The cause of common Winter motoring troubles in t Only the weather. It s also the neglect of key electrical and Cooling system components. The Survey results identified the automotive components and services most overlooked by the average car owners eight of the neglected items in the top ten have a definite bearing on poor cold weather performance ranking in order the to most overlooked items Are 1 Battery cables 2 spark plug wires 3 Radiator hoses 4 Radiator pressure Cap 5 transmission service 0 Shock absorbers 7. Heater hoses 8 headlight aiming 9 fan belts 10 Battery cold weather strikes operating at of per cent Power at the freezing Mark Battery cables when corroded or otherwise defective. Virtually can Cut off All electrical flow deteriorated spark plug wires also can be responsible for starting failure. Acc recommends that Battery fluid Levels be checked every time you Stop for gasoline and that the Battery and its cables be inspected As part of a Lune up spark plug cables also should be checked during the annual tune up neglect of Cooling system components such As hoses Radiator pressure Cap and fan belts can Lead to a breakdown these As Well As other Cooling system components should be checked every fall and Spring since wintertime has More hours of darkness it is increasingly important that headlights be aimed properly misaligned headlights not Only reduce visibility but pose a safety danger to Drivers in on coming cars. Lights should be checked every six months. According to acc the Battery Battery Hies and spark plug wires have a finite bearing on starting failures.

So you bought a be car wan emission controls on ii. Now your minds at ease about excessive emissions. Well it should t be. Hmm include studies conducted by Olson laboratories show that acceptable emission performance for most cars can be achieved and sustained Only by proper maintenance and repair. The study showed that Only those tune ups performed to reduce exhaust emissions Are effective. Crankcase devices a have a qualified service specialist using an Infra red exhaust analyser test the device for satisfactory operation with the engine warm and at Idle condition. B have the device cleaned serviced or replaced according to the analyser Reading and manufacturer s recommended instructions. Olson reported that High emissions can he lowered in most cases with engine adjustments and tune ups performed by a qualified service technician. The results of the studies summarized in the Olson report suggested first that the incorporation of emission controls on cars does not assure continued Low emissions because the control systems tend to deteriorate in their performance second with proper maintenance and adjustments vehicles will continue to operate with lower emission Levels. Olson recommends the use of Infra red exhaust analyser equipment by qualified service personnel in order that accurate inspection can he performed a and for determining corrective adjustments service or replacement. This Type of equipment measures the hydrocarbon and Carbon monoxide emissions produced by car engines and provides other information about their performance and Economy. Various ignition system malfunctions which can he detected with this Type of equipment will usually increase undesirable emissions and reduce performance and Economy. The appropriate inspection and exhaust emission control system a have a qualified service attendant Check All installation connections to the air pump hoses valves and air distribution manifolds while the engine is stopped b with the engine at a Normal operating temperature have the attendant Check and or adjust ignition timing Idle mixture and Idle Speed according to the analyser readings and to manufacturer s specification. Additional procedures for a uncontrolled vehicles Quot a have the service specialist measure Idle rpm and adjust if necessary to a Speed no slower than manufacturer s specifications b have the service specialist measure ignition timing and Point dwell adjust if necessary to manufacturer s specifications c.
