Spring showed its beautiful face for only a couple days and gave all the hope that winter had past. But recent weather across the nation, and especially in the west, has showed that the winter is not over just yet.
Winter storms and winter weather are a common occurrence throughout the spring time for many areas of the country. The sporadic and varying warm and cold weather of spring has left many communities to claim that if outsiders don’t like the weather, all they need do is wait fifteen minutes.
While the colloquial saying has been adopted by numerous communities, there is still some shade of truth to be found in their assertions. Spring is a blending of weather, from rain to sunshine to and sometimes back to bitter cold and snow.
The continued cold weather means that all of the dangers associated with winter weather must still be considered and prepared for by all. For many, these winter preparations and precautions will include re-winterizing their vehicle for their daily commute.
Winterizing one’s vehicles, even at the tail end of the winter season, can greatly improve the reliability of a person’s vehicles throughout the spring and into the summer. The first step that people can take to guard their vehicle against the continued colder weather is to ensure that the car is up to date on its maintenance.
Vehicle Maintenance is Essential
Proper maintenance of the vehicle should include having the oil changed regularly. As the sporadic weather of spring turns an engine cold, the oil in that engine may thicken, reducing the oil’s ability to lubricate the engine properly.
By keeping up with the maintenance schedule of a vehicle, the vehicle’s owner will be able to ensure that the engine runs smoothly throughout the tail end of winter. Additionally, the owner’s manual of the vehicle may include suggestions as to which type of oil should be used during the cold months of next year to avoid this oil-thickening issue.
Other items on the vehicle can likewise be re-winterized to improve performance. Wiper blades can be upgraded to ensure clear visibility during the wet spring months as can the car’s battery to prevent the cold days from draining the vehicle’s power supply.
More winterizing tips for vehicles include purchasing and equipping snow tires, keeping those tires properly inflated, and using the right anti-freeze for the make and model of the vehicle. By re winterizing their vehicle properly, individuals can better ensure that their spring commutes will go more smoothly.
