Car Care for the Clueless – Your email questions answered by Pam and Peter

This week on Car Care for the Clueless, host Pam Oakes sits down with our own gadget guru Peter Sudak and plays catch-up with listeners’ e-mails. Both ASE-certified technicians put in their two cents and explain in each situation why it is beneficial to your wallet to keep your vehicle maintained properly.
