Do you only take care of the things you can see?

"Out of sight, out of mind" is a major problem for many of us. We all have plenty on our plates, and all too often our attention goes first to the matters most visible to us. As a consequence we neglect the unseen.... until it becomes a problem that forces us to deal with it, oftentimes when it is most inconvenient.

To quote another well-worn maxim: "A stitch in time saves nine." This especially applies to what's going on under the hood. We're talking cars here. How often do you take a few minutes for routine fluid checks on your vehicles? This includes the radiator, oil, transmission and brake fluids.

For most people their car or truck is their second largest personal expense. That's why they need to take care of it. Using premium quality motor oil, radiator fluid, transmission fluid and brake fluid is only one part of your protection package. Wise vehicle owners check their fluid levels on a regular basis to insure that they are at proper fill levels. No coolant in the radiator can result in a cracked engine block. Low lubricant levels result in inadequate protection of moving parts, resulting in unnecessary wear and early retirement for the vehicle you love.

This is just a reminder, just in case you don't have a reminder method already established.

Meantime, enjoy your summer....
