Its cold here and got LUCKY

Postby dakcub » Mon Jan 14, 2013 8:59 am

Cold snap in So Cal this week..I had to leave Seafoam in front yard as lawn art this week. Bought a 99 Dakota R/T as my new toy and it took the spot in the garage.. Seafoam radiator had water in it..yea I know I have owned her almost 3 years and checked it for the first time yesturday. Drained it out before it froze.

In Bakersfield?? Dang!!!

As far as the antifreeze - it's not just antifreeze, but also corrosion inhibitor. Too many folks forget how important that is.

Dakota R/T - nice. Just got a handmedown Dakota ext cab sport that I'm learning how to work on. 1,000,000 miles of GM in the driveway and a Dodge...
We went from 70 to 25 overnight - the doors froze shut on the truck and took two of us and a pry bar to get the doors open...
