I've only had one oil change go wrong, and I fully admit it was my own lack of attention to detail. Back when I bought my '00 Celica GTS, I decided to do plugs and oil. Went for the 0w Mobil 1 since I had used it for eons on my Yaris before then. It's always hot here anyway. Drained it just fine, didn't even drop the nut. Didn't check that the old crusty seal came off with the old oil filter. Stuck the new filter on, poured all that fresh oil in, got off the ramps and started the car. Beep beep! Oil light immediately on, and 4 quarts evacuated all over the driveway. ****in' dual sealed the filter. Felt like a moron then, feel like a moron today about it.
