This Winter has been a record setter! It's also causing damage to your ride! According to accuweather.com, the cold weather is taking its toll on...

1) Your battery...The cold below temps and Artic wind chills have weakened your battery. By making it work harder, the cold has sucked the power out of your "cells"...
2) Your fluids....The cold has thickened and broken down your fluids. Includes transmission, brake, power steering, oil and antifreeze too...Transmission is the big one..
3) Your tire pressure...Most tires lose 1 pound per square inch for every 10 degrees of temperature change.. Yup, we've seen that...
4) Your wipers and Washer Solvent...Cold and ice rips your blades, and wears on the wiper transmission or power source. The Solvent gets thicker and the pump wears out quicker...
5) Your spark plugs... Harder starts may cause "flooding" and gunk build up on the plugs causing harder starts every time

All good knowledge and items to keep your eyes on.. Looks like I'll be walking soon at this rate!
Burr...Carry on!
