Here are some basic tips to help you protect your car this winter:
Maintain the Exterior
Winter is the time when your car gets exposed to the rock salt applied to the streets and ice melt. If these particles are not washed and removed from the car’s surface, they can corrode your car’s paint and speed up the rusting process. You can hire a professional car service to clean the undercarriage of your car. Another solution would be to oil spray your car during fall; this acts as an obstacle between the car and the debris on the street.
Check the Tires
The temperature differences can cause a drop in tire pressure. You need to know that a low- pressure tire increases wear and consume more fuel. So, before driving your car this winter, check the pressure in the tires and ensure that they are in the normal recommended range.
Check the Rubber Components
Check the vital rubber components on your car such as hoses, window wipers, and belts. Since rubber easily gets damaged from low temperatures, it is very important that you take note of them before you are surprised by any breaks or tears. Care for the battery The fluid inside the battery thickens during winter due to which the current flow gets affected. A regular volt test is required to make sure your car battery is in good condition. Top it up if there is a discharge or replace it if it has become weak.
