Preparing Your Car for the Winter - Waspy's Truck Stop

Winter is right around the corner and that comes with cold weather and snowy and icy roads. Waspy’s wants to make sure you and your car safely get on your way after making a pit stop. We will go over some steps you can take to make sure your car is ready to take on the harsh cold winter that is coming in the next few months. Taking these steps to prepare will make sure your car is up and running during the cold winter months. 

BE PREPARED 

Bringing your car into a car shop get some maintenance done will make sure it’s in tip-top shape during the winter. This maintenance will check things like fluid levels, tire pressure, brakes, and tires just to name a few. 

Another thing to check for before the winter is your tires. Installing winter tires is a good place to start when getting your vehicle ready for winter. Using winter tires are best for the winter months but all-weather tires are a suitable option for all times of the year. Maintaining your tire pressure will also help your car’s control during the winter. Even a small change in the temperature can have a big effect on tire pressure. So checking and filling your tire’s air will make the probability of sliding diminish significantly.  

One important thing to check when winterizing your car is your battery. Batteries tend to lose power when the temperature drops. This means that it will take more power to start your car in the winter. If you already have battery problems, your risk of your vehicle breaking down increases significantly.
