Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ADVICE DRIVE... from BKNSON... a woman who does PAGE 5 DEAR DEDE: I am the mother of three school-age children and it seems like I spend hall my time chauffeuring Uiem lo school, music lessons, Scouls and a dozen oilier places. My neighbor has children about the same age and we try to share the driving when the youngsters are going to the same place. Lately, however, it seems that every time it's her turn to drive she claims she has starting trouble. I don't be- lieve her. We live in a warm climate so I don't sec how she has starting trouble. How can I get across to her that I resent her excuses with- out starting an unwanted neigh- borhood feud? Disgusted Doris Long Beach, California DEAR DORIS: Before getting to the core of your problem, don't assume that because you live in a warm climate you can't have starting problems. Statistics show that drivers in your part of the country have just as much or more starting trouble than car owners in colder areas. Why? People in the frigid zones tune their cars more faithfully than people in your baftiwick. Tell your neighbor that you just hed your car tuned and that it really runs better and that you start more easily than ever. Also tell her that yo'jr tune-up is helping cut pollution levels. She may just get the hint and you'll gain a co-pilot on your driving chores. DEAR DEDE: I'm a single girl, just out of college and I've bought my first car. Frark'y, every time I take it in for service, I feel I am being condescended to, because I am a woman. I nave no complaints about the service, but I resent being told, in so many words, "You wouldn't understand" when I ask exactly what was done to my car. Where can a girl learn the basics of auto mechanics? Diane J. Astoria, Long Island DEAR DIANE: Chsck your local YWCA. Many YW's offer classes in Exhaust fumes deadly One of the most common forms of suicide is the inhal- ing of car exhaust fumes in a closed garage. A very effective killer, one saucepanful of pure carbon monoxide is enough to put its victim to sleep forever. A great deal less than that in a dosed car will bring about headache, nausea and drowsi- ness; reason enough to keep the exhaust system good and tight. How do you know if your car is exhaust-safe? You can't ten much from sniffing because carbon mon- oxide is odorless. There's no mistaking the sound of a blown muffler or leaking exhaust pipe, of course. First a rumble and then a roar, the noise It your signal that you have waited too long to htve the system checked. Powderpuff Mechanics. They are not too technical, yet they do give you a basic under- standing of what maltes a car tick and what services are needed. You may not be able to re- pair your brake system after the course, but you should be able to put a stop to what's bothering you. DEAR DEDE: Help me settle am argument with my husband. My car owner's manual tells roe to change oil every miles. I only put about miles a year on my car. So I change my oil about every eight months. My husband says oil should be changed every two months. Does he know more than the owner's manual? D. E. Winnipeg, Manitoba DEAR D.E.: Your husband is right. The owner's manual obviously is re- ferring to normal driving. Your miles a year is well be- low normal and indicates that most of your travel is short trips to the market and run- ning errands. This kind of driv- ing is tough on the engine since it seldom reaches efficient op- erating temperature. So, the oil supply can become contamina- ted. Making sure your oil is fresh is about the cheapest in- surance policy against pre- mature engine wear. Listen to hubby and enjoy your car. THE BRAKES OF THE GAME Instructor Gene Flunker of Neenah, Wisconsin, explains the braking system 'o a group of students at the YWCA Powder Puff Mechanics course. The ladies leorn the rudiments of automobile opera- tion in the class, one of many offered by YW't throughout the United Slates and Canada.
