never found the silver-dollar sized hole in the oil pan!

    The older Jaguar’s would use oil without smoking. Of course, something had to give when you cruised a XK150 “at speed”. At speed meant ≈ 40 over the speed limit. My friend’s XK120, XK140 and XK150s all did the same. Fun cars, though…

    I change the oil every 6 months due to low mileage.
    It’s 3,000 miles or 6 months which ever comes first.

    Everyone’s comments today were just great….and I could relate to them from cars back in the day….

    rshive…One thing I thought to ask you about that dip stick…Did you happen to ever look under the van when the stick was in ? You might have seen it coming out the bottom of the van…so funny…

    My first car’s gas gauge didn’t work (it was an old jalopy), so I had to continually put gas in it. One night, around eight o’clock, I was driving down a rather lonely main street when my car decided to run out of gas! =-O Across the street, THANKFULLY, was a gas station on the verge of closing down. I was able to pull in and got some gas. The station closed up right after that. I never even saw another gas station, open or not, as I continued down the road. Fortunately, I was able to get rid of it and bought a car with a Working gas gauge! ;)
