Butter or OIl
Whoever said, "A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing," was right. I have enough mechanical savvy to be dangerous.
While out for a drive, I heard some pinging and dinging under the hood. 'Not a good sign,' I thought. When I pulled into the driveway, I popped the hood, propped it up with that thing-a-ma-jig arm thing, and proceeded to take a look-see. Since, I was out of motor oil, I decided to go in the house and melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat to replace the oil. Bad idea.
For a long time it smelled like burnt steel on toast around here.
