Pleasant Prairie winters are known for their stunning beauty, but they can also be challenging for drivers. The dip in temperature, snow-laden streets, and icy conditions require vehicles to be at their prime to ensure a safe drive. Here’s a guide from the experts at Dave’s Muffler to prepare your car for the cold months ahead.


  1. Check Your Battery:

Cold weather can strain car batteries. Ensure it’s fully charged and the terminals are free of corrosion. Consider a replacement if it’s been in use for over five years.


  1. Antifreeze Levels:

Ensure your radiator is filled with a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze to prevent freezing.


  1. Tires Matter:
  • Tread Depth: Worn-out tires don’t grip snowy or icy roads well. Check tread depth and replace if needed.
  • Tire Pressure: Cold can reduce tire pressure. Regularly check and maintain the recommended PSI.


  1. Wiper Blades and Fluid:

Replace worn-out wiper blades and keep the windshield washer reservoir filled with a winter mix to prevent freezing.


  1. Brakes:

A crucial safety feature, especially on icy roads. Get a professional inspection to ensure they’re in top shape.


  1. Engine Oil:

Winter often demands a thinner oil. Check your vehicle’s manual for winter-grade oil recommendations.
