Oil change intervals
Your driving habits can determine you car's oil
change intervals. Car engine oil does not wear out;
instead it becomes contaminated with moisture,
unburned fuel and acids. The stop and go conditions of
city driving produce more contaminates because the
engine seldom reaches operating temperature long
enough to burn these contaminants out. On the other
hand, highway driving allows the engine to reach
operating temperature long enough to burn the
contaminants from the oil. You should change your oil
and filter more frequently for city driving, at about
3,000 miles, compared to as much as 5,000 miles for
highway driving. No matter what your driving
conditions, check your oil level periodically.

Towing heavy loads
Most of today's cars have automatic overdrive trans-
missions in them for better fuel mileage. The overdrive
ratio in the transmission means the engine can turn
lower RPM's for the same MPH achieved in drive.
Towing heavy loads in overdrive will overload the lower
RPM engine and in certain situations causes the trans-
mission to down shift for better pulling power. As the
speed picks up, the transmission will shift back into
overdrive until the engine is once again overloaded.
This constant down shifting and up shifting can burn
up the overdrive unit. To prevent this, when towing
heavy loads manually shift the transmission out of
overdrive to the next lower gear or turn the overdrive
off with a switch near the shifter depending on your

allergies, you are not
Fido and Fluffy can
suffer from allergies, too,
and feel just as bad as you
Experts say pet owners
need to do something
new to prepare this
season: Get their pet
The belief that allergies
are strictly-a human
problem is not true, says
Dr. Mark Stickney, a
veterinarian at Texas
A&M's College of
Veterinary Medicine &
Stickney says pet
allergies are not simply
limited to dogs and cats.
Even horses are known to
contract allergies. Pets
may have seasonal
allergies or permanent
allergies similar to
humans, but the intensity
of their reactions can
differ quite significantly.
'"Animals may be
allergic to dust mites,
cedar, pollen, elm, fleas,
different varieties of
molds and many of the
same allergens that affect
Pet owners should pay
close attention to the
behaviors of their pets,
especially when the
seasons change, he notes.
Stickney says a sign of a
pet being afflicted with
.allergies is constant
scratching of the body,
especially around the
pet's feet, ears and tail.
Allergies tend to make
pets itchier than usual,
causing this frequent
"Dogs normally do not
lick their paws. If a pet
owner catches a dog
performing this behavior,
allergies might be the
culprit," he says.
Another sign of allergy
problems in dogs is
constant ear infections.
Cats, on the other hand,
tend to develop a full-
body itch and scabs
located all over their
body, Stickney says.
These scabs are caused by
the animal's consistent
scratching of one area.
If a pet. owner would
like to pinpoint the cause
of an allergic reaction,
many veterinary offices
offer allergy testing that
can identify the culprit.
One way of ridding the
animal of the allergen is
to buy special allergy
shampoos. These help
eliminate the allergen
from the pet's coat, which
may reduce the reaction.
The less exposure the pet
has to the allergen, the
less likely a reaction will
occur, Stickney believes.
For these shampoos to be
most effective, the animal
should be bathed
Other options for
antihistamines, fatty acid
supplements and steroid
pills that may be
prescribed by a
veterinarian. Also, many
dogs and cats tend to be .
allergic to fleas, and pet
owners should constantly
keep their pets free of
fleas by using flea control
by their veterinarian.
If an animal has an
allergy to dust mites,
dusting and vacuuming
often to prevent contact
between the dust mite
and the animal.
Stickney adds that pets
may also be allergic to
certain pet foods. A
reaction commonly seen
in pets with food allergies
is scratching that is not.
"Many times when
animals are allergic to pet
foods, the allergy is
caused by a certain
protein in the food," he
'Stickney recommends a
dietary trial to identify
and eliminate the protein
causing the allergic
appropriate diet for a pet
with food allergies can ,be
challenging, and he
recommends seeing a
