Run the Air Conditioner Year-Round
If you live in a cold weather climate, you’re probably wondering why it’s advisable to periodically run your air conditioner in the winter. There are actually two reasons for this. It keeps the compressor from seizing up and the seals soft by circulating the refrigerant.
Replace Brake Fluid
Replacing the brake fluid in your car is both easy and affordable. It’s recommended that you change it at least once a year. Failure to do so means running the risk of corroded car parts and eventual vehicle failure. Why? Brake fluid actually collects moisture. The excess moisture is what causes corrosion.
Clean the Battery Posts
Reduce the possibility of a car that won’t start simply by cleaning the battery posts, once in a while. It’s probably not as difficult as you imagine.
Remove the cables from the battery. ALWAYS remove the negative cables first. A solution of baking soda and water, along with a wire brush, typically removes any visible corrosion with minimal effort. Next, rinse posts with water and dry with a clean cloth. When the task is complete re-attach the cables…. positive, first.
