Jan. 14, 2021—The Chevrolet Tahoe in a video shared on Reddit has a bit of an engine contamination problem.

Techs couldn't help but cringe when they pulled the drain plug and a disgusting brown liquid spilled out. The good people over at Motor1 reached out to the technician who posted the video to learn more about the situation.

The owner of the vehicle had overheating issues, and the engine eventually stalled. The intake gaskets had failed, and the overheating got so bad that the engine block cracked.

Check out the video, as well as photos, over at Motor1.
