Before heading out on a road trip I always give the car the once over; checking oil, tire pressures etc. I had discovered a leaky oil pan gasket the week prior so decided to replace it before we left. Due to workload etc I wasn't able to make the repairs until the Thursday evening prior to our Friday morning departure.
Dropped the oil pan after a bit a fuss, put the new gasket in place and buttoned everything up at about 11pm. Took the car out for a test drive and everything seems good so I parked the car and went to bed.
