Default Lets all have a moment of silence for an abused 3800

I was over at the inlaws yesterday, so they mention about needing an oxygen sensor, so I went to see if the bosch I took out of my car would work, ( only 1 year old) anyways I open the hood, man is that engine area dirty, looks like someone took and dumped dirt in there.Oxygen sensor didn't work, guess ser. I and ser. II have different connections. Then the mother in law starts about how they haven't changed the oil since they moved 5 months ago. I was like lovely. So I check the trans fluid, needed some, so I put some in, same with the antifreeze. I checked the oil, it was way over filled, black as night, and thick. I closed the hood and walk away with a tear in my eye. Hate to see a fellow 3800 suffering so much. Its beond me how someone could invest so much money into a 1997 regal and not take care of it. Ok , I'm done ranting.

In a case like this you need to trade a tune up for baked goods and home made jam. Dont do it all at once either, let keep baking
