Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Z WINTER IS who have sung the praise: of winter's beauty have never had to run a car that's in. sub-standard condition. While winter does hove scenic chorm ond an appeal to get into a car and enjoy it, the penalties for slipshod car eon are most Here, owner and strong-backed friend are paying the price for sub-standard tires. Tomorrow it could be a starting problem due to the lack of a tune up or another mishap. Improved Maintenance A Vital Concern Car Condition Everybody's Business The condition your car is in is everybody's business. Car Care is no longer just a personal whim for your own convenience but affects every other person in your commun- ity. With every conscientious per- son in this country vitally con- cerned with the environment, the engine has undergone close scrutiny. It has become fashion- able to criticize the automobile maker, casting complete blame for air pollution on his should- ers. Yet, car makers have already reduced pollution 65 per cent to 80 per cent since-I960. And in the next few years harmful pollutants will be reduced to nearly zero, according to top automotive officials like Gen- eral Motors' Ed Cole. But without conscientious maintenance on the part of the owner, no system can function properly. Studies show that an untuned engine, for example, spews as much us four times the rate of harmful omissions as a tuned one. The motorist's responsibility to his fellow man extends even beyond this vital area. Keeping safely components in good condition is a sign of responsibility to your fellow motorists as well as yourself and your family. That includes tires, brakes, visibility items and a number of related sys- tems. Maintaining your ear so that there is a minimum risk of breakdown wi a crowded ex- pressway or street is another indication of concern. A sub-par engine that sputters to a stop on a crowded thoroughfare can cause inconvenience to thou- sands of other drivers. By keeping all of your car's components in good condition, particularly in the months of foul weather ahead, you make an important contribution to the health and safety of your country. And you can easily live up to your responsibility by taking your car into your favorite ser- vice outlet for its expert assis- tance. As. the poet John Donne wrote, "No man is an islands unto himself." To make this "islande" more habitable, care for your car. Avoid Push ing Stalled Car, Depend On Jumper Cable Back in the good old days, whenever they were, the wise motorist always carried a rope in his car especially if it was subject to fits of stubborn- ness. More than one driver, cloak- ed in duster and goggles, has been seen tieing the rope to his front bumper so he could haul the car out of the mire. Later, man learned about pushing one car with another mainly to get the faulty one started. But car makers rec- ommend against pushing or towing by novices today. In addition to the distinct danger of damaging your au. tomatic transmission, it is al- together possible that your par- ticular car cannot be started wilh a push. So today's emergency mea- sure, other than the nearest telephone, is jumper cables long cables that permit you to transfer current from the strong battery in one car to the dead one in your own. Jumper cables cost only a few dollars in your auto store. They are good insurance if you know how to use them. First, be sure you have good ones. A heavy current load might melt inferior cables be- fore they can get your car started; Second, double check with your service dealer to be cer- tain you know how to hook them up correctly. This isn't hard to do, but on some cars you can ruin vour charging circuit if the cables are re. versed. So the thing to do is take notes when you are discussing the matter with your service man. Write an instruction sheet and attach it to the cables or slip it into the bag they come in. It isn't a bad idea to go through the procedure in your driveway at home. Then you'll feel perfectly confident to give your rescuer directions when he offers his help.
