"http://www.pohankalexus.com Tips to help you prepare your vehicle for Winter, from Pohanka Chevrolet.
One important part of your winter safety is wiper blades. Good wiper blades are necessary for clear visibility and safe driving. You know you need to have your wiper blades replaced when you use them and they don't clear the windshield streak free.
Another winterizing tip is to have your tires inspected to ensure you have good tread and tire pressure. Colder temperatures cause the air in your tire to contract, resulting in lower tire pressure, which can affect safety and handling.
It's also important to check your fluids, especially the washer solvent and cooling system. The washer solvent provides the necessary fluid to keep your windshield clean, and the cooling system keeps you warm.
If your vehicle is 4 Wheel Drive, manufacturers recommend regular 4x4 checks to ensure your 4 Wheel Drive operates correctly when the weather conditions worsen.
Many cars run on gasoline, but electricity is important to start your vehicle, which is why you will need to have your battery checked before the cold weather. Your battery's efficiency operates 30% less during the winter than in the warmer weather. It's important to know that your battery is operating properly, so you can rest assured your vehicle will start properly in the cold.
