Check Your TiresDriving in bad weather can be tough with even the best snow tires. Make sure yours are in top condition to avoid accidents on the highway. Also, check your tire pressure. As the temperature turns frosty, the pressure in your tires decreases. Add some extra air to your tires, just in case.
Take your Battery in for a Check-upYour battery takes a toll by working harder to keep the engine warm in the winter. Have your mechanic check your battery life and replace it if necessary. You’ll be thankful you checked this the next time you see someone in a parking lot trying to jump start their car while standing in a pile of snow!
Check all FluidsThis is an important part of car maintenance that you should always keep up with, but make sure to tackle this part of your to-do list before it gets too chilly outside. This includes checking your oil, your windshield wiper fluid, and the anti-freeze in your vehicle. These can all thicken in colder weather and can even cause more harm than good if they are too thick, too thin, or need replacing, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Following these tips to prepare your car for winter means you and your vehicle should be ready for whatever old man winter throws your way. Safe travels!
