FALLING TEMPERATURES CAN SIGNAL TROUBLE AHEAD, FOR MOTORISTS.  BEFORE HITTING THE ROAD THIS WINTER, MOTORISTS SHOULD PERFORM SOME SIMPLE MAINTENANCE-CHECKS, TO HELP PREVENT AN UNEXPECTED BREAKDOWN.  ACCORDING TO AUTOZONE, COOLING-SYSTEM FAILURES ARE A LEADING CAUSE OF ROADSIDE BREAKDOWNS.  IT'S CRUCIAL TO CHANGE ANTIFREEZE EVERY TWO YEARS, OR 24-THOUSAND MILES, TO PREVENT ENGINE-OVERHEATING--AND EVEN ENGINE-FAILURE--AS A RESULT OF OLD AND CONTAMINATED ANTIFREEZE.  FOR AROUND 10 TO 15 DOLLARS, A PROPER MIX OF ANTIFREEZE CAN SAVE YOU THOUSANDS, IN ENGINE-REPAIR COSTS.  ALSO, WHILE NOBODY LIKES TO BE STRANDED IN THE COLD, MOTORISTS OFTEN NEGLECT PARTS LIKE BELTS AND HOSES, UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE.  IN FACT, NEARLY 50-MILLION CARS ON THE ROAD HAVE WORN BELTS--ANOTHER LEADING CAUSE OF ROADSIDE BREAKDOWNS.  REPLACING THESE PARTS, AT RECOMMENDED INTERVALS, CAN HELP PREVENT COSTLY BREAKDOWNS.  THESE CAR-CARE TIPS CAN BOTH MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR WALLET, AND HELP YOU REACH YOUR DESTINATION.
