Winter Weather Car Tips

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 11, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Winter is here and that means you need to get your car ready. Here are a few simple tips from AutoZone that can save you a lot of trouble.


 * Replace Wipers and Headlights -- As it's important you can see and
   be seen when you are on the road, you'll want to replace burned-out
   or dim headlights and bulbs in pairs. At AutoZone you can also
   upgrade to whiter, brighter headlights to improve visibility and
   reaction time. Your windshield wipers are also important when it
   comes to making sure you can see. Make sure they are working and
   not cracked. When it comes to replacing your wipers, you'll also
   want to do that in pairs.

 * Replace Worn Brakes -- Make sure you change worn brakes before you
   are in a dangerous situation.

 * Check Your Battery -- Have your battery tested and make sure it's
   fully charged. If your battery is more than 4 years old, it's time
   for a new one.

 * Maintain "Cooling System" -- Flush and fill cooling system every 24
   months or 24,000 miles. That's the same intervals where you'll want
   to replace worn-out belts, hoses and clamps. Be sure to inspect
   radiator for any leaks or damage.

 * Use a Fuel System Cleaner -- Adding a fuel system cleaner to your
   gas tank after every oil change (every three months or 3,000 miles)
   can help you get better performance and gas mileage.

 * Maintain Your Car's Coat -- Give your car a good wash and wax before
   winter hits for added protection. Salt and the other products used
   to keep roads clear are tough on the outside of your car.

 * Keep Essential Tools In Car -- Always keep a winter emergency kit in
   your vehicle including:
     -- Spare tire
     -- Ice scraper
     -- De-icer
     -- Flashlight
     -- Blankets
     -- Other emergency items
