With cold weather setting in, it’s time to have the Wichita auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive change your oil to one that can handle the cooler temperatures.
Cooler weather is welcome after a long, hot summer. But cooler weather can be hard on people, animals and cars. You can make sure it doesn’t take too big a toll on your car if you just follow a few winter tips for cold weather auto care.
Take your oil, for example. As consumerreporters.org points out, “Cold weather can beat up your engine, too. Motor oil thickens when cold, making it harder for the engine to turn over.”
So, find a few minutes before you take the kids to the pumpkin patch to have the Wichita auto care technicians at Tracey’s Automotive check to make sure your oil is formulated for winter use. If it isn’t – or if it’s been awhile since you’ve changed it – have it changed. And while you’re doing that, consumerreports.org says to be sure to change the oil filter as well to “ensure the system has the maximum amount of flow.”
