My oil pressure gauge stopped working

Your oil pressure could have dropped out due to an issue with your oil pump. If your oil pump is not pumping enough oil out of your oil pan into your engine then it can cause engine failure. Your oil is the lifeblood of your engine and if it doesn't have it then it won't run. This can be tested by putting a mechanical gauge on your engine to test how much oil pressure you have. If your oil can light comes on while you're driving then you should pull over as soon as it is safe and turn off your engine.  Give us a call to set up your appointment and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures,  Heather

Why does my oil smell burnt?

If your engine gets hotter than it should it can "cook" your oil causing it to smell burnt. This typically only happens when your engine get much hotter than it should. If this happens you need to have your oil changed as soon as possible and to have your cooling system checked to see if it is functioning properly.  Give us a call at 541-791-2886 and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures, Heather
