Play it cool
We often talk about the importance of making sure to go for an oil change. However, we sometimes forget how important it is to ensure that we do not run low on antifreeze. Without it, your engine will get extremely hot (who can blame it, with the thousands of explosions it makes a day) to make your car go. It is not only important to make sure to top up on antifreeze when you think you are running low, but it is also crucial to make sure that your neither your radiator nor your hoses are leaking. If they are, this is not a car repair that you can put off as the money that you will have to cough up to fix your engine down the road will end up being a lot more than you would have to pay up front to fix the broken belt/chain.
