Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE 4 Thorough inspection will prevent problems Take your oar to your ser- vice station and ask the atten- dant to give your car "Tune-Up No. 2" and he'E 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 components making up a car's cooling system, plus re- placements of worn or malfunc- tioning parts. Why is it important? Con- sider this. The cooling system of your car performs a vital function, that of keeping the op- erating temperature of the en- gine at a level at which it will perform at top efficiency. To accomplish this objective, automotive engineers develop- ed the pressurized cooling sys- tem wliich permits coolant to rise well above the ordinary boiling point without "boiling over." The cooling system on the average modem engines must be able to withstand in excess of 17 pounds of pressure combined with underflow! tem- peratures thai range from 224 degrees to 278 degrees F. 21 key checks 1. A visual check of coolant level for indication of leaks or excessive oil content. 2. Check with pressure tester for internal and external leaks. 3. Visual check of oil for wa- ter content. 4. Test thermostat for proper opening and closing. 5. Check of healer valves. fi. Check heat gauge for ac- curacy. Dirl always car's enemy Dirt can be an enemy of good car operation in more ways than appearance. SmaE particles of dirt on the battery terminals can stop your car cold. To prevent this from hap- pening, make sure battery ter- minals and connections are cleaned thoroughly during rou- tine battery checks. CLOGGED CLEANER A dogged air cleaner can help cause a 75 per cent in- crease in hydrocarbon emis- sions from a car's engine. 7. Drain and back flush cool- ing system. 8. Clean radiator core of bugs and check for clogging. 9. Clean engine if heavily covered with grease and oil. 10. Test radiator pressure cap. 11. Check radiator neck cap seat for nicks or scratches that could release pressure. 12. Check water pump bear- ings. 13. Check fan blades and pul- ley for alignment and balance. !4. Inspect all hose and clamps for deterioration. 15. Check core plugs and drain cocks for leakage. 16. Refill system with cool- ant and check for airlocks. 17. Recheck entire system for leaks. 18. Check and adjust tension of V-belts. 19. Check and reset ignition timing to eliminate ping. 20. In cases where cooling system continues to overheat, check other possible causes. 21. Replace belts, hose, clamps, thermostat and cap as necessary.

It lakes only one defective or nonoperalive part to cause the engine to overheat with costly internal engine damage 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 cooling system tune-up, or Tune-Up No. 2. The cost is relatively small compared to the potential sav- ings in forestalling expensive emergency service or repairs. A Tune-Up No. 2. normally takes only about an hour and a half and carries a nominal flat rate of plus parts.

To gel there, finalists had to master a series of elimination competitions involving more than rallyists and cars. The final runoffs are sponsored by the Lincoln-Mercury Division, Ford Motor Company.
