When you need Sand Springs auto care to get your car through the winter, call on the Sand Springs auto care gurus at Same Day.
It’s holiday time and a lot of people are planning road trips to be with distant family or friends for the season. Others are planning a seasonal getaway to, well, just get away. Still others are planning to stick around Tulsa whether it’s to stay home or enjoy one of the many activities around the city from Winterfest to an Oilers hockey game.
Travelers and stick-around-towners have something in common – the well being of their cars. Neither one wants their car to have trouble at any time, but particularly not during cold winter holiday time.
There’s away to help prevent a breakdown. Just make sure you keep up with routine auto care and, as State Farm Insurance suggests, add in some steps because it’s winter:
- Check tire pressure weekly. Driving on underinflated tires can cause them to wear down prematurely and lose traction on icy or slippery surfaces. Your tires lose a pound of pressure with every 10-degree drop in temperature.
- Keep your fuel tank half full. During winter weather, it's a good idea to keep at least half a tank of fuel in the vehicle in the event of an emergency or if you get stuck in the snow and need to wait for rescue. For longer road trips, plan stops for gas in advance.
- Add a protective layer. A coat of polymer wax can create a barrier against road salt, grime, snow, sleet and more. Couple that with high-pressure car washes after winter storms to rinse away buildup in hard-to-reach areas such as wheels, wheel wells and underbody.
- Protect your windshield wipers. If you park outdoors, leave the wipers in the raised position to prevent them from freezing to the windshield. Never use your wiper blades to remove ice, snow or frost from the windshield; use an ice scraper instead.
