Just got the car back today form my mechanic. I had him change all fluids, including differential, power steering, oil and filter, trans (well the tranny was rebuilt anyway, so of course the fluid is new), coolant, and brake fluid, and had him lube the entire car at all the lube points.
What a difference, in the hot sun today in the san fernando valley when I picked up my car, AC on Full, in bumper to bumper traffic, the temp did not go anywhere past halfway between 80 and 100. The car's Temp gauge, showed 112 degrees outside, I could not believe it. My car with the fresh collant, ran coller than it did before.
What have you guys done to prep your car for the long hot summer?
My car right now feels like a totally different car. The new springs have lowered the car perfectly, and the car handles much better than it did before.
You guys can see some new pics of the car with the lowering springs on my site.
