Winterize Car Tips for Newbies

If you haven't had any experience working on your vehicle now is the time to learn some very basic winterize car tips that will save you from unexpected breakdowns & keep some money in your wallet. I found a great video presented by an instructor from Metro-Tech that goes through all the checks you need to know to help you and your vehicle survive the winter.

If you don't want to go through these steps yourself, at least you will know what has to be looked at the next time you go to your repair shop. You could realistically save an hour worth of labor at a shop and you will get into the routine of carrying out these checks every year. Buying your own fluids, parts and simple tools like a tire guage and coolant tester will save you from paying higher retail & shop labor costs.

While your on the road you might be stuck in a situation where you need to check your tire pressure or know what to check when you lift the hood on your vehicle. Watch these winterize car instructions before you head out on your next road trip.
