Getting Ready for Minnesota Winters

0 Comment

Winter in Minnesota can be very cold and snowy. It’s a good idea to make sure your vehicle is ready for the changes that are on their way.

Here are a few things that you should check:

Cooling System

  • Check for leaks at hoses, radiator, water pump, thermostat and gaskets
  • Make sure the coolant level is where it needs to be
  • Check that coolant strength is adequate

Battery

  • Have your batter and charging system checked

Transmission Fluid

  • Check to make sure your transmission fluid level is correct
  • Check fluid, if fluid is dark then a transmission flush is recommended

Tires

  • Check tire tread to make sure you have enough traction to get through the snow

Brakes

  • Have your brakes checked to make sure you still have enough brake pad remaining for optimal braking
