Winterizing your car for the cold weather can save money, as well as keeping your vehicle off the side of the road in the dead of winter.

a few other things:

Make sure battery terminals are tight

and clean. Check radiator coolant strength with

a hydrometer. Recommended protection

level is -36 degrees. Never check hot.

Check oil, brake, transmission,

radiator coolant and power steering fluid

levels. Follow owner’s manual directions.

Inspect tire wear. Check pressure

with a gauge when tires are cold. Refer

to owner’s manual for recommended air

pressure and tread depth specifications.

Drive safe!

Yes this is very important because your car is more likely to break down in the winter. The cold weather makes things more susceptible to breaking. I know my alternator went in a snowstorm and believe me that was a fun drive home and even more fun trying to change it. Anyways I hope your car survives this winter.
