Guess What Happened Here

On the lighter side, after agonizing with us over the last 3 weeks, I thought you would like this.

The Scene, we had just tied to the dock for the first time in 3 weeks, and wanting to change the oil, I was preparing to change the oil, when I noticed a little spot of transmission fluid.

Wondering where it came from I...(fill in the blanks)

Well, no suntan lotion needed that day.

I take it the transmission fluid was pressurized even though the engine was off?

How long does it take the pressure to go down?

Soon as the engine is off basically.

That's why I asked. If the lines or the case were still pressurized after the engine is off, something is wrong.

Unless of course he was messing with say the lines or perhaps dip stick while the engine was running.

Time for laundry? A shower? Spill your beer?

Time for a haircut? That looks recent enough...

Hint:

" As I prepared to change oil, I noticed some tranny fluid"

therefore, I started doing two things at once.

THe worst of it is the engine ER looks the same as me

So you sprayed yourself with engine oil from the oil change pump.

Been there done that.

That's a pretty energetic spray, with an excellent broadcast pattern. Hmm.

Left cap on OC pump discharge hose, then pump turned on, found weak spot in plumbing?

When I change the oil. The 1st thing I do is punch a hole in the oil filter so it drains.

But then, seeing the transmission oil, I wondered where it came from.
I told Micah, start the engine, but be prepared to shut it off quickly.
Well in the first second, my first thought was "this was a good idea as I clearly have a big leak. In the seocnd second I realized this is way to much oil and it's hot, ..
the engine probably only cranked, ran for 3 seconds, but that was enogh to cover almost every part of the ER with oil.

We spent the day yesterday wiping everything down.

As I took a shower, scrubbing myself the third time, I was grateful that for once we were not pitching and rolling.

THe oil change pump hose getting loose, that happens every other time. No this one was special.

Dang. I do boneheaded things daily. But never cranked an engine after pricking the filter!!

You get kudos for doing the transatlantic twice.

Still get a knucklehead award for this.

You ought to keep the shirt as a reminder, and a trophy!!
