Winter Maintenance

When the temperature starts getting colder, it’s a good idea to schedule a maintenance checkup. Technicians can give your vehicle a look over to check the battery, tires, belts, and hoses to ensure that everything is in good working order. It’s also a good idea to get the oil and oil filter changed as motor oil tends to thicken in cold weather. This will ensure that your engine stays properly lubricated during the winter months.



Check Your Tires

It’s important to ensure that your tires are properly inflated during the winter months. As winter snows begin falling, you may also need to change your tires. When the temperature goes below 45 degrees, you need to consider putting on winter or all-weather tires. This will give you the traction you need in the snow and ice. As cold weather can cause the air pressure in tires to decrease, its important to regularly check them. Also, don’t forget about checking your spare tire!

Check Your Fluids

Part of preparing your vehicle for winter includes checking all of the fluids. Make sure that you have windshield wiper fluid and antifreeze. If you are in an area that experiences heavy snowfalls, you may also want to change out your wiper blades for heavier winter wiper blades. These are more suitable for clearing ice and snow off of your windshield. When you are traveling on winter roads, visibility is important.

Double Check Your Emergency Kit

It’s always a good idea to have an emergency kit in your vehicle. This can be helpful if you get stranded on the side of the road at any time of the year. It’s particularly important during the cold winter months. Items such as a blanket, jumper cables, snacks, and an ice scraper can help when disaster strikes.
