How is your car holding up during this cold snap? If its running rough you may want to make sure it's properly winterized.  Suzette Teagarden with Reed Market Automotive says the first thing you need to check is the oil and make sure you're always doing regular oil changes at least twice a year. In addition, your coolants should be set at negative 25 to 30.  She says you also want to watch the acid levels: "Not everybody checks that. And that's the P-H balance of the coolant.  Once that goes bad the coolant becomes more acidic and it starts eating away at your hoses but your hoses will actually eat from the inside out;  but you won't be able to tell unless you're actually checking those hoses often enough."  Reed Market Automotive has a free car clinic for women only. The next clinic is on February 17th from 6 to 7p. Suzette Teagarden was a guest on KBND's “Your Town” this morning.
