    Why in the world would you go WOT when stuck in the snow? Are you sure it wasn't your tires burning up?

    Block half seals spit out oil at higher revs if they're on their way out. Don't spin until you're un-stuck- you'll ruin a few things, transmission being #1. save yourself some money and problems and get some help from a 4x4 and a tow rope.

    If nothing else give it a nice break between short burst of trying to spin to freedom. Older non-electronic vehicles seemed to like careful "rocking" to get out of a hole- but electronic transmissions don't shift fast enough to do this.
