Drivers could end up paying money to repair car parts simply because of your car not being able to adjust to the quick weather changes.
Jeff Johnson is hoping he can fix his car.
"Pretty much a dead battery," he said. "I had something that was leaching on it and this weather hasn't made it any easier."
He has owned his car for six years. He's owned that battery for two months.
Auto repair shop workers say weather changes can affect your batteries, engine, and even tires.
"The tire pressure will go lower when its cold," said Bob Minnick, owner of Minnick's Auto Repair. "Then when it's hot it gets hotter, it goes higher. If you have a low tire anyhow, you take a cold day it's going to be even lower cause it might lose two to three pounds."
Bob Minnick has been working with cars for years and says when thermostats can't cool properly because of the weather, it causes your engine to overheat.
"The extreme cold, the extreme hot, that's when we usually have problems with thermostats," said Bob.
Replacing a thermostat can cost you more that $100.
Mechanics say your exhaust pipes can damage during this type of weather also. Moisture that comes from your exhaust pipes can freeze and cause cracks.
Jeff feels ripped off by mother nature, who's costing him money to replace parts. The best advice he can give,
"Just basic maintenance, keep up with it," he said.
