YAKIMA, Wash -- Cold temperatures, snow and ice can seriously damage a car during the winter-- even if you never crash it.

Car experts suggest checking your anti-freeze to make sure you have enough to prevent your engine from freeze this winter.

Additionally, they suggest checking your tire pressure. Cold weather will deflate tires, causing them to shrink -- often at uneven rates. If your car's tires are normally at 35psi, cold weather may reduce them to 29 or 30psi. If they deflate at different rates, the car may pull to one side, potentially dangerous on slick roads.

Finally, car experts suggest checking your battery and windshield wiper fluids. Batteries should be replaced after 3years and 30,000 miles.
