All Star Chevrolet North’s Tailgating Tips

Image

The big game day has arrived, and so has your other favorite sport -Tailgating! We do not want the American tradition of tailgating to be lost with poor prepping and planning. Let’s kick this tailgating season off to a great start by utilizing some of these amazing great tips from the All Star Family that will get the game going!

Are you needing to maximize your tent space this tailgating season? Try hanging a paper towel roll using a bungee cord from the tent struts. This is not only clever, but very effective. We all know that space can be an issue out there on the tailgating field, so this will help you make room for other items. This will spark your creativity, and who knows, maybe you will find other things that can be hung in the same fashion.

One thing to consider while you are setting up your station and grill- is the position of the grill. You grill masters may know this already, but for first time tailgaters will need this advice. If it is a very windy day, which is likely in South Louisiana, your charcoal grill will burn faster if caught it the wind’s path. You should point the front leg of the grill into the the wind, to minimize wind coming into the vents at the bottom. It also helps to bring extra charcoal too.

If it's a very windy day and you have a charcoal grill, be sure you bring a little extra charcoal because the wind can make it burn faster. Point the front leg of the kettle grill into the wind to minimize wind coming into the bottom vents. If you have a gas grill, turn the grill perpendicular to where the wind is coming from to minimize its effect on your food. Get more great windy-day grilling tips here.

A frito pie station can be a game changer while main dishes are still grilling. Make your favorite chili the night before in a crock pot. All of the toppings can be placed in plastic cups, which should already be on your list of items to bring. Then those plastic cups with the toppings can be transported using a re-purposed drink holder. Outside of the box thinking is required for tailgating day!

These are just a few of some great tailgating tips to get your day off to an awesome start. These tips will sure give you an edge over the competition out there. The football season and tailgating season is all about fun! We recommend you getting out there to smoke the competition with these tips!

Summer Heat Tech Tips

 

ASCN, ASF & ASK

We all know how blistering hot it can get in Louisiana during the summer time, and getting into a hot car is no fun. You burn your legs on your hot leather seats, you feel like you need to wear oven mitts to touch your steering wheel and your dripping sweat before you even start your car! Summer can be tough on cars, especially during high temperatures when heat can destroy batteries and stress the cooling system and tires. As a precaution, these vehicle components should be checked periodically during summer to help avoid breakdowns and car problems. All Star Chevrolet North is here with some awesome summer tech tips to make sure your car is in perfect condition for the hot Louisiana weather.

Cars are designed to run hot, but there’s a limit to how hot they should run. But if an engine is allowed to get too hot, moving metal parts can actually start to melt and fuse together, causing a variety of internal problems for your engine. Luckily, all modern cars have an ingenious cooling system that uses a chemical coolant, called antifreeze, and a series of pumps, hoses, thermostats and fans to keep the car at its optimal running temperature. But any problems with this system – low coolant levels, cracked hoses, lose or broken belts, a leak in the radiator or even a loose or missing radiator cap can cause your car to overheat and break down.

  • The summertime is tough on cooling systems. Sitting in traffic on a hot day is one of the quickest ways to overheat your car. This is because there’s no air flowing across the engine to help keep it cool. A well-tuned cooling system can take long idles in hot weather, but if you have low coolant levels or a busted fan belt, your engine temperature is going to go up, and fast.
  • Check under the hood and make sure that your coolant levels are fine. The general rule is to flush your radiator and add new coolant at least every two years. Flushing the radiator is done with a special chemical that cleans debris and build-up on the inside of the radiator. For summer driving, coolant should be added as a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water. You can even buy premixed coolant so you don’t have to bother with the measurements!

Tires need special care in warmer weather as high temperatures put added stress on them. To maximize tire life and safety, check the tire condition and inflation pressure monthly. It is also good to have the tires rotated every 5,000 – 6,000 miles. Summer heat will cause the pressure within a tire to rise, therefore, it’s important to check the pressure when tires are cold. Your vehicle’s owner manual includes the recommended air pressure for your vehicle’s tires.

Sunshades are sometimes metallic and look almost like aluminum foil stretched across the inside of a windshield. Others, especially ones designed for back seat windows, have child-friendly designs such as Winnie the Pooh on them. Their use is obvious: they keep the sun from reaching the inside of the car and heating up the seats. If you do not have a sunshade, you should try to pack away from the sun. Parking in the shade or in a garage is also highly effective and recommended whenever possible!

National Car Care Month

2016-04-11 National Car Care Month

April is National Care Car Month! “Why April?” you may ask yourself. In April, as winter comes to an end, it is time to get your Chevrolet ready for spring driving and summer road trips! National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of any issues that may have occurred or been ignored during winter. Spring time is filled with sunshine, some afternoon showers and lots of pollen. Make sure your Chevrolet’s tires are rotated, balanced and in good condition for those wet roads. Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Also having your wheels properly aligned after a season of tough conditions can help keep you on the road in a safe direction. Also make sure your windshield wiper blades are being replaced every 6-12 months to avoid streaking on your windshield.

With all of that pollen in the air, your Chevrolet’s air filter can get clogged up pretty quickly. Make sure you are routinely checking and changing it to ensure optimal air flow is being produced. When it comes to Chevrolet safety, the brake system is at the top of the list. Making sure your brakes are working properly before you head out on those slick roads or long summer road trips will ensure for a safe and comfortable ride! Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, check your Chevrolet’s braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.

If you need assistance with any of these car care tips, we are more than happy to help! You can schedule a service appointment 24/7 by clicking here!
