Still Cold Out There  | Maple Street Auto Care

Tracy’s Automotive on Maple Street can help you keep your car running throughout the cold Wichita winter.

Forecasters expect a chilly day or so then a “springlike stretch” before cold sets in again late next week. It’s good that we’ll be getting a break of sorts from the bitterly cold weather we’ve had this winter. But the prospect of more icy cold weather indicates drivers still need to worry about protecting their cars from the cold.

“Keeping your car ready to go is always important, but especially when it gets bitterly cold,” says

Wzzm offers tips from AAA that will help protect your car and keep it running all winter long:

  • Battery – Have your charging system and battery checked to make sure they are in good working order. If a cold snap kills your battery, have it looked at to see if you need a replacement or just a charge.
  • Gas – Keep your vehicle at least half full in order to avoid freezes in the system. This also ensures you will have fuel to keep your car running if you become stranded.
  • Washer Fluid – Make sure your washer fluid is topped off and with a formulation that can withstand expected cold temperatures, likely well below zero.
  • Coolant – Similar to washer fluid, make sure you have an anti-freeze that is rated for your regions cold weather. Again, well below zero down to -30° F is recommended. …
  • Doors – If you’re out and expect freezing conditions and wintry weather, place a trash bag between your car’s door and its frame. This can prevent the two from freezing together and make getting into your vehicle much easier.”
