Winter Auto Care Tips #5

TIRES - STAY PUMPED!

In winter temperatures , our tires can actually lose air pressure and that can wreak havoc on gas mileage, tire wear - and most importantly - our safety.

 

Carry around a tire gauge and learn to read it. Tire pressures can vary between vehicles, so it’s best to consult your owner’s manual to find the proper pressure for your tires.

CHECK YOUR ANTIFREEZE.

 

Don’t let the neon green color fool you… the additives in antifreeze can expire so it is important to change it out completely every two years – at least.

 

Not sure when it was changed last? You can easily check its endurance and freeze point with an antifreeze tester (they cost less than five dollars at any auto parts store).

 

But if you're not a do-it-yourselfer, have it checked at your favorite NAPA AutoCare Center. They have more accurate and reliable testers.

BE PREPARED. There are certain items that you should keep in your car year round in case of an emergency or accident. For winter – add these extras to ensure that you are safe and prepared for anything that comes your way.

A WARM blanket, flashlight, Road flares, sand for traction in snow, shovel, windshield scraper and water bottles in case you break down during the freezing temps.

Winter Auto Care Tips #2

REPLACE THE BLADES.

Many of us forget about wiper blades until it rains. However, keeping the snow and ice off your windshield keeps you safe and your visibility on icy roads clear. Many of us can stretch out the life of our blades by clearing them off with a paper towel and some glass cleaner, but in the winter – that’s not practical.

 

It’s best to change them out when the cold weather hits.


It is recommended that you change your blades every two years.

LET THERE BE LIGHT!

 

Winter means that the days are shorter and our commutes are darker.

 

It’s important to check that all the lights in your vehicle are fully operating. Change out the ones that are burnt out and if your headlights are foggy or yellow, consider replacing them or look into an easy restoration kit.

 

Also check to be sure that snow and/or ice is not covering any exterior lights BEFORE you set off on your travels!
