I think my engine is beginning to show its age. Whilst driving Tucker home from work, I kicked down a couple gears to pass an annoyingly slow cat...what happened next would blow my mind...

I heard a loud thump out back, and 30 seconds later there was a rather large cloud of smoke behind my cat.

Apparently, the extra oil pressure from my maneuver must have wore out the oil filter and shot it off the engine. No big deal. I pulled over, whipped out my oil change kit, then got back on the road within 10 years.


The funny thing is that I was less than a thousand miles from my next oil change anyway...so win win as far as I’m concerned lol.
