Winter is hitting Lebanon hard, and it’s important to know how to keep your car engine up and running throughout the cold weather. Here are some tips that could Save Your Engine This Winter:

Engine Coolant (aka Antifreeze) helps decrease the freezing temperature of water inside your car’s engine. It also prevents your car engine from getting deformed when the water expands to form ice. For proper results, make sure you mix and use the Antifreeze according to the product’s instructions.

The precise oil and viscosity is necessary to ensure your engine keeps running despite freezing cold weather. You should always have the right amount of oil in your car’s engine in order to make sure your car starts properly on cold mornings. The last thing you want is to be stranded on the side of the road while the cold rain is falling around you!

Your battery is another very essential thing to keep in mind. You should always check your car battery throughout the year, regardless of the weather. If your battery is starting to get old that means it’s time to replace it with a new one before the cold winter weather arrives. Another handy tip to protect your battery from the frost and ice is to buy a battery blanket which helps to insulate your battery from the low temperatures. A virtually free alternative would be to wrap old, used blankets on the outside of your car. Funny-looking, but very efficient!
