...wherever the department gets their service done there was a tech who drained it but didn’t fill it. After it blew it was inspected with no oil on the dipstick. After sitting and checking it again oil magically appeared. At least that’s the story I heard.

...A small oil leak on a beater Chevy wasn’t something I was gonna drop everything for. Told them I’d be out in a few days. In the meantime I get a text saying they stopped the leak but not it won’t start.. gasket sealer on a crankshaft position sensor will tend to do that...

Update to this post (seen in JRitS vol 65)

The adjuster came out and I got pretty sideways with him over their choice to fix it. He was adamant that it needed to be fixed and not totaled. He said the price they needed it at before it would be totaled out was $37k.
