Belardinelli Tire Winter Car Care Tip #4: Check Your Fluids

Winter car care is essential as the cooler weather ushers in the snow, ice and other hazards of seasonal driving. If you winterize your car now for the coming harsh weather, you enhance your vehicle’s life, saving you from expensive repair bills. Below are some tips from Belardinelli Tire Co. to ensure your car is prepared for this coming winter.

Inspect your antifreeze while your engine is cold by using a tester to check the mixture for its freeze point. Before winter hits, check your antifreeze/coolant. Top it off before you see the warning light. Check your owner’s manual to determine whether or not you are due for a flush. If you do need a flush, have it done. Make sure that you have the right product for your car, as well as for the conditions.

Have your charging system checked at Belardinelli Tire Co. Cold weather starts make the vehicle battery work much harder and getting stranded in the cold is no fun.

Change your oil and oil filter. Clean, high quality engine oil goes a long way in protecting the motor in cold start-up situations. Use the oil recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Some types of oil don’t perform as well in the cold.

Windshield Washer Fluid  is one type of fluid that gets used more often due to the messy conditions resulting from bad weather.  When your fluid levels are appropriate, and you have the right types in your car, it will run better, and will be less susceptible to problems that can cost you money down the road.
