We want to make sure that your ready for what winter brings.

We started to get people messing with Jess, telling her to make sure she changes her blinker fluid

If you missed it this morning, we got talking about how the oil light on Jess' car came on and she wasn't sure what it meant. She said it said that she had 15% oil life remaining in her car. She told us that she wasn't sure what that meant so she turned off her heat in the car because she didn't want to use up her oil.

After I finally stopped laughing, I explained to her that the oil in your car is different than the oil people use to heat their houses and that the oil light coming on in her car has nothing to do with the heat in her car. So she can drive home with the heat on and have nothing to worry about.

After we talked about it for a few minutes on the air, we started to get people messing with her, telling her to make sure she changes her blinker fluid and I tried to convince her to make sure she changes the air in her tires to winter air.

She didn't fall for any of them but I thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone that there are some things you should definitely do to your car for the winter.

Here are the 5 things you should do to get your car ready for winter:

1. Change the oil and oil filter.
2. Replace your windshield wipers.
3. Rotate your tires/get snow tires/check tire air pressure.
4. Have your brakes checked.
5. Make sure you have an ice scrapper in car or truck.

Have a safe winter driving around here in the Hudson Valley and if we missed anything on our list, feel free to leave a comment below.
