The Best Winter Care Tips for Your Automotive
The cold weather is hard on your battery, so be sure to have yours tested.
Change your windshield wiper blades if it has been more than 6 months since your last chance.
Consider special snow tires to avoid slick slippage along snowy passages.
Have your front and rear brakes checked, as faulty brakes are a major cause of many winter accidents.
Even if you have no place to go for days at a time, be sure to start the engine and let it run a few minutes.
Do not let your gas levels dip below a quarter tank, as some gases containing additives may freeze.
Keep your tires inflated, since every 10-degree drop in temperature causes a pound of pressure to escape.
