What type of coverage do you need?

Oil - The oil in your engine changes with the weather. Depending on the temperature outside, the internal temperature of your engine will change, and as a result your oil changes. Make sure you have the correct kind of oil in your car to make sure your car is running as efficiently as possible.

· Coolant – Engine coolant is used to help protect your engine from corrosion along with protecting it from overheating.

· Battery – Your battery capacity is reduced by the cold weather.  Make sure to check over your battery cables for cracks and breaks. Also, check the charge in your battery.

· Snow Tires – Many car makers and tire manufacturers recommend changing all four tires to snow tires in the winter. Having snow tires can give you a huge advantage when driving through the snow.

· Windshield Treatment – Make sure you have enough windshield washer fluid in your car during the winter. Washer fluids with antifreeze solution are the best for clearing off cold, heavy grime.

· Frozen Locks – Your door locks can freeze in the cold weather and if you try to force your key into them, it can break the key. Using warm water or glycerin as a de-icer will solve this problem.

· Have an emergency kit – make sure to have an emergency kit in your car. You will be happy to have it if you are stuck on the side of the road during a snow storm. Some items you would need would be:

    • Flares
    • Blankets
    • Boots
    • Radio
    • Engine oil
    • Washer fluid
    • Coolant
    • Flashlight

Doing all these things will make the winter more bearable to drive it. You will also feel a lot safer knowing your car is in tip-top condition, ready to make it through any snow storm.
