i see steam rising from my hoodscoop and this foul stench. I disregarded it thinking it was just the cold weather and the hot motor, and also closed the vents so the smell doesnt come in. I got on the on ramp but before merging with traffic pulled over to the sholder, anyways long story short i didnt hear it but the oil cap popped off any of youy guys experience this, first time its ever happened
yea i iknow it is, reason why im posting this topic, not a lot but a good amount of oil shot out, now i gotta clean all that crap out. but im almost 100% sure its pep boys' fault. Since toyota raised their oil change prices, which is absolutely retarded, i went to pep boys, but i guess thats what i get
fuck pep boys and fuck toyota, i cant believe they're charging me 40 bux at toyota, but i seriously would of been better off, becuase the people at pep boys are retarded. yea i know its not hard to change your oil, jack upcap form bottom and top let it flow out then put new in. but that means id have to buy an expensive jack so my head doesnt get crushed under the factory pussy jack.
actually that shit just happened to me a few days ago, engine smoked up but i thought it was the rain, and when i smelled that i thought it was the car in front of me, only a few days later did i realize the smell was from my car so i popped the engine and the engine cap was sitting on top of my engine and oil was everywhere. DAM!!!
damn..that sux..word of caution for those of you that have someone change ur oil..'ALWAYS CHECK THE CAP WHEN U PICK UP UR CAR'..betta save then sorry..the only reason i would let someone change my car oil is because of the weather, snow is the only time i'll let someone do it..other then that i'll do it myself..cuz when you do it and you mess up then it's ur own damn fault, if a shop do it they probably won't admit to it..

one thing too ,i used to work at a toyoya dealership in the bay area and the oil they use is .(lets just say its real cheap and no one at the dealership uses it on there own car) If i do haved to get my oil changed i would go to the dealership with my own oil and filter,they can not charge you the full amount for an oil change if you supply your own stuff.as i pep boys i would for sure talk to a manager there thats complete bull****. if they were the last to work on it they are respnsible.
Live like a movie star, Drink like a rock star, F*** like a PORN STAR!!
If you heard it POP, I'd take the PCV should be taken off, cleaned with carb cleaner and reinstalled. It's supposta burp the blowby pressure from the valve cover. Even so, the cap should have been tightened!!!!! Change the O- Ring on the oil cap for good measure.
