So what do all of u do to winterize. So far oil change, check tires, lube doors to prevent squeeking and door latches to prevent freezing.

How long have you been in Ohio Paul? I actually haven't done anything but we haven't had any real snow yet, IMO 10W30 is fine for around here, I usually let mine warm up before I take it for a drive, lubing all the moving parts up can't hurt, and you remembered to wax it good right?
