I was heading out catch the first showing of Indiana Jones, it began to drizzle so I pulled off the roadway to put the top up, all was well, I pulled back onto the roadway accelerated and within a few seconds all kinds of noise was coming from under the hood, smoke billowing out from behind me, I pulled immediately into a parking lot, oil was pouring out from under the engine on the passenger side, I couldn't see from where it originated, but the entire contents of the pan drained, I thought maybe I had hit some road debris, I didn't recall seeing anything and a walk back to the area confirmed there was nothing in the roadway. the oil patten on the asphalt looked as though it had been slung as there was a repetitive cast off splatter in the path I took into the parking lot.
So now my car sits alone in an empty parking lot and I have to get a tow into the dealership tomorrow morning, since i really have no idea what the cause was, I have a bad feeling they will take the opportunity to bend me over the railing on this one...
any thoughts, ideas, prayers... right now I'll take anything
