Fish in a Barrel: Contents Under Pressure: I had a VW Beetle back in the day, with an oil cooled engine. THAT needed a lot of tending. The P1 I had - well, let's just say I forgot about the oil for. oh, three years. Never had a problem, but felt silly when the service guy reminded me that I had not had the car checked for three years.

I did that with my first car, an '82 Honda Accord. I changed the oil when the filter got so clogged that the oil pressure light would come on when I accelerated. The oil was lumpy when we drained it.


I did that too, with my 84 Nissan, except instead of getting a warning light, I threw every rod.

Next you're going to tell me there's no such thing as blinker fluid or a piston return spring.

If that's true, why does they keep showing up on my bill when I change my oil every 300 miles?
