You can avoid many dangerous winter travel problems by planning ahead.  For optimal maintenance, have regular service on your vehicle as often as the manufacturer recommends.

In addition, every fall:
Either have the radiator system serviced, or check the antifreeze level yourself with an antifreeze tester. Add any antifreeze, as needed.
It’s also a good idea to replace any worn tires, and check the air pressure in the tires.  In addition, replace windshield-wiper fluid with a wintertime mixture.

During winter, keep the gas tank near full to help avoid ice in the tank
and fuel lines.
If you are at or near the Lake of the Ozarks region – stop by and talk to
