Attempt #1 Blowing Up Subaru LX 1.6L Motor ................ FAILED
Attempt #1 at Blowing up a Subaru LX 1.6L Motor. The motor has nothing but oil in it, it has roughly 280000klms on it. Attempt #1 failed because the computer but the engine into Fail Safe because there was no water in the radiator...... Well derrrr it has no radiator. Stay Tuned for Attempt #2, the engine will DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
