Although Tulsa has seen some cold weather this year, this weekend and the first part of Thanksgiving week is supposed to be drier and warmer. But, as everyone knows, the cold weather will return.
And that's why the folks at the nonprofit Car Care Council are recommending that motorists use this time to make sure their cars are winterized if they haven't already done so.
"Freezing cold temperatures can stress out a vehicle, as well as its driver,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “The recent record low temperatures are a harsh reminder to be car care aware. Motorists should invest a little time now to check their vehicles so they have one less worry when arctic temperatures strike again.”
Among the council's recommendations:
"Very cold temperatures reduce a vehicle’s battery power so it’s important to keep the connections clean, tight and corrosion-free. Batteries don’t always give warning signs before they fail completely, so if the vehicle’s battery is more than three years old, it’s wise to replace it.
"Be diligent about changing the oil and filter at recommended intervals. Dirty oil can spell trouble in winter. Consider changing to 'winter weight' oil if you live in a cold climate. Check the fuel, air and transmission filters at the same time.
"Have the brakes inspected and check the tire tread depth and tire pressure. If snow and ice are a problem in your area, consider special tires designed to grip slick roads. During winter, tire pressure should be checked weekly.
"Winter magnifies existing problems such as pings, hard starts, sluggish performance or rough idling, so if you’re due for a tune-up, have it done before the temperatures drop again. Also, clean, flush and put new antifreeze in the cooling system and have the exhaust system checked for carbon monoxide leaks, which can be especially dangerous during cold weather driving when windows are closed."
