Saved an engine? As in you heard, felt, or had a Zen like feeling something just wasn't not right and shut it down before there was a catastrophic engine failure.

Or are you like me and keep running the sh!t out of it till it blows up good so you can find the problem without a dought?

I once had a premonition that a friend of mine was about to go for a wild ride while jumping waves from a large SeaRay.....

On the serious side, I really think i can feel when a drive is about to let loose. Ive kinda broken alot of them in the past year or so.....
