How to Safely Winterize Your Vehicle in Reno Nevada

How to Safely Winterize Your Vehicle in Reno Nevada

With the seasonal changes comes auto maintenance that needs to be attended too. Here are auto repair tips on how to winterize your vehicle to keep you safe on the road this winter in Reno Nevada.

According to an article at, “Auto Maintenance During the Winter Months”

“Winters used to be tough on cars, but today’s vehicles are designed to operate well over a wide range of temperatures, from bitterly cold to stiflingly hot. By and large, a thorough winterization is no longer necessary — but if you live where it snows, there are a few things you can do to prepare your car for winter.

Check the coolant for the proper mix of antifreeze and water. You can have a mechanic do this or you can buy a tester at your local auto parts store.

Check the oil recommendations in your car’s owner manual. Some manufacturers recommend a different grade of oil that flows better in cold temperatures.

Check the battery, specifically the level of electrolyte. If it’s low, top it off with distilled water.”
