Oil Slick
Yesterday Fran called me in a panic. Marissa had to be at soccer practice at one end of town and Logan had a soccer game at the other end of town. But that was not what was bothering her. It was the oil that was pouring out of a hole on the bottom of the motor of the monstrous beast known as the Ford Excursion. Our version of the monster has a 7.3 liter turbo diesel truck engine built by International. Yesterday it was pouring oil all over the garage, driveway and alley. It holds 4 gallons, yes gallons, of oil by the way so it can make quite a mess!

Fran told me that the tow truck driver, an alleged former diesel mechanic, thought it was the rear main seal. Replacing the rear main would require pulling the motor. Luckily it turned out to be a high pressure oil hose that had blown off. Thankfully that is a much smaller job!
