Antifreeze - Batteries - Control
The winter driving season is here. Freezing temperatures, wet sloppy roads and long slow rides to and from work are almost certain to be in the near future. Winter can be demanding especially on your car. Here are three tips that will help protect you and your car.
Antifreeze - Keeps the Engine Cool and You Warm
Antifreeze or engine coolant is the life blood of the engine cooling system. It is mixed with water and stored in the radiator, it's primary purpose is to prevent freezing of the water in the radiator. Antifreeze also is the very thing you need to create heat in the car to stay warm and defrost those frozen windows. Several key factors should be kept in mind especially in the winter time.
Batteries - Weak Batteries Will Go Dead In Freezing Temps
Batteries do not like cold weather, weak batteries hate it. It is difficult nowdays to tell when a battery is getting weak. More and more we are seeing people caught by surprise with a dead battery. To avoid getting stuck out in the cold with a car that won't start, follow these tips.
Control - Stick To The Road - Stop Straight - See And Be Seen
Maintaining control on those wet slippery roads is the most important aspect of winter driving. The tires need to grab the road and the brakes need to stop the car straight. working headlamps, brake lights and windshield wipers make it easy for other drivers to see you and you to see them. These important tips can make the difference between chaos and control.
It takes only a few moments to look things over. Taking the time to inspect things now can save a lot of trouble and a lot of money when the freezing temps and sloppy weather hit.
