I was coming out of the flying j after eating dinner and I held the door for a driver with a bunch of stuff in his hand. And he said if you have to be here I would get out.So of course curious why so I asked and he said that they were expecting 23 inches of snow between 2 and 3 am. But we have a delivery tonight at 9 and have to go the shop in West Valley to have them look at a oil smell coming into the cab. I think it might be a loose oil filter. He just had the oil changed the day before he picked me up on the 30 of December. Be safe out there everyone.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Could also just be some overflow that's getting onto the hot engine and components. Any tell-tale drips underneath when you're parked for awhile?

Windshield has to be replaced first and the guy who is coming from some 2 hours away. Then they will see about the oil leak at the oil pan. But my mentor is a lease op so he might let it go. He doesn't talk unless I ask questions. He has his beak in his phone almost 24 hours a day.

Very frustrating.

That is why I am not a fan of lease drivers training, seems a lot of lease ops are more interested in extra money rather than training. Not that it doesn't happen with company drives as well.

I agree with that completely.

That sounds super frustrating (and kinda dangerous?); sorry to hear that, Raptor. Are you now getting some valuable time behind the wheel? Hope that part is going well. Stay safe out there! =)
