How can I aviod car engine problems?

Prepare your car for warm weather

Something you sould begin checking on now is that your radiator still has a good level of antifreeze/coolant. With warm/hot weather coming on, this will aid in cooling your engine when using the airconditioner. In hot weather, you should check weekly for sufficient water and coolant. NEVER remove the radiator cap when engine is hot!! If the water is a transluscent green, you probably have sufficient coolant, but best to have a professional check first off. You could also purchase a test gauge at auto supply store.
