Proper vehicle preparation and maintenance can ensure your truck survives the low temperatures of winter. We put together a list of 12 items you can complete to give you peace of mind as the temperatures drop. We recommend starting this list around October if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere and May if you’re south of the equator. Follow this checklist to make sure you’re ready for the season ahead.
1. Test Your Battery
If possible, have your battery tested prior to the cold weather snap. If your battery tests poorly or is teetering on the acceptable vs. bad line, you should consider replacing it. This preventive maintenance could save you from missing a day at work or being stranded after a no-start.
