Long Lasting Cooling System For Your Car

Our vehicles operate in a wide range of outside temperatures in Michigan. That’s why vehicle manufacturers use testing grounds from the frozen tundra to the blistering desert. Your engine coolant must be able to perform in these extreme temperatures, even if we don’t always get the extremes here.
A Long Lasting Cooling System For Benton Harbor Michigan Driving
Coolant has to move heat away from the engine to prevent costly damage. Water does a very good job of holding heat, but it freezes at thirty two degrees (Fahrenheit).
That’s why we mix anti-freeze with water – it lowers the freezing point of the coolant, and raises the boiling point as well. A fifty/fifty blend of water and antifreeze is the usual recommendation from Pro Muffler & Brake Shop.
And on top of that, coolant has to protect the components of the cooling system from corrosion. Your owners’ manual will tell you what kind of coolant you should use.
Coolant system failure is the most common mechanical problem people have. Much of that can be avoided by following factory scheduled service intervals.
Check your owner’s manual or with your service adviser. We can also conduct a cooling system inspection to look for leaks, weak hoses or bad connections.

Car Scent Is Good For Southwestern Michigan Drivers?

Car Scent Is Good For MI Drivers? Here’s a Michigan travel tip that I’ll bet you didn’t know, and, it might keep you safer: The average American commuter spends two and a half hours daily in their car.

The government says a hundred thousand auto accidents yearly are caused by drivers who fall asleep at the wheel. Aggressive driving is the number-one traffic safety concern.

So what does this have to do with how your car smells?

Well, which scent did you think makes drivers more alert?

Is it:

A. Strawberry
B. New Car
C. Pine
D. Warm Vanilla Breeze

It’s C.  Drivers in Southwestern Michigan are more alert and have less fatigue with pine scent in the car, according to AroMetrics.

And, Michigan drivers were less angry with overall improved driving performance with strawberry and pine scents.

And you thought they just smelled nice.
