8 Steps to Prepping Vehicles for Winter
  
  
Winter Car Maintenance Woes - tis the season to maintain your car

1) Check the battery to make sure it is winter ready.
2) Tires should have mud and snow (M&S) or all-season tread and be in
    good condition.
3) Brakes should be checked and serviced if necessary. Even braking on 
    all four wheels will lessen the chance of skids on slippery roads.
4) Make sure your vehicle's exhaust system has no leaks. Carbon monoxide
    is a silent killer and can accumulate quickly in closed vehicles.
5) Make sure your wiper blades are in good condition. Keep the windshield
    washer reservoir filled with antifreeze solvent.
6) Check the radiator, heater core and all hoses that carry antifreeze solution
    to see that they are in good condition and free of leaks. Also check to
    see that the solution is good to at least 40 below zero.
7) Use winter weight oil (usually 5W-30) in the engine.
8) Carry a winter survival kit in the vehicle.
