Winter maintenance is essential

It will not be long until Pennsylvania roads are covered with snow and ice, and when that happens, you want to make sure your vehicle is ready.

Being ready for winter starts with the fluids that keep them running. Antifreeze, oil and even windshield wiper fluid should be checked. Antifreeze should be at the right ratio to keep it from freezing. Consider changing to a winter grade oil and winter windshield wiper fluid as well. In general the colder it is the thinner you want your oil to be.

Don't overlook your tires when preparing for winter. Check the tread depth and consider a winter weather tire for better traction. Stocking your vehicle with safety items like a flash light, road flares, blankets and a first aid kit are also a good idea. An extra phone charger is good to have also in case you are stranded and need to call for help.
