Me And Cars...

...ummm... I don't seem to be the best person to be allowed to own a car. I think I'm too blonde. I keep forgetting that a car needs looking after. For some reason, they won't work if you forget to put the petrol in, so I've pretty much cracked remembering that one. And checking the oil, though not top of my priorities, is something I do every now and then... but then, of course, I forgot about the water for the radiator...

I didn't actually overheat the engine. Close. Luckily a friend had told me that if the engine gets hot, you can cool it down (a bit) by wacking on the heating full blast...

I can confirm that this works.

Dang Mac, Thanks for the tip re: turning the heater on full blast. Let's not forget the detail about "tire pressure." [or "tyre" in your case.]

Cars are so needy aren't they? You'd think by now someone would have come up with a design for one that didn't require so much pampering! =)

Thank you for the tip, I'm not very good when it comes to cars(am also a blonde) but I would be lost without my car, but hate it when something goes wrong

Don't worry. I overheat my truck on a regular basis. I overheated and was dumping anti-freeze while visiting a Benedictine Abbey once and one of the priests got down on the ground under my vehicle and was trying to fix my truck. Very humbling. But you know, those monastic types are very hand. At least, if you put the whole group together they can find someone for almost any job... I just stood back, absolutely clueless stammering like an idiot "Ummm... yeah... I'm sorry Father, I don't know anything about vehicles."
