    Why deliberately abuse/neglect a mechanical device and try to rationalize the basis for such behavior?

    According to this thread he wants to pocket an extra $133 and roll the dice on a ~5k engine for a couple of years. What disturbs me is what about the next guy? He will be a person most likely of less means that will ultimately pay for all this. All to save a person of most likely much great means $133. Obviously the OP does not even remotely believe in Karma or any thing the sort. One way to look at is that this is a reason you might not get top dollar on your next trade in. If this becomes the norm it will drive used truck prices down eventually. I check for this type of abuse on used vehicles by looking in the oil on the dip stick and running my finger inside the oil cap hole in the valve cover and then check you finger for sludge. If any is present, run. Same applies to women.
