-- Most of the country is experiencing very warm weather. The hot weather not only takes a toll on us, but also our cars. There are some things you can do to get your car through the dog days of summer whether you are driving a husky old waggin or a tricked out vet.
If your engine has a tendency to paws, growl is whining or running ruff, one of your spark plugs might be going a stray. If you have not replaced them in awhile, do so. If your air conditioner is barely panting, check the compressor. If it is barking, it is trying to speak to you about replacing it.
Next, check the pointer on your temperature gauge. If it is hot, look under the hood to see if any fluids are drooling from your coolant system. Also, check to see if the belts are chewed up. If so, fix the problem. Otherwise, you might have to go for a long walk to fetch some water.
Now, check your brakes and brake pads for signs of wear. Faulty brakes or ones that stick could cause your car to roll over and play dead. Also, Make sure you give your car a bath weekly to get the dirt and debris off. And, giving it a good smooth coat of wax will protect it from the suns harsh rays.
If you take care of your car it will treat you like a champion and take care of you fur a long time. Otherwise, it might bite you in the end. If so, you will be in the dog house and have to take a greyhound to work.
If your car will no longer keep you the leader of the pack, do not send it to the bone yard. Cars4Charities will be happy to adopt it. Donating your pooch is much better than trying to sell it because Cars4Charities will not hound you and they will not try to fleas you. They will fetch it for free and, you will not be biting your nails waiting for them to show. You, also, will not be ticked by the tax deduction you will get as your reward. To donate your mutt, just give them a yelp at 1-800-448-3487 or sit at your computer and go to http://www.cars4charities.org/
