Yesterday I was driving home on SR-201 when I looked at my speedometer and my oil light was on. I have had that light flicker on me when I get low on oil so I gave Ed a little wiggle and the light stayed on. This means 1 of 2 things in an air-cooled bug. 1. You have lost your generator belt or 2. You have lost oil pressure which usually means no oil. I immediately shut off the engine and coasted over to the side of the road. I was hoping to see the generator belt broke but when I opened the deck lid the belt was still on. I then pulled the dipstick and found no oil on it. That was not good. I looked under the car and there was a growing puddle of oil coming out my engine. That was actually good because it meant I still had some oil in the engine when I shut it down. I quickly noticed that an oil stud from my sump plate had worked it's way out of the case and eventually fell out. I figured it was no problem because I carry lots of oil in the trunk so I just needed to plug the hole and limp it home. I went to the trunk and opened it up. I had no oil at all. AARRGG. I then remembered that when I changes the front beam out I pulled everything out of the trunk area to get access to the beam. I never did put it all back in. I called Dixie and told her to bring me a case of oil, an earplug and some paper towels. As I waited for her to arrive I decided a stick would be a better option to plug the hole then an earplug would so I whittled down a stick and jammed it into the hole. Dixie came to my rescue with oil in hand and I filled it up, fired it up and drove home. Ed seemed no more worse for wear except the stick sticking out of his sump plate. Here is a few shots of the stick and my handy side of the road repair on Ed.
