    One of the most visible parts of a car is its instrumentation. Most drivers are aware of the speedometer and fuel gauge, but other dashboard instruments are equally important. A tachometer, which displays engine speed in rotations per minute (RPM), indicates how hard the engine is working. An oil pressure gauge or engine temperature gauge can be useful in diagnosing common problems, such as a leak of oil or engine coolant respectively. Stopping a car when oil pressure begins to drop or temperature begins to rise can avoid catastrophic engine failure.
