Autumn season is here! Like it or not, winter will arrive soon. To be sure that your vehicle is ready for the worst, it's time to winterize your vehicle before the cold season arrives. 

Do you know what you should be checking before winter? Here are some things to do:

(1) Install Winter Tires - It is recommended that you install winter tires when the temperature drops below 7 degrees. Winter tires have more traction and will stop faster in an emergency because they are specifically made for harsh winter conditions. In addition, the air pressure should be checked to ensure that it is at the recommended level.

(2) Get an Oil Change - There are specific oil types recommended during winter. These oil types have less viscosity (thinner) which enable the engine to work more efficiently during the cold season.

(3) Check Battery - Have the battery tested to be sure that it has enough power to start your engine on a very cold morning.

(4) Check Block Heater - When the temperature drops below -15 degrees, you will need to plug in your vehicle. Check that your vehicle's block heater is working as it helps the engine start and warm up faster.

(5) Check Coolant - Make sure that the coolant is at an appropriate level and in good condition.

(6) Washer Fluid - A washer fluid that can stand cold winter temperatures, ideally down to -40 degrees, is what you need and not a regular one.

(7) Windshield Wiper Blades - There are winter wiper blades designed to effectively handle snow and ice.

(8) Floor Mats - Custom-designed rubber mats for the make and model of your vehicle will trap snow that you transfer into your vehicle. You will find them easy to clean up as well.

(9) General Tune-up - Check the brakes, belts, filters, ignition system, heater/defrosting system, lights, and other parts.
