Vehicle Preparation for the Cold Months Ahead

 

Brrrr. It’s November and Winter is almost here. Time to get your vehicle in shape for those cold months and holiday trips ahead. At Gary’s Auto Service in Florissant, MO, we can help. Here are some tips you can use to prepare your vehicle:    

 

  • Check your engine coolant and antifreeze levels. As its name suggests, antifreeze keeps your engine from freezing in cold weather. Without it, your engine could freeze, leaving you stranded.

 

  • Check your tire pressure and tread depth. Good tires critical to safe driving on snowy, icy roads. Stop by Gary’s Auto Service and let us check them for you

 

  • Use winter windshield wiper fluid. Not all windshield wiper fluids are the same. Winter windshield fluid is specially made to avoid freezing on your windshield, unlike the ordinary kind that often freezes on contact. Stop by Gary’s Auto Service in Florissant and let us replace your old fluid.

 

  • Switch to a winter-grade oil at your next oil change. The colder the weather, the thinner you want the oil in your engine to be. At Gary’s Auto Service in Florissant, we have winter-grade 5W-30 motor oil that can help your engine run smoother in the colder weather.  

 

  • Make a winter supply kit for your vehicle. A winter supply box may be the single most important thing you can do to protect your vehicle and your personal safety if something goes wrong this winter Be sure to include:

  • Flashlights

  • Road flares

  • First-aid kit

  • Blanket

  • Warm clothes for the driver

  • Extra pairs of gloves

  • A radio

  • Charged cell phone for 911 calls

  • Bag of sand or kitty litter for traction

  • An extra ice scraper

  • High-energy snacks like nuts or jerky
     

As you’re getting ready for the holidays and the cold months ahead, remember, winter weather can be dangerous. This year, be sure to play it safe. Come see us at Gary’s Auto Service or schedule an appointment online.
