Trouble Free Summer Travel

Summer is here and we love to travel to ‘hot’ places with our families. For example; there is much desert to be crossed to get to the Grand Canyon. No one wants to get caught with the hood up on the side of the road. This tends to raise the temperatures of more than the vehicle. Before your trip we suggest checking your vehicle with a pre-trip inspection. Ideally do this a week or two before your scheduled departure date. Special attention should be made to the Cooling System and the Air Conditioning System. Quick Factoid: Summer heat can send parts of your engine to nearly 200 degrees F – some engine bits can even reach 500 degrees, literally oven hot! NEVER open the radiator cap on a hot engine!

Air Conditioning Explained

ARE YOU HOT?!Air Conditioning Explained Your car's ‘skin’ of steel and glass is not only protective and beautiful, but it also attracts and stores a tremendous amount of solar (radiant) heat in the passenger compartment. Removing this trapped heat requires a very efficient system. The Air Conditioning (A/C) system is a combination of mechanical components plus a chemical medium (Freon – not a psychic) whose sole purpose is to move heat from the interior to the exterior of the vehicle.

Stress Reduction

Stress Reduction

Stress Reduction Tip A young lady confidently walked around the room while explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Half Full? Half Empty? Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, “Is this glass half empty or half full?” She fooled them all, "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile. The answers called out ranged from 8 oz to 20 oz. She replied, "The absolute weight does not matter.It depends on how long I hold it: If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem.If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm.If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance.In each case it's the same weight ... read more
