With winter right around the corner, drivers need to take special care to prepare their cars for the unforgiving colder months. AP9 24ProtectPlus, a membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, advises that many typical winter car problems can be avoided with preventative maintenance.

AP9 24 Protect Plus recommends this helpful checklist to car owners to follow when preparing their car during Fall Car Care Month.
--Coolant should be flushed and refilled every two years. This is a good time to check the engine and the cooling system in order to identify any existing or potential problems before they become headaches.
--Although it varies among manufacturers and individual use, the motor oil should be replaced every 3,000 miles on average. Special wintertime formulas are available and may be necessary for motorists who live in cold climates.
--Check the battery, exhaust system, heater and defroster to be sure they’re all working properly.
--Try to keep your tank at least a quarter full at all times. This will decrease the chances of any moisture in the gas lines from freezing.
--Snow tires and chains may be necessary for harsher climates. Tire tread and pressure should be checked many times each month year round.
--Wiper blades should be replaced twice a year. Check all lights and signals and be sure that headlights are properly aligned for maximum visibility.
Homes and autos are two of the most expensive purchases most consumers make and maintain. That’s why they can rely on the benefits made available through AP9 24ProtectPlus to safeguard their valuables. Drive safely, concludes AP9 24ProtectPlus.
