Time to winterize your Volvo!

Post by June » Tue Nov 20, 2018 11:30 am

Winter is upon us once again and it's time to use washer fluid that has a antifreeze agent to protect the system. We just had our first cold snap here in sunny Florida. To be prepared for the upcoming freezing weather I changed to winter washer fluid.

I also used Mike's antifreeze quality checker gizmo to be sure the coolant in the radiator is still good. If my battery had not just been replaced, I would have it tested too as it seems a weak battery fails around the first cold snap.

Really just a friendly reminder to winterize your Volvo! June
