The cold winter weather isn’t over yet. Make sure your car has enough antifreeze to make it through the rest of the season’s frosty nights.
As hard as it might be to believe, spring is just ahead. The warm days that are forecast to reach into the mid 60s at times are ample proof of that. But before anyone looks for the first robin of spring, remember that the nights are still freezing cold. So don’t relax your attention when it comes to the impact cold weather has on your car.
For example, the nonprofit Car Care Council reminds drivers to check your antifreeze during the winter months. Keeping your antifreeze topped off is “is important because it is used to cool the car’s engine, as well as protect it from freezing in cold weather. It also acts as the key agent in providing heat inside the car’s cabin,” according to the council. “The cooling system protects against damage by keeping the engine operating within the correct temperature range.”
The council adds, ““Cooling system failure is the leading cause of engine related breakdowns, which can cost thousands of dollars and leave you and your family stranded at the worst possible time.”
While you’re checking the antifreeze, also take a moment to look at the hoses to make sure they’re not cracked or otherwise broken and that they are still attached. An antifreeze check is also a good time to have your battery and brakes checked and to change your oil as well as have a trusted Wichita auto care expert perform other preventive care to help keep your wheels in top condition.
