Preparing Your Vehicle for the Winter Season

With the holiday celebrations, just around the corner, will you be taking a road trip this holiday season? Let’s look at ways to get your vehicle ready for the winter season.

According to an article at johnsonsautocare.com, “Auto Care Winter Preparation Tips”

Motor oil: Motor oil tends to thicken in cold weather, making it harder to circulate to upper engine parts at startup. If you haven’t ever used synthetic oil before, this might be a good time to start. The flow properties of synthetic oil are a lot more consistent, meaning it doesn’t thicken in sub-freezing temperatures or thin out when it’s hot outside.

Wipers: Even the best windshield wipers only last about a year. If your wipers are showing cracks or chips or losing strips of rubber, go ahead and replace them. Don’t forget to refill your washer fluid reservoir…you’ll need it once the weather gets bad.

Cooling system: If you can’t remember the last time your coolant was changed, it’s easy for a technician to test its condition. Remember that coolant, a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water, prevents freeze-ups in wintertime as well as boil overs in hot weather.” To read the entire article click here.
