Cold weather tends to hit unprepared or neglected cars the hardest, and that can result in a major headache for drivers. Check out these tips to keep your Cadillac in top shape in cold weather.
Coolant, commonly known as antifreeze, keeps the engine from
freezing up in cold weather. A vehicle low on coolant could be in trouble. Most
dealership technicians recommend a 50/50 mix of coolant and water in the radiator.
Mixing water with the coolant helps further lower the engine freezing point
than coolant alone.
If a battery is weak during warmer weather, it’s very likely
it will be a dead battery once cold temperatures roll around. A simple volt
test can help determine if a battery is strong enough to survive winter.
Drivers can keep their battery in working order by making sure its secure,
tightening connections, and scraping any corrosion off the posts. If the
battery is more than three or four years old, it may be best to replace it with
a new one.
As cold weather rolls in, tire pressure tends to fall with
the temperature. Low tire pressure can result in increased tire wear and a loss
in traction. Keeping the tires properly inflated can help improve efficiency
and grip on slick roadways.
