Here in Chicago, winters are harsh on your car. Make sure to check your Engine Coolant System so you don't get left stranded.
Check your antifreeze/coolant level. The most common cause of engine-related breakdowns is cooling system failure. It is important for each component of the coolant system be at 100% - in addition to the proper coolant type, mixture and level, but also the hoses, thermostat, radiator and coolant reservoir. Did you know that in addition to keeping the engine at the proper operating temperature all year round, the coolant system is also the source of the heat you enjoy during winter time?
