During the winter months, it’s important to make sure your car is well protected. A mechanic at Craft’s Auto and Body in Petal, Brady Gibson, said a big tip is to make sure you have the right antifreeze in your vehicle.
Gibson said to make sure to combine the correct mixture of coolant to keep your radiator running smoothly. He also suggests keeping a close eye on your tire pressure. Gibson said colder temperatures can cause the pressure to lower. The ideal pressure for a vehicle is 32 psi.
