    TIPS TO GET THE SAND OUT
     
    There is nothing like a day at the beach. Hot sun, cold beverages, warm sand and that refreshing dip in the cool water. However, one thing most folks can do without is all the sand that’s left behind in the car after a day at the beach. It gets everywhere – in places you didn’t even know existed! Even after you clean out the car, sand can be ever present. Here are some tips to get sand out of your car this summer.
    1. SHAKE ITOUT - Vigorously shake out all towels and/or beach blankets.
    Chairs Rule. Opt for sitting in a chair as opposed to lying on a towel in the sand. This will help keep the sand count down.
    2. RINSE AND REPEAT - Rinse off all beach toys and store in mesh bag. Dip the bottom of the cooler off in the water before putting it in your car.
    3. DON’T FORGET TO BRUSH - An old, large makeup brush can help get sand off your feet and hands before you jump in the car to head home.
    4. CORN STARCH - Rub corn starch on your hands and feet to remove excess sand.
    5. COVER IT UP - Put an old sheet or blanket in the backseat AND trunk of your car. This will help collect sand that falls during the transport back home. Carefully remove the sheet/blanket once you’ve unpacked the car.
     
    At this time of year washing your car is essential, especially if you have been to the beach. It’s really important to hose under the carriage and wheels to blast the sand out.

    DON’T FILL UP IF YOU SEE THE TANKER
    If you happen to see a gasoline tanker filling the tanks at your local gas station, come back another day or go to a different station. As the station’s underground tanks are being filled, the turbulence can stir up sediment. Sediment in your gas can clog fuel filters and fuel injectors, causing poor performance and possibly demanding repairs.

    WHAT TO DO IF YOUR KEY IS STUCK IN THE IGNITION
     
    If you find your key does not turn in the ignition, your steering lock could be tight up against the switch preventing the key from turning.
    To get a stuck key out of the ignition, first make sure the car is off and in park or in neutral. Try wiggling the steering wheel left and right and turning. This will help you turn the key.

    PREPARING YOUR VEHICLE FOR A SUMMER ROAD TRIP
    When the long hot summer months hit, road trips are a great way to explore a new area of the country or a fun way to seek out new adventures. Before you set off on any longer trip, it’s always a good idea to prep your car for so you don’t run into any problems on the road.
     
    Here are some tips to get your car in tip-top shape for a long drive:
    1. REVIEW YOUR RUBBER:
    Have a look at your tire pressure and make sure it matches up with the guidelines set out in your owner’s manual. Check the wheels for any bulges or cracks and examine the condition of the tire tread.
     
    2. TEST OUT THE LIGHTS:
    Are your headlights, blinkers, brake lights, hazard lights and reverse lights all in working order? Are any of the lights cracked or burnt out?
     
    3. BRAKE TIME:
    Listen carefully to your brakes to spot any squeaking or scraping sounds. Is there a burning smell or do your pedals go all the way to the floor? This probably means it’s time to replace the brake pads and give the area a good check-up.
     
    4. CHECK THE A/C:
    If you've ever lost your air conditioning on a hot summer day, then you know what a big difference a little cool air makes. The best way to tell if your air conditioner has a problem is if it can't generate or maintain air temperatures that 10 degrees Celsius below the ambient outside air temperature.
     
    5. RENEW ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS:
    Review the expiration date on your license plate sticker, on your insurance, your passport and on your driver’s license. You might also want to look into a CAA membership or travel insurance so you know you’re covered out on the road.

    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.

    SUMMER HEAT CAN BE HARD ON YOUR BATTERY
     
    Wintertime is notorious for dead batteries and early morning jumpstarts. But the truth is that hot weather is even tougher on your battery.
    Summer heat can speed up the chemical reaction inside a battery, causing the battery to be overcharged. This can dramatically shorten the lifespan of your battery. Heat can also damage the battery by evaporating internal battery fluid
    The best way to keep your battery running smoothly is to keep it clean. A dirty battery can actually cause the current to drain. Regularly detach the battery cables and wipe off the terminals. Make sure the battery is strapped down tightly and that all connections are secure.

    DID YOU KNOW…
    You do NOT have to return to the original dealership to have your new car serviced in order to keep your warranty valid. Many dealerships give the public the false impression when buying a new vehicle, they must return to have all the regular oil changes and maintenance done at the dealership in order for the warranty to remain in force. This is not true, as long as the maintenance is done and documented; you have the final decision where your vehicle is serviced.

    CAR CARE TIP OF THE WEEK
     
    From Greg Voisin – owner
     
    Your dad knew that frequent oil changes were the key to keeping his Chrysler on the road another year. While owner’s manuals for today’s cars recommend longer intervals between oil changes, the fact remains — frequent changes flush abrasive dirt and metal particles out of the engine, prolonging its life. Most owners’ manuals recommend a more frequent interval for “severe conditions.” To maximize the life of your engine, follow the severe intervals recommendations, especially if you drive in stop-and-go traffic

    CAR CARE TIP OF THE WEEK
    From Greg Voisin
     
    EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR POWER STEERING PUMP
     
    When turning your steering wheel, don’t hold it to the extreme right or left position for more than a few seconds. Doing so can damage the power-steering pump.

    CAR CARE TIP OF THE WEEK.
     
    Now that the weather is warming up, do you notice odd smells coming from the air conditioning in your car?
    As your car becomes older, or when the air conditioning system is used infrequently, bacteria, micro-organisms, mold and fungi may start growing, just behind the dash panel on the evaporator causing some very unpleasant odors. This can cause allergic reactions, coughing and sneezing.
    This problem can be solved by using an anti-bacterial treatment that destroys the bacteria growth and leaves your car smelling fresh again. You can do this yourself by spraying the treatment in the fresh air intake vent while the a/c fan is on high.

    IF YOU HAVEN’T DONE SO YET, IT’S TIME TO REMOVE YOUR WINTER TIRES.
     
    It’s been a long winter, but spring is finally here. This is a good time to get your car back into shape after a tough winter of frigid temperatures, snow, ice, and now potholes.
     
    Some people delay or don't bother removing their winter tires. While winter tires offer impressive traction on snow and ice, they often compromise stopping performance on dry and wet roads, don't handle as well as all-season tires, and wear out quickly. If you have your winter tires on dedicated wheels, be sure to wash the tires and wheels thoroughly to remove winter salt spray that can cause wheel corrosion and store them in a cool, dry place.

    RUN YOUR AC IN WINTER
    To keep your car’s air-conditioning system fit for the next warm season, run it a few times throughout the winter. This will prevent moving parts in the compressor from seizing. Also, circulating the refrigerant will help keep the seals soft and pliable.

    INSPECT YOUR CAR’S WHEEL WELL AND SPLASHGUARDS
    These guards, however flimsy on many of today’s cars, help keep water and winter’s salty slush from splashing up into the engine compartment, where it can damage sensitive electrical components. Unfortunately, these guards tear off easily — sometimes without you knowing it. Check for damage to these guards when you wash your car. Re-secure or replace as needed.

    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.

    ANTIFREEZE POISONING IN PETS
    Antifreeze poisoning is one of the most common forms of poisoning in small animals, and this is because it is so commonly found in households. Antifreeze poisoning typically happens when antifreeze drips from a car’s radiator, where it is licked off the ground and ingested by a pet.
     
    SYMPTOMS:
    Some common signs of antifreeze poisoning in dogs and cats include:
    •Drunken behavior
    •Euphoria/Delirium
    •Wobbly, uncoordinated movement
    •Nausea/Vomiting
    •Excessive urination
    •Diarrhea
    •Rapid heart beat
    •Depression
    •Weakness
    •Seizures/Convulsions/Shaking tremors
    •Fainting
    •Coma
     
    PREVENTION
    Antifreeze poisoning can be easily avoided by following a few simple precautions:
     
    1. Keep antifreeze containers tightly closed and stored out of the reach of pets.
    2. Take care not to spill antifreeze, and if it is spilled, ensure that it is immediately and thoroughly cleaned up.
    3. Dispose of used antifreeze containers properly.
    4. Check the radiator of your car regularly, and repair leaks immediately.
    5. Do not allow your dog to wander unattended where there is access to antifreeze (e.g., roads, gutters, garages, and driveways).
    6. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has labeled propylene glycol safe and it is now used for antifreeze. Look for antifreeze with this ingredient instead, to keep your pet safer from accidental poisoning

    TIP TO SAVE FUEL IN THE WINTER
     
    Fill up your car early in the morning. When the outdoor temperature is colder, the density of gasoline or diesel is greater and it takes up less space in your tank. During the day as the atmosphere warms, the fuel in the tank expands and becomes less dense. Due to this, if you fill in the afternoon or evening, your liter is not equivalent to an exact liter anymore. The change in fuel density decreases the amount of energy in each unit of fuel. Gasoline expands 1% for every 15 degrees Fahrenheit and diesel expands 0.6%.
    Make sure that the gas tank cap is secured properly. Evaporation of fuel can occur faster if the cap is not aligned and secured properly.
