I stopped by a local (nearest shop to me - ten miles away) auto repair shop to pick up some farm fresh eggs (they’re sold there), grab a coffee (it’s free there), and BS (it’s spoken there) a little with the guys.
While I was there, a customer dropped off a Ford Windstar van and told of two problems. The van was getting poor mileage and had a troublesome oil leak. Once up in the air, the source of the oil that was clinging to and dripping from the underside of the vehicle, from the engine on back, was identified.
I kid you not, the oil filter metal had rusted through and no longer held oil !
The fix was an oil change and new filter.
Unbelievable or what ?
