Preparing Your Car For Winter | Accent by Chubb

  1. 1. Prepare Your Car For Winter There’s still time to prepare for the harsh winter months.
  2. 2. You can thank El Niño for unseasonably high temperatures in some areas of the United States— and perhaps for the extension in winterizing your car. But procrastinating much longer isn’t a good idea. Increasingly cold temperatures make it harder for your engine to function properly, plus salt on the roads causes rust, and when the snow and ice arrive—if they haven’t already in your area—your car’s traction can be compromised.
  3. 3. Vehicle experts at Edmunds, the Department of Motor Vehicles and the National Safety Council have tips on winterizing your car—and traveling safely. For those who live in particularly wintry conditions, Edmunds recommends using snow tires. Here’s why: If your tires are worn or are high-performance or all- season tires, they’ll be less likely to perform well and you'll be more likely to skid (and crash) if you’re braking on slippery roads.
  4. 4. Winter tires are designed to provide maximum traction in snow and ice. Tire pressure is just as important, since the air pressure in your tire can drop when cold air contracts. Checking for proper inflation all through the winter is a good idea. Just as hot climates can do a number on car batteries, very cold temperatures can reduce battery power by up to 50 percent. Edmunds recommends having your battery tested if it’s older than three years.
  5. 5. Checking coolant level and mixture is another must-do. Most antifreeze from auto supply stores comes pre-mixed, so you can just make sure that the coolant reservoir is filled to the proper level. Edmunds notes that just to be safe, you should consider testing the antifreeze to make sure it will prevent freezing. You can check the composition of a radiator’s mixture by using an inexpensive antifreeze tester that you can find online or at an auto parts store.
  6. 6. The Department of Motor Vehicles notes that climate changes can affect your car in serious ways. Their first recommendation is changing to the proper oil for your weather conditions. During the winter months, if you live where temperatures get below freezing, you'll want to switch over to thinner—less viscous—oil. If you use 10W-30 in summer, the DMV recommends moving to a 5W-30 when changing your oil in the colder weather—or referring to your car manual or the manufacturer to find which oil is right.
  7. 7. In some of the coldest conditions, door locks can freeze and break your key if your car doesn’t use an automated entry. The old-fashioned cure, the DMV says, was warm water, but if you don’t have any nearby, you can find glycerin for de-icing at discount stores, auto parts stores and hardware stores. It recommends stocking a tube at home in the garage and at your desk at work. After all, it won’t do you much good if it’s locked in the glove compartment of your car.
  8. 8. Finally, in addition to all your weatherizing, the National Safety Council recommends having these things in your car at all times: • Properly inflated spare tire, wheel wrench and tripod jack • Shovel Jumper cables • Tow and tire chains • Bag of salt or cat litter for better tire traction or to melt snow • Tool kit
  9. 9. Finally, in addition to all your weatherizing, the National Safety Council recommends having these things in your car at all times: • Flashlight and extra batteries • Reflective triangles or flares Compass • First-aid kit • Windshield cleaner • Ice scraper and snow brush • Matches in a waterproof container
  10. 10. Finally, in addition to all your weatherizing, the National Safety Council recommends having these things in your car at all times: • Scissors and string or cord • Nonperishable, high-energy foods like unsalted, canned nuts, dried fruits and hard candy • Blankets, mittens, socks and hats
  11. 11. Take the proper precautions in cold weather, and you should be able to drastically minimize weather-related danger you can experience in your car.
