Default And we're down again =(

ok soo we all remember what happened last winter.. turbo seals blew out and was out of a car for about 4 months waiting for my seals to come back from deadbolt. anywho.. well now tonight my car completely went bone dry on oil while i was driving..didn't smell it burning off out of the exhaust like last year but noticed it when my oil light came on and it started making a loud ticking noise.. parked the car to see what was up..check the oil, empty.. no sign of it burning anywhere. look under the car...puddle of oil forming... right below where the oil filter is.... haven't got a garage to work on it yet. being negative 40 when this happened i'm guessing that may be a long shot but this is my guess.. the oil had become to thick (5W30) almost sludgy with the tempature.. which completely shot through the oil filter seals and just decided to let itself out. that's my theory so far..what do you guys think ? this is the 2nd timei 've had a problem keepign oil in my car and i'm very very uptight about my car as most of ya know and i do regular maintenance on it. The car has just hit 18k miles on it and its an 06 that i bout in oct of 05. so it's fairly new still why does this keep happening to me why? hopefully my assumption is correct and it's not the turbo seals again i'd be pissed off and would probably commit insurance fraud with my car.

Yeah I knew this guy who had a bad ass Formula Firebird with a lot of work done to it. Well one day it just magically burst into flames in his driveway. But lucky for him he took out his 4 thousand dollar stereo system the night before.

I still want to kill that guy for destroying such a nice car.

its funny some guy called me hear and told me he hit a ditch that had about a foots worth of water in it and his splash guard got torn off. he said after he hit the ditch he noticed a dragging sound.... he wanted me to warranty the splash guard because he only saw it hanging on by a bolt. i told him that its because of the impact that probably made the plastic clips come off. then he tries to tell me he's going to usethe lemon law... i lol at him on the phone...(dont think he liked that too much). i asked him does he even know wtf the lemon law is......
