Prepare for extremely cold weather every winter — it’s always a possibility. There are steps you can take in advance for greater wintertime safety in your home and in your car.
You can avoid many dangerous winter travel problems by planning ahead. Have maintenance service on your vehicle as frequently as the manufacturer recommended schedule.
In addition, every fall:
- Have the radiator system serviced, or check the antifreeze level yourself with an antifreeze tester. Add antifreeze, as needed.
- Replace windshield-wiper fluid with a wintertime mixture to minimize freezing in the lines.
- Replace any worn tires, and check the air pressure in the tires.
During the winter, be careful to keep the gas tank near full in order to help avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines.
Keep your car fueled and in good working order. Be sure to check the following:
- Brake fluid
- Tires (for both air pressure as well as wear)
- Windshield wiper fluid (wintertime mixture)
- Emergency flashers
