Preparing your Land Rover for winter? It’s a good idea before the snow starts flying to take your vehicle into European Auto Specialists in Cincinnati for your annual Land Rover repair. You’ll want to make sure your vehicle is completely up to speed with winter tires that are designed to operate optimally in 7 degree weather. Here are some other items to add to your check list in preparing your Land Rover for winter.
Make sure your antifreeze levels are topped off properly. You don’t want to discover they’re not when you’re heading to the top of a mountain in a snow storm. Have the antifreeze analyzed professionally to make sure its concentration levels are correct.
Stock Up on Fuel
Bad weather causes delays. Always keep your fuel levels topped by at least a quarter of a tank. You don’t want to be stranded because your fuel tank dipped. Be prepared with a tank full of gas.
Vaseline the Doors
You can keep your doors from freezing if you add a thin coat of polish or Vaseline to the rubber door seals. Squirting Wd40 into the locks will keep them from freezing.
Equip Your Land Rover
Make sure your Land Rover is equipped with all the winter equipment you’ll need before heading out. This means tire chains, a deicer and a scraper. Don’t be caught on the side of a mountain in a snow storm without the proper gear.
