Steps for Winterizing Your Car

We know that the winter season can be harsh and sometime dangerous for road travel. That’s why it’s vital to winterize your vehicle to safeguard against any additional surprise service issues during this cold season.

You can take a number of steps on your own, such as:

?     Prepare an emergency kit with essentials like a flashlight, warm clothes, food and water, and jumper cables.

?     Keep an eye on your tire pressure and seek a tire inspection before the winter season arrives.

?     Maintain the proper level of windshield wiper fluid for colder temperatures and use the right wipers for the season.

There are also a handful of things you can do that require help from a Ford service expert. These measure include:

?     Battery, belt, and hose inspections.

?     Choosing a different oil for the winter months.

?     Replacing tires with snow tires.

?     Inspecting fluid levels such as coolant and antifreeze.
