Prepare Your Car for the Winter Ahead
As the season changes, the cold weather can do a number on your vehicle. Taking the right precautions can prevent you from having a date with Mr. Jack Frost. Here are some tips on how to prepare your vehicle for the changing temperatures ahead.
TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR
Also known as the TPMS sensor, the cold weather causes the air in your tires to condense and lowers your tire pressure 1 PSI per 10 degrees (up to 5lbs!). Low tire pressure can be extrememly dangerous and directly affect your fuel mileage.
A weak battery has to work extra hard in cold weather to start your vehicle. If your battery is tested as weak, most likely it will not have enough power to start your vehicle in cold temperatures.
Antifreeze pulls the heat from your engine and cools it to normal operating temperature. Old antifreeze can lack this ability or allow water to freeze in your engine, causing considerable damage.
