5 Simple Ways To Get Your Car Ready For Winter

Yesterday I was checking my anti-freeze on my vehicles making sure they had the right blend of anti-freeze & water so my engine block doesn’t freeze this winter, and today I checked the tires and discovered a nail in one of my tires, I’m glad I caught that problem before it turns 5 degrees outside. So don’t wait til it gets too cold outside to check over your vehicle because freezing cold temperatures will be here before you know it.

#3 Give your battery some TLC

Make sure your battery posts are corrosion-free and has all the water it needs and have a repair shop check it out if its 3 years old & older to make sure it still holds a charge.
