Simple Thing Most Car Owners Overlook That Can Cost Big Bucks in Freezing Temps
It’s winter, and most car owners will overlook this one simple thing that can cost them a lot of money. The one simple thing I am referring to is the windshield washer fluid. If you live in areas which are below freezing, you must make sure you use a windshield washer fluid that can handle the lower temps. If not, you can cause a lot of damage.
When your windshield washer fluid freezes, you can crack the coolant reservoir, hoses, pump, and more. It’s very easy to make sure you have the correct coolant, just look on the bottle at your local store to ensure it is designed for freezing cold temperatures. You will see they have multiple types depending on the weather.
This is why I NEVER run straight water in my windshield washer reservoir.
