As the cliche says, winter is coming. Drivers should make sure their cars are ready for the winter chill to help avoid a breakdown.
Wichita’s weather forecasters are predicting cold, nasty weather ahead with a front sweeping through the state today into tomorrow: ” A few flurries are possible, but the bigger weather story will be a strong/gusty wind and much colder temperatures.”
That’s the cue to pull out those heavy winter coats and other warm clothing if you haven’t already done so. It’s also another cue to make sure you winterize your car to make sure you don’t end up sitting at the side of the road in a freezing car waiting for a tow.
At the very least, you should check your antifreeze, according to the humbledhomemaker.com. While you’re checking that, you should also make sure your tires, oil and wipers are also ready for the cold.
“When temperatures fall, air inside tires contracts and causes the pressure inside to drop, which can make tires susceptible to damage,” the humbledhomemaker.com says. ” Colder temperatures can cause motor oil to thicken, which can cause starting problems. Change your oil just before winter to help keep oil flowing easily through your engine.”
You should get your car to a trusted Wichita auto repair mechanic as soon as you can.
