Update and summary from other threads.

Compy crashed and I needed to reinstall Windows and my programs. I still haven't checked the list of programs that were removed to see what else I am missing before I save an image of my hard drive.
I lost a crown, the tire blew on my Camry, and my car fell off the jack, and I started smelling something burning.

This confused me after I bought new tires.

When I checked my fluids before driving to see my girlfriend yesterday I noticed oil all over the top. I wiped it down and tightened the oil fill cap, but when I checked before driving back it was in the same condition, except the cap was still tight.

I stopped in Payson for a burrito and the oil was low, but still above the bottom line. I wiped the oil again and drove home.

I was supposed to have 3 teleclients today, but the first mom didn't respond and the second was allegedly asleep. I sprayed my carwash solution over the oily parts of my Camry--including the hood insulation and after my client I attached an old hose from the backyard to the front hose, which at least I had put in the garage, and hosed off everything with a pressure nozzle.

I also changed into a swimsuit, climbed under my Accord, and sprayed off the carwash solution I squirted there.

It isn't supposed to get below freezing until Wednesday.

So far people think the valve cover is leaking--and the belt flung oil all over the engine bay.
