WALTERS GARAGE HOPE Third & Louisiana ARK- CT-SNAPSHCT CUIL Plan Those Christmas Cards Now Tokio Fresh Oil Vital for Winter Use Lubrication Should Be Changed at 3 Points in Automobile Motorista Who Wnnt to derive maximum satisfaction from the winter operation tof their cars arc taking time now, at the Approach of cold weather, to have fell lubricants changed. Increased demands imposed by cold weather make the step most important. It is one of the first (Kings that should be done when winter makes itself felt. Lubricants should be changed at three points, the crnnkcnse, the trims- mission housing, and the rear axle homing! Motorists who understand the reason for this yill give the job attention it merits. And that reason is simple. Lubricant 1 ! tend to become thin nnd lose their lubricating quality under extreme heat, nnd to thicken under extreme cold. For this reason, summer-grade lubricants nre made hcav- icr-bodicd than winter-grade, because they must withstand, without excessive thinning, ont only the heal dc- beloped in operalion but high outside temperatures ns well. Winter lubricants, on the other hand, are thinner at normal temperatures than summer lubricants, so that not even very cold weather will make them to thick to flow. It is highly important thai summer oil be drained fr6m Ihe crnnkcase, and the latter Ihoroughly flushed to remove all trace bf it, before cold weather s$ts In. The refill should be made with the grade of winter oil recommended by the manufacture for that make and.model. This will assure a supply of fresh, clean lubricant, of the proper consistency for the engine in question. And what is equally important, the flushing will rid the crankcase of any accumulation of dirt. moisture, and other foreign substances which, if left there, would lend lo form slude and choke the oil linos. At the two points where heavier lubricants nre used, the case is similar.
