  • My axle boot is torn, why should I replace it?

    Posted on 15, February, 2019

    Your axles have rubber boots on them and over time with any piece of rubber it deteriorates and the boot will crack and tear. When this happens it's time to replace your axle. Unfortunately the boot it's self is not replaceable typically because once the boot is torn dirt and debris can get into the grease causing damage to the internal parts of your axle. It can also cause noise and after a period of time all of the grease will come out and the axle will break. 

    If you have front end noise give us a call or request an appointment online and we will get you back on the road. 

    Happy Adventures,

  • My diesel ran out of fuel. Now what?

    Posted on 13, February, 2019

    It has happened to everyone, you think you're good and the next thing you know you're sitting on the side of the road wondering what to do next. If your vehicle has an diesel engine nd it runs out of fuel it's a bit more complicated than if you drove a vehicle with a gas engine. 

    After putting fuel in it you need to cycle the key 3-6 times holding it in the on position to prime the system. After that it should start. If it's older than a 1995 it's a bit more complicated.

    If you have questions or need your diesel serviced or repaired, give us a call 541-791-2886 or request an appointment online at www.jhautomotiveinc.com/appointments
