Yes, a few of us were wondering why it blew. It seems quite obvious that
"The Grease Spot" screwed up on the coolant flush. You might be able to
recover damages. Another sad demonstrator that "quickie lube" or chain
repair shops are to be avoided at all costs. Certainly Saquib's motor
would have been in much better shape now if he had just left the old oil
and coolant in there and had no service at all.
