Winterizing Your Car
We had our first snow today. I can’t believe that I am looking out my window at 2 inches of snow! It’s time for us to winterize our cars and get them ready for the low temperatures we get here in the northwest. Here are a few things you should do to get your car ready. It will save you money on car care for sure and will keep your car running for longer.
1. Check your tire pressure. Air pressure chances with temperature changes. It’s important to check it to make sure you’ll get the right traction on more dangerous conditions.
2. Change your wiper blades and add washer fluid. This may sound unimportant, but when you are on a long road trip in a terrible blizzard, you’ll be glad you had enough fluid to make it so you could see through your windshield.
4. Switch to snow tires. Having two sets of tires is nice because they will last longer switching the two out. Plus snow tires are great for winter weather conditions.
5. Check your radiator levels. This is HUGELY important in the world of winterizing. If your anti-freeze is off, you could cause damage to your engine and have to incur some costly repairs. Make sure you have the right mixture of anti-freeze and water as well.
