Unhappy

Given that most of us will be gone or really old in 20 years, I'd eliminate the good cars ( the Vette, Charger and the Mustang). That would leave the next generation of gear heads wanting the Hybred. So sad!

Default Trivia Question

My apologies. I have just been rather busy the last week or so. Here are the answers to the last quiz.

Answers to Cooling System Quiz:

1. (C) is correct, although a 50/50 solution is adequate for most climates, protecting to -34o F. Never use pure antifreeze.
2. (A) is correct. As stated above, a faulty thermostat, causing an engine to run too hot or too cold, can damage the engine. 3. (B) is correct. And when replacing the cap, be sure to install the right one for your vehicle. Pressure recommendations vary.
4. Because all three functions are dependent upon the drive belt (or belts) all three answers are correct.
5. (C) is correct.

Quiz provided by the CarCare Council.
