    KEEPING IT COOL IN THE SUMMER HEAT
     
    The summer heat can be cruel to an automobile. The greatest number of breakdowns occur during summer is due to overheating.
    Lack of coolant results in overheating as the engine has nothing to counterbalance the heat. You should check coolant fluid levels in the radiator at least once a week. You should also have your coolant flushed and changed every two years by a trusted mechanic. Remember to never remove the radiator cap until the engine is thoroughly cooled.

    IMPROVE GAS MILEAGE BY REPLACING YOUR AIR FITLER
    Over the winter, your car's air filter can get clogged with salt and other thick debris. A clogged air filter can really lower your fuel efficiency. Replacing a dirty or clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.

    LOOK BEFORE YOU BUY
    Thinking of buying a used car? Check the rubber on the brake pedal. If it’s worn, this can suggest the car has been mostly driven in stop and go city driving. Stone chips on the hood and rear fenders suggest gravel road travel.

    HOW DO YOU MAXIMIZE YOUR VEHICLE FUEL MILEAGE?
    One way is to have your tires checked every 3 months for optimal pressure and wear. Tires loose pressure naturally over time (like a balloon) and need to be inflated regularly. Proper tire pressure improves handling and control, tire durability, reduces excessive wear and provides maximum fuel economy and safety.

    SPRING SHOWERS BRING POTHOLES!
    Spring brings with it a fresh crop of perennial problems: Potholes. Anyone who has had the misfortune of hitting a pothole knows they can damage tires and rims, but potholes can also cause much more serious – even deadly problems. Visible damage such as buckled wheels or lumps in the tire is more obvious. However, hidden problems such as cracked alloys can be just as dangerous. If you hit a pothole, it’s important to check the pressure in your tires regularly over the next few days.

    ANTIFREEZE POISIONING
     
    HOW ARE PETS EXPOSED TO ANTIFREEZE?
     
    Antifreeze is commonly used in car cooling systems and home plumbing systems to help maintain heat during winter months.
    Pets may become exposed to antifreeze if it’s leaking from a car radiator onto a garage floor, driveway or the street. Pets can also gain access to antifreeze should it not be flushed from a home plumbing system or directly from the containers in your garage if they are not stored out of reach.
     
    WHY IS ANTIFREEZE TOXIC TO PETS?
     
    Antifreeze contains ethylene glycol, which is toxic to dogs and cats.
    This sweet-tasting poison is unfortunately appealing to animals and consumption of a very small amount can lead to rapid kidney failure and death within a very short period of time. Immediate veterinary treatment is necessary to prevent the toxin from being absorbed into the pet’s liver.
     
    WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ANTIFREEZE POISONING?
     
    Clinical signs of antifreeze exposure can occur in as little as 30 minutes and as long as 12 hours. Do not wait for symptoms to appear to go to your vet. Instead, if you have any concerns about potential ingestion, visit a vet immediately.
     
    Symptoms include confusion, vomiting, an increase in thirst and urination, depression, lethargy, sores in the pet’s mouth and noticeable bad breath.
     
    Take preventive measures to keep your pets from accidental antifreeze poisoning:
    •Keep antifreeze in sealed containers out of reach of pets.
    •Dispose used antifreeze containers and rags in a garbage can pets can’t access or open.
    •Routinely check your garage floor and driveway for antifreeze leaks or spills. Cat litter is one way to absorb antifreeze leaks – dispose of it immediately after use, in a garbage bag that can be securely sealed.
    •After returning home from a walk, wash your pet’s paws in warm, soapy water in case he was unknowingly exposed to antifreeze while outside.
    •Switch to a pet-safe, propylene glycol based antifreeze. Although not 100% nontoxic, it’s considered less toxic than ethylene glycol based antifreezes.

    TIPS FOR DRIVING IN A SNOW STORM.
    1. If you must drive, clear the snow off of your windshield, windows, mirrors, headlights and brake lights (no one can see covered brake lights!!). Put your four way flashers on so the driver behind you can see you.
     
    2. Make sure your headlights are turned on.
    3. Drive slow! Go well below the speed limit – ice, heavy snow, traffic and poor visibility will require longer following and stopping distances (allow at least 8 to 10 seconds for stopping).
     
    4. NEVER pass Snowplows!
    These vehicles cannot stop or maneuver as well as a compact car can! Do NOT try to pass the snow plow or truck – that could easily cause an accident.
     
    5. Stay in the inside lane (the one furthest away from the curb) on multi-lane roads. Single lane road? Drive closer to the middle of the road. Why? Snow tends to drift and pile up on to the sides of the road.
     
    6. Drive in tire tracks that have already been established.
    7. Don’t changes lanes unless it’s necessary – you could catch a wheel in the heavy snow or an ice patch and lose control.
     
    8. Watch out for black ice. Black ice is common under bridges and overpasses. It’s called black ice because it’s dark and hard to see.
     
    9. If you need to make an emergency stop, don’t pump the brakes if your car has an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). When you release the brake, your car’s brake system will turn off and on.
    TIP: WINTER BRAKING
    Keep firm, steady pressure on the brake to keep the system on and fully-operational. Not sure if your car has ABS? Talk to your car dealer or auto technician.

    KEEPING YOUR COOL DURING THIS DEEP FREEZE
    Be sure you have the proper amount of antifreeze in your vehicle. Antifreeze works to prevent the engine block from freezing. Also, be sure to check your entire cooling system, including hoses, belts, and radiator; to make sure it is functioning properly.

    SURVIVING THE DEEP FREEZE
    Cold temperatures affect cars negatively in many ways. Consider some of the following:
    1. Heaters will delay engine warm-up. Newer autos supply interior heat almost right away, but this, in turn, delays engine warm-up since you’re siphoning off much-needed heat during those vital first few minutes. Waiting 20 minutes before turning on your heater might save some gas, but frankly, I’d rather be warm.
    2. Your engine block will be more vulnerable to cracking due to frozen coolant. Freeze-up protection can be checked with an inexpensive float-ball tester.
    Use the correct coolant type and mix when topping up. Don’t add plain water alone, as it will dilute the mixture and lessen freeze-up protection. Don’t mix regular (green, two-year) antifreeze with long-life (yellow or reddish, five-year) coolant, since it reverts to the shorter lifespan

    ONLY FILL WITH WASHER FLUID
    Don’t add water to the windshield washer reservoir. It won’t clean as well as washer fluid, and it may freeze in cold weather and damage the system. Don’t try to run your windshield washer system once you suspect there’s no more fluid in the tank, or you may damage the washer fluid pump.

    SAVE ON FUEL CONSUMPTION
    The cost of an insurance deductible is more than the cost of winter tires. Winter tires provide better fuel economy and increase the likelihood of avoiding a costly collision. Research shows that using winter tires in the winter and summer tires in the summer reduced fuel consumption by up to 5%.

    DON’T WAIT FOR THE SNOW!!!
    When the leaves begin to drop off the trees and the days start getting shorter, it’s a sign that the winter months will soon be here. It no doubt happens every year – just like everyone else, you wait until the snow hits to put your snow tires on and you’re faced with long line-ups at your local garage OR your tire size is no longer in stock. To avoid the delay, call your service centre in early fall and inquire about the best time to make the switch. At G&C Voisin Automotive we will store your tires for you for a small fee.
