How to Prep Your Vehicle for Winter

It’s time to winterize your vehicle! Following these steps can help prevent problems when the weather is cold.
1. Check your coolant levels and make sure they are at the proper level. In cold weather, coolant helps prevent your engine from freezing. 
2. Check your battery and make sure it is in good working order. Cold weather can make it more difficult for your battery to hold a charge, so it’s important to make sure it is fully charged and in good condition. 
3. Check your tires and make sure they have enough tread and are properly inflated. In winter weather, good traction is essential for safe driving. Make sure your wiper blades are in good condition and able to clear snow and ice from your windshield. 
4. If your vehicle has a diesel engine, use SUMMIT™ Total Diesel Treatment the next time you fill your tank. Summit™ provides a high level of anti-gelling protection and removes excess water from diesel, meaning that wax and ice crystals are less likely to form even if your vehicle sits in low temperatures all winter. With Summit™, you’ll get greater protection to a lower temperature at less cost than blended fuel. 

5. If you’re putting a gasoline engine in storage, add FUEL FIX RX™ Gas Treatment and Conditioners to your gas tank. Fuel Fix Rx™ helps to prevent ethanol fuel phase separation, so the inside of your gas tank won’t rust over the winter. 

6. If you will be parking your vehicle for an extended period in cold weather, consider using a block heater to keep the engine warm. This can help make starting your engine easier in very low temperatures.
