Winter is just about here, in theory at least. So it is time to talk about winterizing your car to make sure you can commute safely to family and friends for the holidays and do so comfortably.
Firstly the one we can all get our heads around, tires. You will want to have your tires checked for any punctures or excessive wear, and you will want to make sure you get your tire pressure checked. Colder weather can affect your tire pressure ratings, and you’re going to want to make sure those are still up to manufacturer standards.
Second ,check your Heating system for any possible issues; trust me, when it is 25 degrees, and you’re driving across state lines to visit relatives for Christmas dinner, you’ll want that heating system to operate in all its glory.
Because of the warmth, you’ll be needing. Therefore, it is imperative to have your antifreeze and cooling system checked to ensure you won’t have that hard-working engine overheating anytime soon.
If you have a 4WD vehicle, you’ll want to get your fluids checked to ensure that a more active system in possible slick situations can operate at its most total capacity.
So now you’ll be capable and comfortable navigating through the winter. Now, you have to make sure you’ll see everything in front of you; it’s a good idea to get your wipers checked, if not replaced, along with possibly using a winterized washer fluid for your wipers. Those solutions will include some antifreeze components to help melt any freezing conditions.
