Take your car to your serv- ice station and ask the at- tendant to give your car "Tune-Up No. 2" and heql probably look at you and wonder. A tune-up he knows; a tune-up No. 2, probably not. Yet, it's a needed service, one that's longer overdue in most cars. Tune-Up No. 2 is simply a thorough inspection and check of all the components making up a car's cooling system, plus replacement of worn or malfunctioning parts. Why is it important? Con- sider this. The cooling sys- tem of your car performs a vital function, that of keep- ing the operating tempera- ture of the engine at a level at which it will perform at top efficiency. Maintaining Its Cool To accomplish this objec- tive, automotive engineers developed the pressurized cooling system which per- mits coolant to rise well above the ordinary boiling point without "boiling over." The cooling system on the average modern engines must be able to withstand in ex- cess of 17 pounds of pressure combined with underhood temperatures that range from 224 to 278F. These higher heats and pressures put a strain on all components of the cooling system: hoses, V-belts, water pump, thermostat, radiator caps. It takes only one defective or nonoperative part to cause the engine to overheat with costly internal engine dam- age the likely end result. If you are driving a late model car and it's been over a year since you've had your cooling system checked, you're overdue for trouble. And you're ready for a cool- ing system tune-up, or Tune- Up No. 2. Well Worth the Cost The cost is relatively small compared to the potential savings in forestalling expen- sive emergency service or re- pairs. lea~s or exe~'t~e o'~I eout~nt. 2.

That's not how Poor Richard stated the case, but Poor Richard lived in an era before the automobile. If Destitute Dick had been a car owner he probably would have applied another of his famous sayings to the situation- "A stitch in time saves nine." While most of us today are more careful than ever about how we shell out our money, neglecting needed car mainte- nance is a false saving. Let's look at the facts. Most of us depend upon our cars for our livelihoods. Cars take 82 percent of us to work and back. Most of us seek out recreation by automobile, with 86 percent of all travelers using automobiles. Most Important for Season So, particularly in the coming months of winter weather, it is important to keep your car in top running condition, whether we're going to work or play. How, exactly, does stinting on maintenance lead to poten- tially major expenditures? Consider these examples: Merely washing and waxing your car to keep its body rmt-free can mean a savings of several hundred dollars at trade-in time. Changing the oil and filter at recommended times can prevent premature and expensive engine wear. Regular tune-ups can cut gasoline bills, prevent road service bills and, in some cases, head off engine damage. Wheel alignments, rotating and balancing tires can make your tires last 25 percent longer. General car care makes your car safer and helps prevent accidents. Some estimates state that 10 percent of ad fatal accidents can be attributed to neglect of maintenance. Today, there are even stronger reasons for good car care A well-maintained engine, tuned to manufacturer's speciliea. tions, pollutes significantly less than a neglected one. Ever with pollution-reducing improvements on the new cars, main- tenance is the key to keeping pollution levels low. Best Car Expenditure of W'mter Your investment in keeping your car in condition may be the best expenditure you make this season. Visit your favorite service outlet soon to begin reaping the rewards of that investment--safer, surer performance from your car. College Tests Show... More than one-third of all automobiles checked in a re- cent study conducted by Northwestern University had one or more tires in unsafe operating condition. Common faults in- cluded under-inflation, overloading, excessive tread wear or damage.

Cold-weather sporting opportunities have turned former winter-time hiber- nators into outdoor enthusiasts. Even though motoring to winter resorts may be more rigorous, a car that's kept in good condition will get you there every time. (Photo courtesy of Johnson Motors.) I Avoid Battery ] Problems Ever wonder why some- times during starting, your car's battery sounds like It's dying--then suddenly kicks off? A major source of the prob- lem could be dirty battery terminals or loose connec- tions. Open the hood of your ear. Are the battery terminals covered with what looks like a green moss? If not, are they loose? The green substance is acid build-up. When It reaches a saturation point of covering the lead terminals, energy transmission is im- paired and starting becomes a problem.
