The minimum requirements for vehicle winterization include a quality engine block heater, anti-freeze mixed to provide protection to -60 degrees, and up to 5W30 (standard) or 10W30 (synthetic) motor oil. Ensure all belts and hoses are in good condition and consider carrying spares if you are driving to Alaska. When you arrive, it is imperative you have your vehicle completely winterized.
