    Decided to link this in case anyone wants/needs it. Seems to be exactly the same content that those online repair manual places are selling (probably illegal/grey area for them to sell it as well). I think they just upload someones print screen of the manuals and sell them. So instead of...

    I just had a sump replace done after I cracked mine. The oil light is staying on. The "mechanic" who did the job was rough as anything and I am concerned he may have done some damage. He is suggesting that there is a lack of oil pressure as a result of the car sitting without oil for a couple of...
