If you're a vehicle owner, you probably want what everyone else does. You want your car to look good, be reliable, and get you from one place to another without having to worry about plunking down your hard earned cash for a car repair bill.
So, how do you prevent this? Through proper maintenance and planning. Without this, you might as well expect to be spending your spare time sitting in our waiting room.
Now that winter is upon us, let's take a look at some winter car care tips that might just help you in avoiding the above scenario.
- Make sure that you have lots of windshield wiper fluid. The roads get salted to prevent ice and snow build up, so you'll be driving through lots of water and slush. It'll end up on your windshield and the only way you'll be able to see is by using the wipers and the fluid to clean off the windshield. Bad visibility can lead to accidents.
- Try and keep your fuel tank filled with as much gas as possible. A tank with excessive air in it coupled with decreasing / cold temperatures means an increase in condensation. And in the winter, this can mean a freezing fuel line and engine problems later on.
- When parked, and expecting excessive snowfall or ice, tilt your windshield wipers up. If you don't do this, you risk the rubber of the wiper freezing onto the glass surface, rendering it inoperable when needed. If you're not careful and just pull the wiper to free it, you'll very likely tear the rubber right off the wiper arm.
- Check your battery. Ensure that your battery is charged up at the proper levels to decrease any chances of it dying in the cold. If you suspect any issues, consider replacing it altogether.
Remember, no matter what season it is, it's always a good idea to keep up with your car's scheduled maintenance tune ups. It'll keep your vehicle running smoothly, and help you to avoid those pesky car repair bills.
