Been there, done that - about 25 years ago. I was under the transmission wondering what was stopping it from moving back to let it drop down. I noticed the tube and just yanked it out - completely forgetting that I hadn't drained it yet. I looked like a gunshot victim, but also discovered that ATF makes your hair soft....My weekend Bozo moment: C4 auto dipstick tube was leaking and I finally received the new O-ring so time to change it out. Unbolted the dipstick tube from the head and pulled the dipstick tube out and heard what sounded like a splash. Looked underneath and see transmission fluid streaming out of the dipstick tube hole. It eventually turned into a slow trickle by the time I got a pan underneath it.
Garage floor was a mess to say the least... Doh!
Almost spit my tea on the laptop reading that one.I confounded Tracy the checkout person at HD this am. I had a odd assortment of fertilizer, rat traps, paint brushes and some other thing. Tracy asked what I had going this weekend. I told her the days project was to kill some rats, paint them then dip em in the fertilizer and see if they would still grow. WHAT!?!?!??! was her response.
Several years ago, I picked the Mustang up from the restorer and drove it home for a show the next day. Car wouldn't start in the morning cuz it was out of gas, in the garage. And no, there was no gas leak overnight.I ran the Mustang out of gas on a test run, 1 mile from the house…wife to the rescue!

lol....seen similar before. I got called over to troubleshoot a cellular install in one of our board member's car. He complained that the phone would shut off on his way to work and wouldn't come back on until he was half way home. Found that the installer had tapped into the twilight switch. He would leave home in the dark, phone worked fine. Halfway to work the sun would be coming up and the headlights and phone would shut off. Sun would be setting as he was driving home and lights and phone would power back up.Not this weekend, but when I was cleaning up the wiring under my dash I noticed an empty bullet connector that I thought I had traced correctly to hot 12V to use as my radio power source. I wired everything up, added a male bullet connector, loomed it, etc. and what do you know, the radio works perfectly. Then I close the door and it shuts off. Turns out I wired it to the interior lights...
