I know the feeliing exactly. Broke an oil line four years ago on a brand new engine. Saw oil gauuge fluctuate as I went into a turn. Immediately stopped even before the alarm went off. Of course the leak was straight up and hitting the hatch and spraying all over. At least it was a cheap fix

The Alarm senders are notorious for rotting out, especially when they're near the bottom of the block where water collects. It used to be even worse when they had a rubber boot around the sender. All the water/salt would get stuck under the boot and really do a number on it. Salt water use, times it by two.

When I saw "Dogded a bullet" I assumed you were writing to say that some other guy was going to marry her because he thought the kid was his.
