How to Check Radiator Fluid Level

Your car's radiator is the heart of its cooling system, which also includes a fan, water pump, thermostat, hoses, belts, and sensors. It directs coolant around cylinder heads and valves to absorb their heat, return it to the radiator, and dissipate it safely. Because of this, you need to maintain an adequate radiator fluid level, which means you need to check the coolant level and add to it when necessary.

1. Park the car on a level surface. Ideally, you should do so after driving the car a short distance. You want to check the antifreeze or coolant level while the engine is cool or lukewarm, not hot or cold. If you have driven ... Read more

ThrowBack Thursday: Buick Roadmaster 1938–1939

The Roadmaster is an automobile that was built by Buick from 1936 to 1958, and again from 1991 to 1996. Roadmasters produced between 1936 and 1958 were built on Buick's longest non-limousine wheelbase and shared their basic structure with entry-level Cadillac and, after 1940, senior Oldsmobiles.
Styling changes for 1938 were modest, with a longer hood extending to a now nearly vertical grill, taller bumper guards and redesigned hubcaps, but the effect was striking. Important changes were made to both engine and chassis. The ride was improved by replacing the rear leaf springs with coil springs, supported by double-acting shock abso... Read more

First off, synthetic oil is better than conventional oil when it comes to its form and function. Conventional oil could n... Read more

As long as your car is running the way it should, you probably don’t even think about all the parts that are working under the hood. Your air conditioning (AC) compressor is one such part that is used every day, and you probably don’t even consider it until your air conditioning stops working. As with many accessories in your car, it is difficult to say with any accuracy how long the AC compressor will last. It depends on the age of your car, and how often you use your AC. As your car ages, and as the AC compressor sustains a lot of use, parts will inevitably begin to malfunction. Then, you end up with little cool air (or ev... Read more
