  1. Engine for sale, like new, only used twice, serious inquiries only!
    I kid, I kid! As a serious tip though, be sure to occasionally check your oil level, older cars tend to burn more oil and it's a headache that can be easily avoided by checking your dipstick while your car fills up with gas. If you're into Instagram, consider following: https://www.instagram.com/engineeringexplained/. For product links, check the video description, like this $55K thermal camera haha – http://amzn.to/2mgV8XS. Shout out to FLIR for letting me borrow the camera!

  2. Wow! So my car likely seized not from lack of oil but a broken oil pump. Flat 6 going about 60mph. Regularly check the oil sump/pressure. Then one night 60 mph 0/0 sump pressure. But I check that all the time so it could not have been more tha 15 minutes.

  3. No oil = friction of the metals = reducing engine's life. Interesting that no oil does not necessarily means that the temperature will be different.

  4. I wonder how much difference it would make if you used a solvent & got all the oil out first? another test plz?

  5. My wife sun killed a Toyota Highlander 4 cylinder drove Syracuse N.Y. from Rochester N.Y. on no oil change in months Engine shut down on Highway towed .
