Default Found a baby compressor!!

Didn't know I had a compressor until I was working on the car the other day and the stupid thing kept kicking on and off. It'* a cute little miniature right by the washer fluid reservoir. What gives?

Sorry. Couldn't help myself. Don't forget to turn the inflator OFF when you're done

hmm, can the inflator de-flate the battery in the 10 minutes before it automatically shuts off?

Mine runs a bout 5 minutes after I turn the car off. I have an Interstate battery and have never had a problem with the battery running down.

:P I always thought that thing was in the trunk, not the engine bay, heheh. Never noticed it until I was looking at something and it went off, thought it was a snake at first...

Do the air compressors ever need to have oil added?
