Winter is around the corner. As temperatures drop, you'll need to prepare your car for the coldest time of year. Here are a few things to check when winterizing your car this season.
Lower temperatures have a direct effect o. Your tires. Cold weather lessens the air pressure in your tires. Low pressure and slicker roads are a dangerous combination. Keep a tire gauge with you so you can properly check and fill your tires.
Having the right mix of antifreeze and water is important as it keeps fluids from freezing in your radioator. Some coolants are pre mixed while others require mixing before being poured into your vehicle. Another fluid you will need is windshield wiper fluid. Grab a bottle of freeze-resistant wiper fluid to help you stay safe this winter.
Your vehicle's battery also takes a hit during the winter. The cold reduces battery capacity. A simple inspection of your battery, terminals, and cables will clue you in on how well your battery will perform this winter.
The winter should not stop you from keeping your vehicle well maintained. Be sure to stay up on regular maintenance procedures.
