Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's valve gasket


You know those YouTube channels about "my weird neighbor"? I'm thinking of starting something like that, except from the weird neighbor's point of view. Although, I think he thinks I'm weirder than I think he is.

Anyway, it's always a good time to check how the beer supply is going when he's under the hood of his car, and yesterday was valve gasket time!

7. What's wrong with it?

 


The valve cover is supposed to keep all that stuff on the inside, right?

3. I'd put a new gasket on and keep driving it.

6. Well, I believe that was the plan

 


I mean, hey, it probably looked like that for a long time before he got the leak in the gasket, so....

I haven't seen him start it up again yet, so I'll have to drop by tomorrow.

9. Nah, he never wondered why he had to keep adding radiator fluid...

... or why, if he ever did check his oil, it looked odd.

A mix of hot oil, water, and ethylene glycol will make a mess like that.

10. I was thinking it looked like it had been contaminated with coolant....

But it wasn't all that light in color.

I had a vehicle which blew a head gasket. The oil looked almost tan in color after that.

Either way, that is one fucked up looking top end!!
