Never Try And Use WD-40 As Engine Oil



WD-40 can fix a lot of things, right? Well, some wise kids decided to see if it really could fix everything. They got the WD-40 and what they wanted to fix, they just had to try it.

They wanted to try and start an engine with just WD-40. Surely it would work, right? That’s at least what they thought. Here’s what happened.

Don’t Do This

They actually put a lot of thought into this. They drained the car of all of its engine oil and proceeded to fill it up with WD-40 that they got from Home Depot.

This is something that should not be tried at home! Even if it does vaguely say “engines” on the can.

The Results

The car actually started and drove! But their celebration was premature when they smelt smoke after 5 miles of driving. They had to stop because the smoke was now blocking the windshield.

But no one expected the next event. The entire engine caught flames in a spectacular fireball! The teens knew the truth now, but did they run? No! They excitedly filmed the fire and posted it online. Teens will always be teens, after all.
