PRLog - Dec. 10, 2012 - Cold, harsh Oklahoma weather can greatly affect your car. It’s very important to pay attention to your vehicles cold-weather needs, the same way you would pay attention to your own! There are several ways to prepare your car for the cold weather at leading Oklahoma Honda service center, Barry Sanders Honda.
Oklahoma Honda Dealer Helps Customers Prepare for Winter
Oklahoma Honda drivers should pay close attention to engine oil and coolant. Drivers should consider switching to thinner oil for the cold weather. This will help to keep your engine well balanced. An engine’s coolant system is designed to protect your engine from corrosion. Cold weather coolant should have ethylene glycol in it to help better protect the engine.
Cold weather can also have a negative affect on a car’s battery. Colder temperatures reduce Battery capacity so ensuring you’re in good shape with a thorough inspection of your battery, cables, terminals and fluid is probably best before the harsh winter months hit.
Oklahoma Drivers Prepare Their Cars for Cold Weather
Tires may be one of the most important parts Oklahoma Honda drivers should take care of this winter. Driving through snow, sleet, ice, and salt can be quite difficult. Put yourself at an advantage against the snow and make sure you have the correct tires. Also be sure to check your windshield washer fluid and be sure to use one with antifreeze solution.
It’s also important for Oklahoma Honda drivers to be prepared in case of an emergency. For your own peace of mind, it’s probably best to have an emergency kit in an accessible place. Just in case you get stuck, be sure to have flares, blankets, boots, a radio, engine oil, washer fluid, coolant, and a flashlight.
