Is Your Car Ready for Winter?
To fuel your love of cars,
visit the Autos section.
The change of seasons should be used as a reminder to address vehicle maintenance items. While following the instructions in the vehicles owners manual is probably the best way to gauge when repairs and maintenance are needed, I know that most of you either don’t have an owners manual (if you bought a pre-owned vehicle) or have lost or misplaced the one that came with the vehicle.
It’s no coincident that October has been labeled “Fall Car Care Month”…it’s the last quarter of the season and the beginning of the change in climate. Here are a few tips, that will get your vehicle ready for winter and running at its best:
1.Check your battery (or have it checked by your mechanic)
2.Flush your cooling system
3.Make sure the heater works
4.Replace wiper blades
5.Change your oil (consider switching to Synthetic oil if you’re not currently using it)
6.Check your brakes
7.Have the exhaust system checked
8.Check all lights
9.Pack an emergency kit for road trips (jumper cables, distilled water (battery),first-aid kit, duct tape and rope, blanket, knife, tire pressure gauge, snacks, paper towels, snacks)
