Colder weather can bring a plethora of problems for your vehicles and a little work now can save you a lot of time and money down the road.

According to Car Doctor Manager Katie Rodriguez, the colder temperatures can break down the metal on a car and can wear down the car physically. Rodriguez adds that something as simple as not having enough coolant can cause problems, “It causes a lot of corrosion so a lot of parts start to break physically. So then if you lose coolant , then you overheat and cause head gasket problems, you can end up on the side of the road. Those are all bigger problems.” It is also important to make sure to have tires that are in good shape with winter conditions. According to Rodriguez you should have your tires looked at everytime to you do an oil change.
