Default Uh-oh

So i went over some lrt tracks and something flew up and punctured my oil filter. My check engine light came on right away and i smelt burning oil, so I pulled into the chinkook center parking lot and found a spot right away and check it out.




The old filter


The new one




So i had to do an oil change in the parking lot without a jack.
Ran over to kal-tire and they gave me some paper towel
Bought some oil and a filter from Jack Carter
And borrowed a filter wrench from Mr. Lube

Had it fixed in 20mins
