Wow Ben what bad luck.  Keep up posted on the insurance as I hadn't actually thought of something like that being covered.  Bummer about the idiot light, I'd fix that for next time.

I didn't think anything of it 'cause I was able to miss it.... or so i thought. 5 miles later I hear a familiar "knock knock" from the engine. I baby it the last mile to work and find the piece of rebar in my oil cooler...wedged perfectly in the plates and knicked a cross tube just enough to cause problems. The dummy oil light never came on. > > Here we go again! > > The only redeeming thing about this, is that I was smart enough to get the equivalent of full coverage insurance when I reinstated my policy Monday morning. Hopefully they will cover road debris.
