With winter right around the corner, Auto Stop wanted to provide a few tips for winterizing your car.
Of course, anytime you feel like you have an issue, make sure to bring your car into our friendly Baltimore mechanics. There are a few ways you can winterize your car now, so let’s take a look at what you need to get ready for the ice and snow.
Advice From Your Baltimore Mechanic on Winterizing Your Car
Winterize Your Car with Engine Coolant
The coolant system in your car is meant to keep the engine from overheating. Your car’s coolant system will also help protect against corrosion. Because of how cold it can get, many people forget to check the coolant level in their car. A Baltimore mechanic from Auto Stop can help you make sure that you have the right amount of coolant and water in your car.
Winterize Your Car with Glycerine
If you ever found yourself in a situation where your door locks were frozen, you probably went into your home and got hot water to make the ice melt. But, what if you aren’t at home and are the only one left in your parking lot at work? It won’t help to have glycerine in your glove box, so make sure to keep a tube of it in your desk at work. It’s also a good idea to have them in your garage in case you have to deal with especially stubborn ice.
Winterize Your Car with Snow Tires
Snow tires do handle the snow better than regular tires, but snow tires also help when the road is icy or there is sleet. The road conditions can be especially dangerous if it wasn’t salted, so snow tires will help you be safer whenever it’s snowing, sleeting or there is ice.
