People have been this way for like ever. I started working in a garage as a kid in the late 50's. We would get calls from people that their car would not start in cold weather. We would tow it to the garage, let it warm a little and pull the oil drain plug. After about 5 minutes stuff would start to fall out. Note--not run out.
Starting problem solved with a WAY past due oil change.
And oh (seeing starting fluid can)
How many times did you use it?
customer "once or twice, not much"
Jumped it with a big ol bus battery. Cranked right over. Blew off the valve covers, oil pan and some of my hair.
So it's not a new thing.
