FRIDAY FACTS!

Here are some reasons to buy American:

1. Every 16 ships that deliver China products, produce more pollution than all the cars in the world.

2. China's air pollution is 2,000 times more than America.

3. China's workers are grossly abused with working conditions and pay, living in rooms of 8 to 10 above the factory. Thousands of suicides occure monthly due to overworking and abuse.

4. China manipulates currency hurting our dollar giving them an unfair advantage.

5. Chinese companies under bid jobs and then sub contract it to another company, building inferior quality product. They have to press for faster production to make money.

Enjoy your memorial day weekend, friends!

Tuesday Q&A

Q: I was changing my transmission fluid an I noticed that the torque converter was painted blue, does that mean my transmission has been rebuilt or replaced at some point?

A: Correct! Torque converters are unpainted from the factory. A painted torque converter generally indicates (but does not prove) a rebuild.

We've all seen cars we enjoyed go out of production but they'll never be completely gone, thanks both to people who collect them and to the ones who wrote, sang and recorded songs about them -- or even took their names.

Starting today and going through Friday we are going to have some trivia. Do you have the correct answers to NAME THAT CAR?

Question #1: In this 1905 hit, Johnnie Steele proposes that girlfriend Lucille come away with him -- and "go as far as you like with me" -- in his what?

(HINT: This "Merry" automobile was the only U.S. make manufactured in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

Answer will be posted tomorrow.

BE SYSTEM SMART! Think I-60 & I-90

Combine belts and tensioners, water pumps and hoses, and use timing component kits for a complete system repair. When components wear, they put the entire system at risk. Start inspecting the serpentine, cooling and timing systems at 60K miles, and replace worn components by 90K miles or as advised by the manufacturer.

** Tips & Tricks **

Pigs Squeal...
...Belts Don't.

That squeal from under the hood is the belt, but blame the tensioner. Lack of tension means belt slip. Belt slip causes squeal.

So the next time you hear a belt squeal, think tensioner.
