If winter weather is in the forecast, keep your windshield covered. If you can’t park in the garage, leave your wipers in an upward position to keep them from freezing, and always use an ice-scraper.

Check your fluids
Don’t let your fluids get low during the winter months, and use ones that won’t freeze.

Check your battery
Make sure your battery is not old and is in good condition.
