It’s easy to get complacent and think of our Mount Pleasant winters as the cool seasons. Many people forget that our normal weather pattern for this area includes several nights that provide temperatures well below freezing. Some of us remember years ago when an evening or two in the teens was to be expected.
Without the proper antifreeze protection, the water in your auto or truck engine will freeze when exposed to a cold, freezing evening. The result of that can be a cracked engine block which then calls for a new engine block. That is expensive.
What isn’t expensive is preparation. Winterizing your car or pickup prior to the onset of cold weather just makes good sense. As part of the quick process, ask for:
- Check or flush of your cooling system and add antifreeze
- Check your battery
- Check your charging system
