Some Suggestions for Winterizing Your Car

Stuff Your Mechanic Can Do

  • Check cooling system , flush every 2 years (or 30,000 miles).
  • Replace windshield wiper blades.
  • Check windshield wiper fluid.
  • Check battery strength or replace if weak.
  • Check lights and adjust headlight aim.
  • Check heating and defrost.
  • Inspect hoses and clamps for wear.
  • Check thermostat, belts, water pump and radiator fan.
  • Check tires, brakes and steering system.
  • General Stuff You Can Easily Do

    If you are having problems with traction, a way to increase it is to put a 40 lb bag of salt in your trunk.  For best traction results, use snow tires with proper depth of tread.

    You can estimate when to change a tire using a penney.  The depth of the treads should be half a penney.

    A dedicated snow tire will usually out-perform an all season tire.  Do not run snow tires during warmer months.  They are soft and wear more quickly.
