How to Winterize Your Car

Winter is finally here, and it’s important to think about how to protect your car from the harsher weather. The act of getting your car ready for the colder months (also referred to as “winterizing”) is essential to keeping your car safe. There are four steps to winterizing your car.

First, is checking your battery. The most reported issue with cars breaking down is dead batteries. Having your battery checked occasionally can save you a lot of money and headaches in the future. Second, is checking your tire pressure. When temperatures drop, things constrict including the air in your tires. Air pressure gauges are inexpensive. During the winter months, keep it in sight to remind yourself to test your tire pressure often. Third, have your antifreeze checked and have it checked correctly to prevent costly damages to your vehicle. Lastly, avoid letting your gas gauge get below half. When your tank nears empty, you run the risk of letting your gas lines freeze.

Stay warm this winter and remember to keep an eye on your car. A quick check up a day can keep the tow trucks away!
