How to Winterize Your Car in Collierville

Jeep Compass driving down street in winter

Before the season changes and the weather gets chillier, you’ll want to take the time to winterize your car. This ensures that you don’t face major automotive issues like getting stuck on the side of the road near Southhaven, MS, or having your heat fail on a long drive from Oxford, MS for the holidays.

6 Tips to Prepare Your Car for Winter

  1. Change Your Oil: Now is a good time to check your oil and get it changed if necessary. The cold weather causes oil to thicken, so you might also want to consider changing to an automotive oil designed for winter during this season.
  2. Check the Heat: Few things are worse than getting in your car on a cold day only to realize that the heating system isn’t working. Prevent this misfortune by getting your heating system inspected at your local service center.
  3. Check Antifreeze Levels: Antifreeze prevents your engine from freezing when the weather is cold, so it’s important that this component is kept at the proper level all winter. You can check the antifreeze level yourself or have it done by a professional.
  4. Keep Wiper Fluid Levels High: The winter brings about plenty of snow, sleet, ice, and sludge, which affects your visibility when you drive. To ensure you can always see clearly, make sure your wiper fluid is filled to the proper level. You can also switch to a winter-specific wiper fluid that doesn’t freeze and helps loosen ice and snow.
  5. Check Your Tires: You don’t want to blow a tire or get stuck on the side of the road in Memphis with a flat, so it’s important to have a tire inspection when you winterize your car. Make sure the pressure in all four tires is at the correct level, and make sure the tire treads aren’t worn down too low. You can also have your tires rotated when you get an oil change.
  6. Create an Emergency Kit: In the event that you do get stuck, you’ll want to have an emergency kit handy to keep you safe and warm until help arrives. You should pack a first-aid kit, non-perishable foods and snacks, bottles of water, flashlights, changes of clothes, blankets, a battery-operated radio, extra gloves, hats, and scarves, an ice scraper, road flares, jumper cables, and sand or kitty litter for poor traction.
