Here in New York, winter can arrive suddenly without much warning. That is why it is so important to winterize your car. Follow these simple steps below to get your car ready for the cold and snow.
Your vehicle’s fluids are what keeps everything running smoothly. Make sure all fluids are clean and at the proper level. Pay particular attention to your coolant, oil, and washer fluid.
Those four pieces of rubber that keep you in contact with the road can quickly become useless if they are worn too thin or damaged. Check your tread depth and you can even switch to winter tires, which do a better job of cutting through snow and staying soft when temperatures drop.
Any starting troubles can become exacerbated in the winter. Check your car’s battery, cables, and terminals.
In case you do get stuck on the side of the road, you want to be prepared. Pack an emergency kit with items like a blanket, extra gloves, a small shovel, flashlight, high-energy snacks, water, and other emergency items.
