Talking How he flushed his engine

http://mustangforums.com/forum/5-0l-general-discussion/368307-im-done-with-this-car.html

My car was idling like crap the other day so I figured since I just got it, it may have been awhile since anyone changed the oil out. I decided to go ahead and change the oil. I used Mobile 1 synthentic oil like I was reccomended on here. Anyways, I drain out the oil and noticed it was extremely dark and even after 10 minutes of draining, it was still coming out. I decided to go ahead and flush it to make sure all the bad stuff got out. I hooked up the hose, ran water through the engine, started it up and was waiting for the water to come out clean (The engine never went above idle so I was told this would be ok). Anyways, About 3 minutes into this, then engine starts shaking and shuts off. I figured it was all cleaned out so I plugged it up, added the oil and figured I was ready to go. WRONG! The car won't freaking start now. This car has been nothing but trouble for me, I think I am done with it.

This thing has been around for a while. I think it was determined to be a goof.

*** HOW TO POWER-FLUSH YOUR ENGINE ***

#1.) Fill the crankcase with Diet Coke...

#2.) Pour in 36 tubes of crushed Menthos...

#3.) Start engine and let run for 15 seconds...

#4.) SHUT OFF ENGINE...

#5.) Stand back and watch for leaks.

This guy is getting his jollies playing with with these mulletmobile jockeys.

Successful trolling requires that you make a ridiculous scenario believable to a particular audience and get a response.

If someone posted such a 'tall tale' here they would be identified quickly as a troll and possibly banned.

young guys do this kinda stuff, they want to be into the car scene, so they listen to some punk who sets them up for failure then they are humiliated and go on a rampage like columbine. . .
