Car Care for the Clueless

Car Care for the Clueless – 012312

This week on Car Care for the Clueless, host Pam Oakes and ASE-certified L1 tech Jimmy Shewmaker discuss how important it is to maintain your vehicle. They stress this by giving “horror story” examples about individuals that did not listen to their tech and pushed their vehicles beyond the mechanical limits.
Pam has her Cheap Car Tip — and the emphasis on “cheap” — to help you and your vehicle’s interior. Remember, a clean vehicle is a profitable vehicle. Meaning, keeping the car or truck nice will only enhance the resale value!
Our trouble service bulletins focus on Cadallic and Honda, this week. Tune in and see if your vehicle is included in the recalls that Pam announces.
Our email question of the week wants to know what to fix first, on their vehicle. Our mystery writer asks Pam if they should replace the bald tires or fix the coolant leak. Tough choice, but Pam lets them know which direction to go. And, if you have an automotive question that you would like Pam to answer, don’t hesitate to email her at:
Our gadget guru Peter Sudak is back! He has another economically priced gadget to make your life easier while traveling the highways and byways. Actually, this will help you before you get into your car or truck. Pretty interesting stuff, Peter!
