I do enjoy working on the vehicle though... it gives me a sense of accomplishment. Sometimes it's just faster or less of a hassle and I have a little more confidence in what I'm doing vs some kick Well that's because you're older and wiser than me I remember a couple of years back, I was getting ready to drive down to LA to take my girls to Disneyland. Day prior to departure I was going to change the oil real quick. All went well. When putting on the filter it felt strange as I was tightening it on... like it didn't tighten up like usual, felt a little squishier. Got it tightened up, started the engine, and after just a few seconds I'm hearing this slapping noise from the engine so I shut it down real quick. Looked under the hood that was still open and saw oil EVERYWHERE! The filter gasket got dislodged and was what was preventing the filter from seating and tightening properly. Oil was squirting into the fan which in turn sprayed oil all over. Now that was a mess!
