Wyoming and South Dakota get their fair share of snow. It’s not anything like the lake effect snow that the states surrounding the Great Lakes get or the states that are farther north, but still enough to be wary. Temperatures can dip into the single digits and this can do a number on your vehicle if it isn’t in prepped for the winter changes.
As luck would have it, once one part goes… the rest can seem to follow. If your vehicle seems to be having issues since the beginning of the cold weather, there might be some good reasons why and easy fixes to make it good as new.
Here are some easy tips we want to share to keep your vehicle running smooth in the winter months.
Winter Weather Vehicle Tips
Once you can check these tips of your list, you should be in good working order
- Antifreeze – Checking your antifreeze is one of the utmost important needs for the winter. If there isn’t much in the tank it could freeze, causing your vehicle to overheat (which can cause worse problems). If you haven’t have a coolant flush in the last few years, this maybe another solid option which will lead to the antifreeze being topped off and without worry.
- Battery – If you feel like the vehicle’s battery doesn’t have the juice like it once had, it might be time to change it before it dies and you’re stranded in the middle of nowhere.
- Getting a Tune-Up – This can help with the other fluids that might need to be topped off. Change your oil, spark plugs, fuel filter, and make sure all belts are in working condition.
If the vehicle still stays sputtering or struggling, look to your trusty mechanic for help.
Accidents, dents, dings and the like can happen all the time during the winter as well.
