Don’t get caught in the cold this winter with a failing Car Battery. The Gresham Quick Lane has you covered with a Car Battery Sale that won’t break the bank.
How to tell if your Car Battery is Failing
You should think about replacing your car battery if:
- Your engine is slow to start and sluggishly cranks when you turn the key over.
- If your check engine light illuminates, it may be your battery
- If your car battery appears swollen or bloated
- If your car battery is really old
If you are already stuck with a car that won’t start, here are a few signs it may be your battery
- Your engine cranks but refuses to actually start
- Or if there is no crank, no lights and it refuses to start
- If you’ve already jumped it multiple times
If your car started fine yesterday and now there is no sign of life, here are a few things you can easily check yourself.
- Check your battery cables and posts.
- Are they secure? There should be no wiggle room.
- Are your cables frayed or falling apart?
- Is there a bunch of gunk on the terminals?
Any of these can be the culprit keeping you from getting on your way. No worries.

If you don’t own Snow Tires and are asking yourself
“Do I really need Snow Tires?”
here are some things to consider.
Snow Tires are usually recommended when you drive in snow, ice, or freezing rain conditions. If you shelter in place with the Oregon Winter storms then you most likely will not need snow tires. However, if you need to make the trek into work no matter what the weather, you will most likely want snow tires to help keep you and your family safe this winter.
The Oregonian recently reported that we should expect an encore performance of last year’s winter experience. The American Meteorological Society is estimating five snow events for the Portland Metro area this Winter with accumulation. If you’re looking for someone to blame, her name is La Nina. Her cold ocean temperatures create lower than usual low land temperatures providing the uncharacteristically messy winter we had last year.
The good news is that Skiers and Snowboards will enjoy a season full of the white stuff.
If you still have questions about your Snow Tire options please reach out to one of the Gresham Quick Lane Service Advisers at 503-489-1621 or stop by 1999 East Powell Blvd. Gresham OR 97080.

You car is one of your largest investments and regularly getting a Oil Change is vitally important to its health.
Oil Change FAQs
When To Change Your Oil
When you first purchase your vehicle, it’s a good idea to review the owners manual and pay special attention to the recommended maintenance schedule for your specific vehicle. If you car didn’t come with a manual, don’t fret. Almost all manufacturer post their recommended maintenance schedules online. With newer vehicles many cars, trucks and SUVs can go as long as 5,000 or 7,500 miles between oil changes. If you have an electric or bi-fuel vehicle it may even be 10,000 between service visits. With the significantly reduced frequency of oil change maintenance, it is even more important now to get your vehicle inspected at each oil change. If you have lost track of the time since your last oil change we suggest going sooner than later. Here are Five Signs You Should Change Your Oil:
- The Oil is dark and gritty – When you check your oil level and white it on a towel; what does your oil look like?
- Your Car is Louder than it used to be – Oil is vital to your engine running smoothly by providing the lubricant that allows the parts to glide. Without clean oil those parts scrape, grind, rub and generally cause premature wear and damage.
- If You Can’t Remember the Last Oil Change – Even if you fuel level is good, the oil you do have may not be lubricating your engine properly. If you can’t remember the last time it was changed, it most likely needs to be changed now.
- Your Check Engine Light is On – Many newer cars have a specific oil light that will go on but for older vehicles the engine light will come on to indicate your engine lubricant really needs attention. A first step would be to check your oil level.
- Your Oil Level Keeps Dropping – Engines will gradually eat up engine oil but drastic or fast reductions that increase in volume over time are a sign of a larger problem. When you oil level is low remember to check color and consistency as well. You oil may need to be replaced instead of refilled.
Will an Oil Change Help My Gas Mileage?
If you can’t remember the last time you changed your oil and it appears to be clumpy and dirty, it is most definitely harming your fuel economy. In order for your engine to work efficiently and provide the best gas mileage possible, your oil needs to be free from particulates and maintain the correct viscosity. The cushion from the oil helps to ensure that your engine isn’t rubbing metal on metal and reducing its efficiency and the overall life of your vehicle.
What is the difference between regular oil and synthetic oil?
Both types of oil begin their lives as crude oil. Conventional motor oil was developed to provide lubrication at high temperatures in order to protect your car and provide optimal engine performance. Synthetic motor oil is modified and developed beyond the aspects of convention motor oil. Many synthetic oils have been scientifically developed to maintain their viscosity longer and better than conventional oils. One of the advantages to synthetic oil is that it doesn’t breakdown as fast as conventional oils so you can wait longer between oil changes without harming your vehicle.
