PAGE 6A ;lewell County Record, l udmtO, THURSDAY, ,k i' The hot weather of recent weeks has caused an unusu- ally large number of cars being disabled due to some type of mechanical failure. Most of the trouble stems from tire failure and over- heated engines. Our modern interstate highways are an inducement to this type of difficulty, as we travel at sustained high speeds and do not give our tires and motor a chance to cool down periodically. I feel however. that most of this trouble car be avoided if we will do the following things before starting on a trip. Under-inflation is the pri- mary culprit in tire failure. As we all know frictiof causes heat. The flexing Jr, an under-inflated tire causes friction which builds up heat to the point of tire blow-out. This can happen even in ex- pensive new tires. Normal town driving and short trips do not necessarily call for high tire pressures but when you have your car heavily loaded and plan to drive al highway speeds for long dis- tances, increased tire press ure is a necessity, l would recommend at least thirty- five pounds tire pressure in your cold tires for vacation driving. This pressure will increase as your tires warm up. This Ls normal and there is no need to reduce the pressure as the pressure goes back down when your tire cools. Proper tire press- ure will not prevent all tire tfoub, le however. 1 have not- iced many people start trips With tires that are worn and tmgafe, Often they will com- plairl of "bad luck" when they experience tire failure. It is better to buy the need- ed tires before starting, than to become stranded on a highway somewhere and be forced to make a costly emergency tire purchase. The overheated motor will cause loss of your vacation time and can be very frus- trating. The causes of over- heating are varied. A com- mon one is the heavily load- ed car with a small motor towing a trailer. This driver is going to have trouble un- der ideal conditions. All cars experience cooling trouble when temperatures "each one hundred plus if the cooling system isn't in good condition. Although you certainly will not need your heater this summer, a broken heater hose can cause you to lose your radi- ator fluid and your car will be disabled. Check these as well as your radiator hoses periodically. A loose or bad- ly worn fan belt can cause engine overheating. A radia- tor that is partially clogged with rust, etc. will also cause overheating by re- stricting the water flow If your car runs too warm on short drives it is certain to overheat on long drives in hilly country with hot temp- eratures. A thermostat that is not opening properly can also cause overheating. The few minutes it will take to have these items checked is time well spent and could )revent costly, time con- suming breakdowns.
