PLAINFIELD, NJ - Anthony Smith, Plainfield’s local vehicle expert at Storm’s Automotive, offers some winter tips to keep your car or truck running smoothly.

  1. Test your battery before the cold finishes it off.
  2. Warm your vehicle up for at least ten minutes on cold mornings if it has been stopped for at least three hours and the outside temperature is below 25 degrees.
  3. If you do not have heat, nine out of ten times you do not have any antifreeze in your car.  This could destroy your engine.
  4. Don't ignore a potential problem.  It never hurts to consult your mechanic.
  5. Remember to always pull ALL of the way off of the road in an emergency situation, especially at night.  You can replace a car, not yourself.
