The winter season can cause a lot of wear and tear to our cars. Fortunately, it’s easy to protect our car’s from damage if we know the proper winter maintenance essentials and tips. Here are winter maintenance tips to protect your transmission this winter.
Keep Your Car Warm
The first step you should take is keeping your car as warm as possible. If you store your car in a garage, it should keep it fairly warm. If your home doesn’t have a garage, start your car a few minutes before you leave your home. Do not like it idle for too long or leave it unattended.
Check Your Fluids
Make sure all of your car’s fluids are topped off. If you have to put more Anti-freeze in your car, make sure it’s a mixture of half water and half coolant. Also, make sure you are using the right transmission fluid for your car.
Make Sure Battery Is In Good Condition
Make this one of your number one winter maintenance tasks. You don’t want to be stranded in the cold if your battery stops working. Check to see if your battery is clean and have it tested.
Have An Emergency Kit Ready
If you do happen to break down, have an emergency kit ready. This should include jumper cables, snacks, winter attire, ice scraper, shovel, and other emergency necessities.
