LOL!

This is like going to the doctor and telling him, "I don't feel good." and expecting him to cure you.

Amazing...

He may have had to run out and fill the oil.

He may be a newbie and hit the send button before he was done. Then gave up.

That'll happen when you fill the diesel fuel tank with engine oil, and the crankcase with diesel! It will also take a bit of cranking to start, and will smoke like crazy!
