Is your car fully prepared for the winter season?
The harshest winter weather seems to come later these days. Be sure you are prepared so you save yourself money and aggravation. Here are some recommendations:
Changing the coolant is part of winterizing. It will be good up to negative 30 degrees and keeps your heater core from clogging. Doing this will keep your heat hot on those frigid days.
Check the Battery and Lights
Your battery can lose 35% of its power at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Your battery should be checked for clean, tight connections. Extreme cold weather needs all its cold cranking amps to start that engine. Get battery checked for free at Sunoco.
Change Your Wiper Blades
It is recommended that wipers be changed at least once a year and going into winter is always a good time.
Check Your Tires
Tire care and maintenance is especially important in the winter months. A tire that has enough tread to be driven in dry weather may be insufficient for winter weather. Tires can lose a pound of air for every 10-degree drop in temperature.
Have your brakes inspected by a certified technician to ensure all components are in good working order.
Check and Top Off Fluids
Be sure to keep plenty of windshield washer fluid on hand and check other vital fluids such as engine oil, transmission fluid, power steering and brake fluids as well.
Emergency Supply Kit
Your car emergency supplies should include a first aid kit, battery jumper cables, flashlight with extra battery, a shovel, windshield scraper, a bag of sand or kitty litter for traction, a blanket and some extra warm clothing, drinking water, some snacks and a cell phone.
If you follow these simple steps in preparation for winter and maintain your car on a regular basis it will help to keep you and your car safe in any season.
