ever do something stupid like this? well i did a few months ago when i decided to add oil to my car but forgot to put the cap back on. so there i was 30 mins later driving onto the free way :drive: when i smelled burning oil. i though damn i musta spilled some oil on the engine. a few mins after that thought and i acually started seeing smoke come out of my hood. got off the free way pulled into a parking lot opened the hood and smacked myself :slap: because i forgot to put the dam cap back on. so anywho i never found it couse i thought it was a goner so i got a replacement one from the dealership. well today i did the conversion cartridge oil filter to spin on and guess what popped out from behind the plastic bottom engine cover?? my old oil cap yay! heh now i got a spare one in case i pull something like that again. im kinda surprised it stayed there for so long.

it wasn't too bad.the egine cover blocked most of the oil that spewed out but it did loose a good amount of it.
