Comments Off on Car care during winter temperatures
Winter is hard on cars. The following tips can help your vehicle (or even you!) last longer through harsh cold weather conditions…
Let your car warm up before you begin driving. Allow your vehicle to warm up two to three minutes before taking off.
Have a trusted car repair facility check your anti-freeze to ensure it’s good.
Check for proper air pressure in tires, and if you need tires, change them so you have good traction for the winter.
Replace your windshield wipers & fill your washer fluid jar with a fluid that contains anti-freeze.
Repair any large chips in the windshield. If you don’t, when you turn on your defroster, a stone chip can turn into a major crack necessitating an expensive new windshield.
Have your brakes checked before the roads get slick.
Check for a leaky exhaust. If an automobile has an exhaust leak it can be life threatening, especially if you are stuck somewhere and forced to sit in a running vehicle for a lengthy time period waiting for help to arrive.
