Okay, gang, it's time to remember to do some of the little things on our cars that are so easy to forget.

If you have an OEM battery, you may have a battery that requires adding distilled water. Time to check the water level and top off, if needed.

Also, with the warming weather, it's time to adjust your tire pressure. The 32 PSI I was running this winter in sub-freezing weather is now equal to about 36 PSI (a little high, for my tastes - don't wanna wear out the tires too quickly) with the temps hitting the 60's now.

Also, don't for get to change your tire air from the denser winter air to the less dense summer air.
That was a joke, right?

As I recall, the wter should just reach that ring, so when you look in, the water forms like a concave shape.

And thanks for posting your model year, so I can say to Natskiboy: :p


:lol:
