Plane Tickets: My wife and I were planning a trip to visit family in Ecuador. The cheapest airfare from Traverse City, Michigan to Quito, was 20. Out of curiosity, I checked Miami to Quito, and it was only 4. Airfare from Traverse City to Miami was 0. Book two separate flights and save more than 00! The discount sites aren’t set up to search in this way (yet), so you have to do this on your own. By the way, the whole six-week trip, which we took in 2004, cost 00, including losing 0, and being robbed of 4.
When you take your vehicle for an oil change, you can expect only the most skilled mechanics to care for your car. And your car will receive a thorough inspection. The tires, brakes, transmission, and power steering fluids will be checked. And any of your engine’s fluids will be changed if necessary. Any problems with your car can be discovered by having this service completed on your car. Since your car is in constant use every day, it certainly faces wear and tear. Some issues with your car may go unnoticed. A professional can figure this out and get your vehicle back on track.

On an automatic car, a dipstick will be provided for you to check your transmission fluid levels. In most cases, it’s towards the back of the engine compartment, so you may have to stretch a bit to reach it. Don’t let this be an excuse for not doing it. Unlike checking the oil, the car should be running to get a true reading on your levels. Be careful that you don’t burn yourself on any of the hot car parts while performing your inspection. If you drive a stick shift, the process of checking the level is quite a bit more involved, so you may wish to let an auto repair expert do it for you.

For me, it’s just a good excuse for us to spend time together. If i get to make a neat looking license plate purse or two while doing it, so much the better.
