Get Your Pickup Ready for Winter with these Tips

2022 Nissan Frontier

As the temperatures begin to drop and the days get shorter, now is the time to start thinking about winterizing your pickup. Taking a few moments to prepare your truck now will help ensure that it runs smoothly all winter long. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you get your pickup ready for winter.

Change Your Oil

One of the most important things you can do to prepare your pickup for winter is to change the oil. Winter weather can be hard on your engine, so it’s important to use oil that is designed to withstand cold temperatures. Many truck owners opt for synthetic oil, which has a higher viscosity than conventional oil and therefore is less likely to thicken or freeze in cold weather.

Check Your Winter Tires

A good set of winter tires goes a long way in ensuring safe driving during the winter months. If you live in an area that sees a lot of snow and ice, it’s important to make sure that your tires are up to the task. That means that before you install them on your pickup, you should check the tread depth and make sure that they’re still in good condition.

Check Your Windshield Wipers

Another important thing to do before winter arrives is to check your windshield wipers and make sure they are in good condition. Winter weather can be tough on wipers, so it’s a good idea to replace them if they are more than a year old. Be sure also to fill up your windshield washer fluid reservoir, with winter-approved fluid, so you can clear away any snow or ice that accumulates on your windshield.

By taking a little time now to prepare your pickup for winter, you can help ensure that it runs smoothly all season long. So, change your oil, check your tires, fill up your windshield washer fluid reservoir, and maybe even bring your truck into our dealership for a winter tune-up. By following these simple tips, you can help keep your pickup running like new all winter long.
