FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - After being lulled into a rather warm fall cold weather has hit with a vengeance.

At Tuffy Auto Service on Coldwater Road, technicians are checking air pressure in tires, to make sure they grip the road properly.

Another big thing is making sure you have the appropriate antifreeze at its appropriate level.

Ken Smith of Tuffy Auto Service says, “You could have overheating issues, you could have no heat, obviously. The running aspect of the car depends on a good coolant system.”

Smith says you should keep a blanket in your car, just in case you get stranded somewhere.
