Default OMG... I'm lucky to be alive...

The Story:

So two weeks ago, I'm pulling out of an ATM having just used my g/f's spare, after having my wallet stolen the previous day, and my car starts smoking white. Feels like I was missing on a cylinder. So, I just keep driving (of course ) until I get down the street to where IW as going and pull in. Pop the hood, yep, white smoke, but a STRONG smell of gas! It was at night, and I couldn't see well, so I said screw it, I'll look at it in the morning.

Well, two weeks later, I decided to get off my lazy and and have a look. I pull the spark plugs, and sure enough, they're covered in a silver dust and.. gas? Hrm. Was expecting oil. Especially after sitting two weeks. Next, I take off my upper charge pipe (one to the throttle body) nothing weird here. Then I take off the exhaust manifold, and turbo.. and glance into the charge pipe. What did I see?

I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES!!!!!!!!! Full... of GAS! MY intercooler and charge pipes full to brim with raw fuel!

...more on this story as it developes!

How was the car still able to run if it would load up that bad? Do you know what caused it?

That's just it, it didn't. Once I stopped it. I couldn't get it started again. Apparently since I was still driving I was pushing the gas through my charge system.


Anyway, latest update.. I drained the oil from the oil pan and came up with 2 gallons of oil? ...oh wait, yes GAS!! There was about 3 quarts of oil (which was low obviously) and the rest was all gas.. pouring out of my oil pan like water.. Sheesh.. this is turning into small crisis!

i had a similar story when i first put on my 450's on my hatch. this qualifies as a "im a dumbass story" but anyways i finished up and started the car. it was idling pretty rough and i stayed in the car fiddling with the afc trying toget it to idle decently. well it started to smell like gas but i couldnt figure out why. about 10-15minutes later i got the car to idle fine so i turned it of to call it a day and go inside. when i opened the door to get out of the car i steped in a puddle of gas, i just said wTF! is this. i looked underneath and there was a huge puddle of gas beneath the car front to back! one of th seals from the injectors was leaking out and i didt even know it. it was squirting like a water hose! that scared th ---- out of me.
p.s. that vid is strange yO!
