Amesbury Winter Car Care Tips

 

As anyone in the Amesbury area will tell you, winter weather can create a number of challenges for drivers. But with a little planning and preparation, there’s no reason why you can’t drive with confidence all winter long. Not sure where to start? I’ve got you covered with these winter car care tips.

 

Test battery

 

Cold weather can put extra strain on your car’s battery, and can quickly transform a dying battery into a dead battery. Before winter officially arrives, it’s important to test your car’s battery to make sure it’s up to the task of winter driving.

 

Monitor tires

 

Between snow, sleet, ice, and cold, traction is very important when driving in winter. Fall is the perfect time to check in on your car’s tires and monitor for proper pressure, alignment and tread.

 

Keep an eye on antifreeze

 

Coolant (AKA antifreeze) is essential for keeping your car’s engine running when the temperature begins to drop. As the name implies, antifreeze literally keeps the engine from freezing up in the cold, so it’s important to keep an eye on antifreeze levels going into the colder months of the year.

 

Stow emergency kit

 

Finally, it’s always a good idea to stow some emergency items in your car. During the winter, you should pack a kit in your car that contains food and water, blankets, and a battery-powered cellphone charger.
