1998 SW1
Wrench Winterizing

well, it's getting close to winter all around the U.S. it's starting to snow out in Utah, and it is getting colder every day in here in Michigan. I am wondering how to winterize my SW1, and I am sure more of you are wondering how to protect your vehicles (S-series or not) from the freezing cold temperatures of winter, the biting cold winds, and the foot after foot of snow, ice, and slush we are going to get this winter. Plus, I did a forum search, and couldnt find any topics. well, here are some articles on the internets about winterizing your car:

Google Search Results

one thing I am curious about is when is the right time to winterize? they are talking about a extremely tough winter, and I want to do this before the first snow. hell, even before the first frost.

[off topic] I am going to go get the insurance AND plates for my car. which my be just in time, as I ordered one of those sexy saturnfans.com lisence plate frames (which hasnt arrived yet. I ordered it a week ago, so it should be here any day now). Which is awsome, because I cant find the origonal dealer frame, it's not on the car (grandmother has the old plate screwed into the back of the car, which the old plate is registered under my grandfather's name, and it's expired, which is why I cant drive it on the street (yet.))[/off topic]

enjoy. -digital

The only thing that I REALLY need to do is change the fluid for the power steering. I'm too scared to flush my radiator now since the last time i did eventually led to a cracked cylinder head . Anyway, those are some good links, thank you.

all stock for now (nothin' wrong with that either)

I'll miss my Saturn, from the AEM CAI to the rear main oil seal leaks to the giant APC stickers on the side (sarcasm)

Those of us who are more than a little AR probably already have... . I go
through my monthly maintenance routine in September, and try to knock
out any projects that I need to before the weather turns ugly (antifreeze
change, fluid replacements, check pads, etc.). Having an unheated garage
is the major motivator in staying ahead of Winter.

I also bump up my tire pressure a couple of PSI to compensate for the drop when the temperature goes down (1 PSI for each 10 degree drop). Last thing I do is pull out the "winter driving kit" - snow brush, shovel, lock de-icer, dogsled, etc. - and put it in the trunk.
