Car Care Clinic preps vehicles for winter

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- As winter weather fast approaches, experts are encouraging people to start thinking about getting cars ready for chilly temperatures.

Madison College held their 11th annual Free Car Care Clinic on Saturday. Students and instructors offered their expertise to check belts, hoses and other winter problem areas for those who stopped by.

"The things that come in-- oil leaks, coolant leaks, ya know bad coolant, just applying what I've learned in the classroom to real life experiences, it's really an eye opener," says student Isaac Nowak.

Those who attended the event were asked to donate non-perishable food items. Last year, more than 200 pounds of food were sent to local pantries after the clinic.
