Default Changing the oil is SO inconvenient

Gawd, who wants to be bothered? I have things to do, like sit around
and chat with my girlfriends at the coffee shop. And those dealerships
are all so grungy....ewwwwwwww, who wants to go THERE. And anyway, I'm
just leasing it--I don't care. They get it back anyway. It's not my
problem.

i've seen and/or repaired a number of seized engines that had been run
dry. they usually lock up long before anything like that happens - so
i'm not sure of the authenticity of that diagnosis. that bearing had
been blown and then driven for a /long/ time for that amount of heating
and deformation to have occurred - it's no simple lube failure you're
looking at there.

talking of which, and further to our recent debate about timing belt
replacement, i finally got to pulling usable bits off the civic motor
that had died from oil strainer clogging and lubrication failure this
weekend. this is the one that died because the cam bearings had welded
themselves solid. well, not only did the cam belt /not/ break, it was
strong enough to have stripped the tooth off the gear that locks it to
the camshaft as the crank continued to turn. no mean feat for a rubber
belt that people are so afraid of breaking.

that's why the dealer offers free donuts.
